New Week, New Summer Camp

Isn't summer supposed to be relaxing?

This week R started a new camp for an hour or so each morning. I was waiting during check-in with a mom who told me:

"How long do you think this is going to take? I have my oldest daughter at swim team right now. I have to get her (points to other daughter) to swim lessons in 15 minutes at the pool. Then I need to come back and get (son) a few minutes early so I can drop him off at swim lessons, then back to the other pool for swim team pick-up and then home to eat lunch before our afternoon activities."


I got tired and stressed out just listening to her. Whatever happened to playing at the pool or park or just in your own backyard?

Speaking of backyards, we plan to use our grill again this week for meals:

Grill-smoked whole chicken, oven fried okra, sweet potato fries
Chicken Salsa Verde Tacos
Grilled Pizza and Fennel/Grapefruit Salad
Grilled Flank Steak with Chimichurri and Roasted Zucchini
