Grad Courses, Camp Rosales, and oh yeah Aiden

So I don't really know what I was thinking taking a summer grad course that is condensed into 2 months and is online! If you know me then you know that I do not like to read. It is not one of my hobbies that I enjoy. However, this professor is having me read this book entitled "Managing Information Systems" from cover to cover. Now doesn't that sound like a book you want to pick up and read cover to cover. Ah, NO. I am on page 300 and let me tell you, i can't wait to cover the next 300 pages! I have to read every chapter then take a quiz finally answer short essays for a grade. Also I have to participate in group discussions and projects completely online. At the end of the day it all works out and its all about time management, which is my forte.

Camp Rosales is this coming weekend and I can't wait. We have 27 participants, which is not the 44 that I was hoping for, but it will be a great weekend. I have 10 counselors and about 5-7 volunteers coming to help out. Also, for the first time, I have more new people than returners. In fact, these new people aren't even my family! Camp Rosales is turning into quiet the little venture.

Okay, I know you guys really want to know about Aiden, so I'll stop talking about me. Well he is commando crawling like crazy. Video coming this evening! Two weeks ago, and I think Sarah has already shared this, he would just screech at the top of his lungs for no apparent reason and for 30 secs to 1 minute. It is the funniest thing until you've heard it for 8 hours. It can leave quite a headache! Now he is doing something even better! You know that character from the star wars movies, the wookie. Yeah, Aiden is a little wookie. I'm not sure where how he does it but every once in a while he will do the throat gargle and sound like a little wookie. If he keeps it up then I'm going to start calling him, little wookie!

I know that everyone know we are a busy family and our household is somewhat crazy. Sarah and I had a good conversation last week and we decided that we would trim down our life during the week. We realized and noticed when Aiden gets into a routine he does really well sleeping. So we decided that during the week we would go to work, come home, eat dinner, take a walk in the park, come back home, take Aiden a bath, then put him to sleep, then we can have time to do whatever else is needed. That schedule leaves no time for entertaining any guests. So we have changed every one's visitation days to the weekend. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Plus it creates a routine for our family. I think that will definitely help Sarah and I get into a routine for our own benefit plus it help Aiden!

Okay I have talked enough, love to all,

Good idea - trimming down your social life during the week. Nothing's more important than your immediate family.
