Usually Monday isn't a restful start to the week but I've been looking forward to this day since last Monday. We have been going nonstop and today is the day I can just stay home in my pj's, do laundry and cook supper. If it's hot maybe the kids will play in the sprinkler. I might give the boys haircuts.
Over the weekend we finished out the soccer season, yay! We were also able to attend a home school conference and I ordered a significant number of books for next year, excited about that. Nothing makes me eager to for the new school year like new books.
While we were at the conference we learned about and bought essential oils. I am excited to start using them for Bethany's allergies as soon we receive them in the mail. Bethany's allergies have been really bad lately and we were planning on havering her tonsils and adenoids removed this summer but have now decided to wait a bit longer. The essential oils are good for numerous things ,if they are something our family finds helpful I will definitely be sharing more about them later.
Joe and I are finally up to date with our phones, we made the jump from dinky phones that couldn't ever send and receive pictures to iPhones. I had a brief moment of panic when I first used my new phone but I have been able to get over it. There is so much to learn...
So far, my favorite thing about my iPhone is the ability to take pictures. I am loving Instagram. You can follow me at sippycupsandfingerprints.
If you have an app that you love, please let me know, I would love to know about it.
P.S. As most blog readers know Google Reader is ending on July 1st. If you use Google Reader to keep up with your favorite blogs you will want to switch to a new reader. I recently did so with Bloglovin' and it was super easy and fast since I already had Google Reader. If you have never used Google Reader I would still suggest looking into Bloglovin' so that you can go to one place and immediately see which of your favorite bloggers have blogged.
