Real Life vs. The Blog

I have been way too lax about posting to my blog. Every day I think of what I will write when I get "My Turn" at the computer. But by the time my turn comes, I'm either in a hurry or just plain too tired.

In the meantime, real life continues. Justin turned 16. As part of the celebration we took the kids and his best friend to Paramount's King's Island, Home of "The Beast", made famous by Louis Sachar in Goosebumps, for homeschool day. The older kids rode all of the "Big Rides" while Kaity and Khi spent the day in Hanna Barbara Land.

They got to meet Sponge Bob.

They rode the small coaster. Khi was not impressed. He spent the rest of the day on less frightening rides.

Kaity, it turns out, is quite the thrill ride enthusiast! She has the right parents for it. I'm afraid of roller coasters. Benny loves them. Benny gets sick on spinning rides. I love them. Kaity wasn't tall enough for the "big" coasters yet but she and her dad conquered the Beastie. It's a smaller version of the regular Beast. But it is larger than the roller coaster that comes to our county fair each year.

Justin and Jamar won at the "Cheat You Till You're Broke" Basketball Game.

They spent the rest of the day chasing the balls.

I'm still knitting along on my shawl. I don't get a lot of knitting time, so it's a slow process. But it's not shawl weather right now anyway.

Hope your summer is going well.

Looks like a great day. Gracie was quite the thrill seeker from the very beginning too. Always in search of the first car for roller coasters.

Angi,we're all scrambling to keep feeding the blog monster.But bottom line is you write because you want to. When you don't want to, don't. It seems like people are always happy to read what you have to say, whenever you get around to saying it.
