Seems like I was just posting that spring was here – now it’s summer already. I can’t believe it!
I’ve dropped a few more pounds for a total of 37 pounds lost so far – not too shabby! My original goal was to lose 40 and now that I’m just a few pounds away, I was on the Internet (uh-oh – you know this can’t be good) and found a height-weight chart which told me that for my height, I should actually be about 10 pounds lighter than I am right now. I guess that 40 pounds ago, where I am now seemed like such an impossible goal, but now that I’m here, 10 more pounds should be easy, right? So with a minor adjustment, I’ll be at my ultimate (and surprisingly achievable) goal by the fall.
The kids started a fabulous summer camp program at Rowan University this week called Kids Rule. It teaches them a new sport every week and has them running, swimming, and playing hard every day – Emily even fell asleep on the couch last night! It’s good to see them having so much fun – makes me feel less guilty for working all day.
Matt has joined the summer youth Hobo Band playing the clarinet and he’s also taking lessons this summer from a very talented teenage girl as well. He’s surprisingly good – I think music is going to be his thing.
Emily just had her spring dance recital as well as her gymnastics ‘expo’ too. And Andrew will be pitching at his last Little League game on Saturday night – he is going to be too old to play Little League next year.
We’re getting ready to go on vacation in a few weeks – back to our favorite campground, FrontierTown in Ocean City, Maryland. I’m really looking forward to it – I could use some time away to just relax and spend some time with the kids without a hectic schedule…
