What's Happening Wednesday? 6-30-2010

Welcome to What's Happening Wednesdays?

I always have things going on during the week - or things going on with my kids - just stuff that I think I should post - but never seem to have anywhere to post it! I would love it if others would do posts about whatever is going on with them that they want to share - whether it be a gripe or good news - it will all be welcome here!

On my last What's Happening Wednesday post I said that I would have my daughter's grad pictures up and - you guessed it - they are not up (can't find the camera we used. . .)  BUT  I do have other pictures of all the fun stuff my son and I have been doing.  And since I didn't do a What's Happening post last week - this covers the last 2 weeks.

First up was a week of morning soccer camp.
I think they were playing Farmer and Foxes here - Jake had a "tail" tucked in his shorts and the other little boy is trying to grab it.

They were playing "crab" soccer - and Jake was the last one standing.

Here they were playing "Tom and Jerry" - His coach was "Jerry" and when he was touched "Tom" would chase him back to the starting line.

Then - we had our first day at the pool.  The fountains were the biggest draw.

We were just getting ready to get in the car.

Sunday afternoon we made water balloons so we could attack Dad when he got home.

But let me tell you about Saturday night.  I had received an email that Rachel Vincent was going to be signing books at the local Walmart.  I was very excited as we rarely get anyone doing just book signings up here.  My sister went with me and we walked all over the Walmart and finally found her.  But it wasn't just Rachel.  Get this - it was 5 - yes 5 authors!  Carla Neggers, Susan Mallory, Rachel Vincent, Emilie Richards and GENA SHOWALTER.  (Yes, I was excited to meet Gena Showalter!)  Needless to say I had to buy 4 books - but you will hear about them on my next Mailbox Monday.   I just happened to have my small camera in my purse so I snapped this shot.

So - what's happening in your little corner of the world?

What a fun feature!

The water play shots bring back such fond memories-- summer with a 12 year old is a very different thing, as you know.

I love the idea of stumbling onto such a wonderful collection of authors at Walmart!

Thanks for sharing with us!
