Whew !!! 7am came early this morning as g-son came in and went right back to bed.  I couldn't go back to sleep thinking about all the things I need to do today.
G-son woke up at 9am after I had come in from doing all the morning feeding chores. We had our breakfast and then went to run errands. We needed chicken and cow feed, I got my glasses fixed where one of the nose pieces had fallen off and lost, went to Aldi to pick up baking supplies and went by my friends house to pick up my Avon order.
Back home we had lunch and then g-son was building with his legos while I baked 18 caramel cakes for orders this week.
As I finished baking Rebecca and Evy came up for a visit. G-son gave Evy the Daisy Duck he had picked out for her from the Disney Store.
Hubbie came in from work and got on the lawn mower. Today has been a nice sunny dry day with temperatures in the low 80's with low humidity making it feel really nice  out there.
#1 son came after g-son to get him ready for day 2 of VBS.
#2 son came by for some papers that he had stored here and said he wasn't going to get to close on his house today. He was aggravated because this is his last day off work. Hopefully they will close tomorrow or Wednesday. Apparently the buyers bank hasn't sent their information to the lawyer yet.
The seat on our lawn mower broke so hubbie had to finish the mowing with #1 son's mower. Hopefully he can get it fixed without having to buy a new one.
After I did chores and iced 6 caramel cakes I headed up to church for VBS.
G-son was having a great time again tonight.

All the kids love craft time and making things to take home with them each night.
This is the craft they made last night.
This is g-son's sweet teacher and her son who is g-son's best buddy.
More fun at outside game time. Bet'cha can't catch me !!!!!
And of course music time is always fun.
I came home to more caramel cake icing time as I iced 6 more cakes. With my back pain subsiding I am trying not to over do any particular motion or stand too long at one time.
I caught up my blog publishing from last weeks vacation tonight and now am back on schedule. I am slowly chipping away at all the task that need to be caught up this week along with the regular busy schedule.
This is the cross on the church as I left Bible School tonight I looked up and said a thankful prayer for all the kids that were at VBS tonight as we set a new attendance record with over 100 children.

May all the glory be to God.
Good Night and God Bless.

VBS is always the best. I loved going when I was little. Sounds like you are getting back into your routine after such a wonderful vacation. Sorry to hear about the bad weather on the way home. I've been in similar weather on the interstate traveling to and from Athens GA to visit my son. Do you do any stretching exercises for your back? I have back problems and find stretching helps and so does limiting my lifting. Have a great day and God Bless you.

I remember VBS from way back when, and it was so much fun, and it is great to see that children are still enjoying this time. Happy Tuesday busy lady! :-)
