Sunblock for--ONE ARM??

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY FRIEND, AIMEE!!!! Hope it's a great one!!! :-) XOXOXO

It's supposed to be 85 today. Can I just write that again?

It's supposed to be 85 today. Holy Cow I love it! We are grilling hamburgers tonight. And eating them outside. WOO! I love being outside. Although I'm going to have to start putting sunblock in the car, for my left arm!

I think I've mentioned this before, but I have to wait about 30 minutes in line to pick my middle-schoolers up from school. They get out at 3:45. If I am not there by 3:15, the line of cars is so long (all the way out to the street sometimes) It's actually 4:15 before I even GET to them. So, I leave my house at 3, get there by 3:15-ish, and sit in the car and wait. And the sun always shines on my left arm. I can't block it. Yesterday was bad. I had to sit in the passenger seat after a while, because I could feel my arm burning. So, I'm going to put some SPF70 in the car, for my left arm. Hey, don't laugh, my dr. told me that's one of the most common places for skin cancer for people--the left arm. Because it's the one the sun usually hits while driving! So, don't call me crazy just yet!

I'm taking Thing Four to the "jumpy castles" today. He loves them. And it gives him an outlet. He sure has a lot of energy sometimes.

Things are busy, but good. Thing Three had soccer last night and he proudly proclaimed he's one of the best players on his team. Well, THIS year they've put him with other 10-year olds, he is no longer playing up with 11-13 years olds. (We signed him up late last year because we'd just moved and they already had a ten-year old team so they played him up on the older team.) I liked that he was getting challenged last year, and he certainly held his own against those older boys, but he just looked so...tiny out there! Now he looks like he's where he's supposed to be.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Hopefully Spring is "springing" wherever you are!

I keep sunblock in the glove compartment all the time. Even with tinted or partially tinted windows, you've got to protect your arm.

85? You're lucky I like you so much or I'd be jealous! ;)

Seriously, have a GREAT time enjoying the outdoors!

Ha! Yep the left arm and soon you'll have a nice colorful supply of ballcaps. The Carolina sun is horrible for the scalp.

Have fun grilling!
