Looking Forward

I'm a follower.  Thanks, Lisa for the idea! ;)

Here are some things I am looking forward to...

This weekend - We are busy non-stop! Friday night we are hosting a retirement party for my mother-in-law.  She retired this week after 42 years of teaching! And all in the same grade in the same school district! Pretty amazing.  Not something I aspire to do, but sometime I respect.  That's impressive!  She has a master's degree and over 30 extra credits she took over the years not to mention all the professional development and stuff she's done over the years.  Saturday will probably be spent recovering in the morning and cleaning up.  My parents are taking my child home from the party so we will have a child free morning that will hopefully be enjoyed and we won't be too hung over from the previous night! Then we will either get our camper out then or wait on that until Sunday.  Saturday night we have a graduation open house of one of my husband's cousins but it is just down the road so that is nice! Sunday - We have my baby cousin's graduation open house and it is a bit of a drive.  We are hoping to get there a little earlier to take my dad out for a bloody mary for father's day! Not sure what we will do with the rest of our day when we get home but camping preparations are a for sure!

This month - Our annual family camping trip! We are planning on 8 days which will be our longest camping trip ever.  As a child my husband used to go all 7 days (which has now turned into 10 for some people) but in college we'd always go up for a 4 day weekend and then with Isla we did a 4 day weekend and then last year we did a 6 night trip and this year here we go on 8! It should be a blast. His mom is the oldest of 10  at some point in the week all will be there.  And most of his 29 other first cousins will be there for some part of the week as well.  And there are now, 12, I think great-grandchildren and I think 10 of them should be making an appearance at some point, so it's a lot of fun.  A lot of work, but a lot of fun! Plenty of time to read, enjoy the sun, catch up with family, campfires, and lots of childhood memories that get reminisced every year!

This year - I'm excited to b attending a good family friend's wedding this year in Louisville.  It may be just me attending with my parents or my husband might come too, but I'm excited to watch him get married and explore the area.  It's still up in the air but my fingers are crossed it will be happening.  Otherwise, I am just going to be equally as excited to go tailgating with my dad again this fall to watch my Buckeyes!

What is on your looking forward list?
