1st Week as a SAHM!!

With a week of no work under my belt, I think I'm going to like this stay-at-home job of being a full-time mama.....and a full time cook, a housekeeper, a pal to play catch with, a library goer, baby pool swimmer, grocery shopper, organizer, closet cleaner outer....um, yeah, that's just beginning the list of things we accomplished this week. I enjoyed every minute of it! I think Bo had a good time too, but I do think he misses his friends from the babysitter's. There's been a few times we've seen other kids and he's like, "That looks like Lauren." Or, "Is Kris going to be at the pool?" Poor guy, I'm hoping we run into his old babysitter and her clan at the pool sometime here soon so he can have some playtime with them. He does great playing in his room or out in the backyard by himself, I do join him occasionally, but I really need to get into a routine of setting play dates for him to socialize.
Other than the list of activities above, we've been busy. For Memorial Day weekend we camped at a near by lake. It was the first time using our camper. My family and a few friends joined us and I can easily say the kids had a blast. We adults did too, but goodness, I forgot how much work it is too. We were lucky though, we had four days of absolutely beautiful weather! My dad and grandpa just kept saying how they couldn't remember EVER having a Memorial Day weekend with that nice of weather. Bo was a great camper. He pretty much roamed the campsite playing with whatever he could find when his cousins weren't around. He never really tried to wander off out of our sites. Which is something I couldn't say last summer. He napped in the camper during the day and slept well each night. During the day we rode our bikes and went down to a little beach to swim. Hopefully we'll have great weather next time we go.
Another thing we've been busy with is getting Bo's new room set up. I ordered him a bedroom set that Kelly has to assemble. Watch out Bo - stay away from daddy! Wow, a bed, nightstand, and dresser is taking the better part of our Saturday to put together. Thank God Kelly is pretty handy and willing to get it all together asap. We still need to get a mattress and are waiting on the room darkening shades to arrive before we actually move Bo in there. Hopefully by the end of the week he'll be sleeping in a big boy bed! Pray that it's an easy transition!!
Here are a few pics from our weekend of camping and Bo and daddy assembling the nightstand.
