Have you ever had kids come running to you to say there are bubbles in the toilet? I just assumed someone forgot to flush. Which shouldn't be happening anymore because I told them all that if they wanted to save what they put in there I would grab a bowl and dip it in and put it in his/her room. I'm all for saving special things. But they weren't trying to save it. Nothing special there. So they are flushing on a very regular basis. Now I have no idea how regular my kids are. Hah!! Anyhoo, back to the suds. Yes. I said suds. I told them to flush it because I didn't have a clean bowl to get any into. Not that a clean bowl would matter. I just didn't want to do it. You know? But Ruthie and her friend were adamant that I should come and see. And then Sam started in on it. "Oh My Gosh Mom. There really are bubbles in the toilet!" So I went. I looked. I saw. Suds. Real, honest to goodness suds in the toilet. I tried flushing. Did you know that if you flush suds they bubble up even more? I know now. It took a few flushings and telling whomever put something sudsy in the toilet to never do it again. But now the toilet is back to normal.
Today is our last Friday before school begins. I was talking to our RS president a couple days ago about people my ward missionary companion and I have visited and she asked what she could do for me. I said.. I need one more week of summer. I'm not ready. I just need one more week with them home. But, alas, we go back next Tuesday. Isaac is really excited about his schedule. Sam knows his teacher because I requested and Ruthie is excited that she may be in the split 4th/5th grade class. But they are nervous to begin a fresh school year. I'm not nervous. Just not ready for summer to be over. When do you start school? And, are you ready?
