Off of Hiatus (at least for a little while)

I realized that I was missing my blog and my blogging friends!

So at least for now, I am going to start blogging again. It may be just once a week or so.

I cannot believe summer is almost over! WOW did it zoom by! My son is hesitant about going back to school, but he really has been missing his friends. He misses going to the Scout meetings too (they do not have these in the summer)! Oh yes...he had an accident right before school was out and broke his arm! He dealt very well with it! I was so proud of him.

We are fortunate to have a great summer program to send him to. They have known him since he was 2 years old (he is now 7 ¾). He went swimming Mondays and Thursdays. When a new kid movie came out they went to see it (and road public transportation, which the kids love). They also did crafts, and held plays for each other.

This summer was our first ever Boy Scout Camp. We were so very lucky to be involved this year. It is the 100th anniversary of Scouting! Wow, was that an exciting week. I will be posting pictures to catch everyone up. The boys (and parents) had a great time…it was very exhausting and HOT.

When I last left off, we were doing the Biggest Loser at work. Well….I WON!!! I kept it off for a while but started to gain the 20 lbs I had lost back. Soooooooo back to Weight Watchers I went! So far I have lost 13.5 lbs in three weeks! I have started to exercise in the mornings. My dogs love this; they get to go walking around the neighborhood and be nibby.

I am in a LAEDership training program through my work until the end of October. It has been an excellent experience. I have learned a LOT about how a great leader should be. Last conference we went over public speaking! I had to do 6 speeches and put together a power point presentation (all of which I had little to no experience in). Well after all of it, I came away with a better grasp on public speaking as well as what to do when I am speaking. I didn't realize there was so much to think about…where to look, what to do with your feet, legs, hands….auugghhhhh.

Any way….it is good to be back and I look forward to catching up!

Hi Beverly!!! So nice to see your name pop up on my comments! I missed you, girl. Nice to catch up on what you are doing. I'm so glad you are still losing weight, good for you! I hope you are enjoying the rest of your summer.
As you saw on my blog we got away for a day and enjoyed ourselves enormously in Kenora, such a sweet little city. I love the water, so it was very relaxing. We will be going away for two weeks to see our girls on the west coast in a few weeks time. So if I disappear for a while, that's why.
I am looking forward to your photos of the Boy Scout camp.
Hugs, Cindy S

YAY!! I'm so glad you're back! Your soi is such a doll!

MY son broke his arm this summer too! He slipped running through the sprinkler at Auntie Shawn's. Must have hit it just right. But only had to have a cast for 3 weeks, and he is as good as new, Thank the Lord!

So glad to see you back...missed you!

Welcome back Beverly! I was thinking something was wrong. I try to post now once a week and it's been even less this summer.
