Where has January Gone?

I swore to myself I'd do better at keeping the blog up to date this year. And I really do have every intention of doing so! I just don't know where the month has gone!

Well, I do really. Rich has been busy at work and has pretty much been working 15-18 hour days for the last 2 1/2 weeks -- including weekends. So I've been single parenting again. I don't know where the time goes but I don't seem to have much time to sit down each day, let alone write a blog post. Hopefully, we're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and and we should be back on track soon!

On Saturday, Josh had the opportunity to go to the Georgia Aquarium with a friend and spend the night at the aquarium! He had a great time and came back exhausted, but excited.

This is the only picture I have of Josh at the aquarium sleep over. My friend Sherry took it - her sons Sean and Jackson invited Josh to the sleep over. Josh is in the middle of the frame looking up at the fish. This is where they slept!

Then on Sunday we had Josh's Cub Scout Den here for one of their meetings. They spoke about energy, electricity and matter. I thought we needed to provide a snack so before the meeting Josh and I made home made brownies for the Den. And because it was at 4:00 and I knew the boys would be hungry I also made peanut butter and apple wraps (tortillas with peanut butter and apple wrapped up). This also helped keep a very tired Josh entertained!

And the snack was a huge success! The boys liked it better than the one that was recommended by the Cub Scout itinerary (popcorn with marshmallows soaked in butter and then all tossed together with orange gelatin granules - yuck! They tried it, but didn't like it).

Josh (and Sam) have also been hard at work getting their Cub Scout Pinewood Derby cars ready! I have a few pictures, but I'll post those later this week. The Pinewood Derby is on Saturday so I'll be sure to post pictures (and maybe some video if I can figure out how).


  1. I love the peanut butter/apple wrap idea - am totally stealing it!

    Aaron was able to have a sleep over at the aquarium when he was in the 5th grade and he loved it! He didn't get much sleep that night, but he made up for it after he got home. :)

  2. This is a fascinating article with so many information.I think this is interesting.


Yay! Comments! Thanks for letting me know you were here!
