while I waited...week 29

Phew!  Another fun-filled and packed week of summer!  Colby wrapped up his last week of Strength and Conditioning camp, Holden attended an art camp each morning, Colby had Wrangler boot camp each evening, and Hope had Hip Hop camp each evening as well.  Lots and lots of trips into town!  The big kids leave for camp today and Hope can't wait for a special date night this week!  Since I knew we were going to be dropping off kiddos, our week in review only goes through Saturday.  Be prepared for a ton of pictures from camp in next week's post! ;)  Here's what I did last week while I waited...

My week started by helping Katy KonMari her closet!  We thought it would be fun so we Snap-chatted our experience!

Here's her finished closet!  She did a great job of purging, re-evaluating, and organizing her space!

Shelly picked up the girls from their first day of art camp and snapped this cute pic!

My mom came to town so the girls stayed with her and enjoyed ice cream in bed!

We spent lots of time volunteering this week!  Colby and I helped his YMSL group sort enough food for 2,000 meals on Tuesday.
while I waited...week 29
After the Food Bank we stopped by to pick up these two cuties from their second day of art camp...

and then met their grandmothers for a yummy lunch at Wings 'n More!  It was so fun having Nana and Dede there!

Our school district is opening a clothing pantry this fall so a few members of our group went on Wednesday morning to help sort clothes.  This organization has opened up even more opportunities for Colby and me to serve our community.  Spending time with him AND serving?  Yes, please!

Bitmojis + Snapchat?!  #gamechanger!

This was Thursday morning, Colby's last morning of Strength and Conditioning camp.  This is how I felt like I looked every day when I was picking him up! :)
while I waited...week 29
After pulling ourselves together, Hope and I went out to the Food Bank.
while I waited...week 29
This group of amazing kiddos helped prepare 360 bags of food for senior citizens in less than an hour!  Kids giving back to their community is my favorite!
while I waited...week 29
Dede was heading home so we had one last lunch with her before she left.
while I waited...week 29
Holden completed this painting at art camp and I can't WAIT to hang it!!!
The best part was finding this little hidden message written on the bottom of the canvas!
while I waited...week 29
Hope had a fantastic time at Hip Hop camp this week!  I snapped this pic of her watching the big girls dance.  She cried on the way home because she was sad that camp was over! :( #blessit
while I waited...week 29
 Holden wrapped up art camp on Friday and brought home this double canvas!  #I'mrunningoutofwallspace!
while I waited...week 29
The leaves were made out of clay making it a 3D painting!
while I waited...week 29
Shelly was a life saver on Friday night and offered to take our trio plus Carly to the movies.  I desperately needed a few hours to try and clean up around the house.
while I waited...week 29
and mamas everywhere said, "amen!"
while I waited...week 29
 Saturday was Lil' Wrangler tryouts for Colby and his partner, Shay.
while I waited...week 29
 We went to lunch afterwards and I opted for a couple of quick pictures.  I said "pose" and this is what I got!  I think they are going to make a great team!
while I waited...week 29
 Now, that's more like it!
while I waited...week 29
And then I spent the rest of the day getting the big kids ready to leave for camp!  This is truly their favorite week of the summer.  They LOVE TBarM!!!
