Camp Oma started the week with a free and easy day and by the end of the day, the Goldpebbles and myself were all a little more relaxed than we were at the start. There was a bit of bickering in the morning, but that went away as the day progressed. When I arrived this morning, Jonah and Ollie were still in bed . . . tired boys, but Sam had been up for two hours. Evidently his internal clock just does not allow him to sleep in no matter how tired he might be. We watched the Brazil vs Mexico World Cup soccer game from 10 to noon and it was a good one. We are Brazil fans because the boys love Neymar, their star player. But Jonah also likes a young player on Team Mexico as well as their goalie who did a great job today. The World Cup Quarter Finals start on Friday, so we still have a lot of soccer games to watch! Afterwards the boys played with Legos for a bit and then we were off to my house for lunch and to scout out the perfect place to build a tree house. When Justin asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day I told him I wanted help with projects, specifically building a tree house for the boys. So that is what we will do when the Handley-Hunts arrive in two weeks. Because of the mid-week 4th of July holiday, Jonah then had back-to-back afternoon commitments. His Monday 4:30 guitar lesson was changed to 3:30 and then he had lacrosse practice from 5 to 7 pm. Sam stayed at home while Ollie went with me to Jonah’s lesson. The guitar teacher also happens to be the father of twins that are good friends of Ollie’s. So Ollie played with Roland and Meadow while Jonah had his lesson. Then it was home to get ready to go to lacrosse. Heather was home by this time, so she took Jonah while I stayed with Ollie and Sam. It was a long day for me as I hung around to go pick up Jonah at 7 pm. One of Jed’s roommates from his years as a graduate student at MIT is here on the Cape visiting from Colorado and was coming to dinner tonight. So, I offered to go get Jonah so they could visit. It takes a village.
