We finally got our internet back. I have a ton of catching up to do. Oh, and the housework too. Oh well. First things first.

With the crazy hot weather we've been having, most of our activities have taken place in the air conditioning. I thank God once again that I was born in the 20th century. My children have been playing school, painting, fighting, you know, the usual. Carl (our neighbor) has been over to play every day and he helped me every evening last week with VBS also.

We were all hiding inside and painting the other day. Zaya told us, "I'm painting a good picture."
To which Carl responded with the classic, "Oh! What is it a picture of?"
Zaya said, "It's a picture of some good."
"Hmmm. What does good look like?"
"Well," said Zaya, "It looks like this." Well, now we know.
Later Zaya decided that it was a bunch of meteoroids including the massively powerful "atmosphere meteoroid" that could do anything. It even destroyed an entire galaxy. I'm afraid that battle hadn't yet been portrayed when I took the picture, so all you're looking at right there is "some good".

This morning the kids and I have already been to W'ville with some friends, eaten lunch and thrown water balloons at each other. The high today is 109 degrees, so we'll be spending the rest of the day inside.

Wow, that is some good!
I finally have my internet back, just not on my computer. I have to use my mom's or the kids' computer.

What a great idea. Z an A would love throwing water balloons at each other.

I have some tarps that need hosing down. Maybe they can play that water game tomorrow.

Water games are a must when it's so hot outside. You are a great mom!
