The Story of Bacon
I can't believe summer is almost over or at least for us who live in Georgia! Schools starts in two weeks. There are still so many things I want to do with the kids before they go back to school. Today we are just hanging out at the house. It was a beautiful morning and we spent it in the pool. Addy is now sleeping and the house is kind of quiet. Roman is playing club penguin and Winston is packing his backpack for his camping trip tomorrow with the Boy Scouts. They are sleeping out somewhere in the forest. He is so excited. We bought him a pack on Tuesday at REI. Frank and Harris are in Utah. Harris will be attending EFY at BYU! What is EFY (Especially for Youth). It is for children ages 14-18 and is a week long conference where they get to know others with the same religious beliefs, come closer to God, and most importantly have fun; however, before Frank drops him off on Monday they are going to do some hiking. I have already received an e-mail showing me what they had for lunch (German), so it looks like they are off to a good start. Now you are probably wondering what is the story with Bacon. My family minus Frank loves bacon! I had some left over from the other night when I made spaghetti carbonara and so I cooked it up. Winston exclaims, "If you can't say it with words, than say it with Bacon." I am assuming this might be some phrase from a TV commercial. It cracked me up though. He was drooling like the golden retriever in the commercial who runs around saying, "Bacon, Bacon, Bacon." I took the leftovers and chopped them up and threw them in the chocolate chip cookie dough I was making. The results were as I suspected-delicious! Well, I am off to go back the rest of the gangs suitcases. We are off to Colorado to hang with family and my best friend of 27 years. I am so excited. Have a great weekend! What is on your agenda? Do your kids go back to school soon and if not do you have any summer trips still in the works? Do tell me!
