    Puppies! Oh how cute puppies are!

    We have mostly spent our weekend being in full summer mode. This is my husband's weekend to work so he's pretty much gone the entire weekend with the car, so we've been doing fun "at home " things. Giant bubble blowing, working our way through a bag of about 300 water balloons, chalk drawing on the driveway, and lots of playing video games inside until it cools off enough to actually GO outside.

    I'm an awful wife so dh is making his own Father's Day dinner. JK, he does 99% of the cooking in our house by choice. My mother offered to take us all out to dinner for Father's Day but he HATES restaurants on holidays so instead she bought a big hunk of prime rib that was on sale at our local grocery and he's grilling it up, making mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

    We spent a chunk of yesterday and today at our lake swimming and kayaking. Dh drove to his parents house (3 hours away) on Friday and drove back Saturday with his mom, so I spent those days desperately trying to get the house clean.

    We woke up today to no water so had to pull everything out of our utility closet - the well ballast (or whatever it's called) is behind our stacking washer and dryer, which also blocks the circuit box. We had to take down all the shelves of canned goods and spices, take down the dryer. Dh had already checked the circuit (it can be reached around the dryer, it's just tricky) but then after we pulled down the dryer, he decided to flip the appropriate one off for a few minutes and flip it back on - and we had water! Still don't know what the issue was but oh well.

    I should be planning some history for the week, or at least going through the math/LA they did Friday so I can set up the next stuff, but I'm tired and getting to the point where I'm not sure I care if they do any school this summer. I had plans but the past few months have been crazy busy and stressful and the summer is going to be super busy, and they aren't really behind so why do a want to push it?

    A very peaceful Father's Day at our house. Homemade cards, a few little surprises, played chess and it was a good one. Getting ready for the girls' dance recital. Dress rehearsal tomorrow, 12 to 10pm. Ugh! And then the recital Tuesday night. Relatives visiting from Indiana and Pennsylvania. Fun but super busy. I work backstage so it's a long two days for this mama. The girls belong to a small, recreational dance studio but they take it seriously. 12 costumes and accessories. This year the girls organized and labeled everything: 10 and 13 years old...it's time! I'm tempted to double check their bags, but they said it wasn't necessary. Oh, boy....let's hope it's true!

    My oldest was a competitive dancer for 14 years and we never dealt with a 10 hour rehearsal! Yikes, that's insane.
