Things have been crazy busy around here! My camera is having issues, soccer is keeping us hopping, and we are working on gifts for my sister's baby shower this weekend. (I'm going to be an aunt!!!!) Also, allergies are going crazy, and I got stitches this week. :( I had some moles removed back in April that my dermatologist was concerned about. Three of them came back as precancer, but the lab reports showed they had gotten it all. Well, one came back and brought a new friend, so it had to be cut out. It hurts! Anyway, I will update soon with pix from our "trip" to Mexico, and our Exploration Day 15 and the sweet gifts we made for my niece. On a quick side note, the Bru Crew has really taken this "trip" thing very seriously! They keep pretending to be in Mexico. Smiley calls it Me-hee-co, just like a Mexican would. Little Man keeps pretending to be from other random countries, and the girls keep asking him what brought him to Mexico if he's from St. Kitts & Nevis, or wherever he's pretending to be from at the time. It is hilarious to overhear their random conversations as I am working on my niece's gift, or cleaning, or cooking, or whatever. They also play this really fun app that is like the Geography Game from MFW called Stack the Countries. (The app has a mini game called "Map It" that is just like it.) They are learning the names of SO many countries all over the world. They are so sad that we're "skipping so many" in their words. I reminded them that if we spent 2 weeks on every country, we'd be studying ECC for 5 yrs! They suggested we just spend a week on each, and be done in 2.5 yrs. I love their thirst for knowledge!
