This was a fun week-- Craig got to go away for a team building event with work and do white water rafting and golf. Then when he got back, we all went with him for a couple days to the Revel Resort in Atlantic City which just opened last month while he had some business meetings there. It was gorgeous! The sun only peeked out but we got to relax and enjoy being waited on. We also stopped by an Airstream dealer and checked them out. I think that is something for years from now... the kids aren't really into camping.
When we got back, we hung out with our neighbors and subsequently got mosquito bites. So I found this: "Bug Bites and Homeopathy". I'm about to go upstairs and try some Ledum.
And since I'm on the subject of homeopathy, if you're concerned about using sunscreen, you should consider these facts: "Here Comes the Sun: Throw Out the Sunscreen". Now is the time to make up for vitamin D deficiencies of the winter. When I had Caroline tested last January, the test came up deficient in vitamin D which is the case for most people these days. Common sense in the sun is the best way to avoid getting too much.
We've had a good Father's Day weekend so far-- s'mores on the patio last night around the campfire, fun presents for Daddy, the kids were the senior alter servers today at Mass and were recognized by our Deacon, we spent a lazy afternoon reading the paper and taking Elle for a walk behind our house (they finally opened the fence!) and I'm making Craig's favorite Crab Pasta tonight for dinner. We also ran into the kids' bus driver who we met when they were in Kindergarten and First Grade, when we first moved to Lancaster! They usually attend a different Mass time so it had been a good year or even two since we saw them, so of course Bob couldn't get over how much they've grown! He and his wife are like family so it was so nice to see them this morning. It also reminded me how quickly time has gone.
I hope you're having a good weekend! Just remember: Ledum or Apis for those bug bites (read the short blog post to decide which one)! Ciao!
