Jim was out on the deck yesterday and somehow stirred up a bunch of hornets or wasps. They swarmed him but luckily he only got one sting, just below his temple. He wasn't too bad yesterday. It throbbed but the pain wasn't too bad. Not so lucky today, it is quite swollen and very hot to the touch. Anyone got any home remedies for bee stings? He wasn't able to sleep very well last night, I feel bad for him. Also, any suggestions on how to get rid of the hive (if we can find it)?

I didn't realize how much I missed the boys while they were gone until they were back. The house just isn't the same without children's voices, giggles, running and jumping. I enjoyed the quiet but really, after a while, that gets boring. Now if I'm bored, I can join the kids in some game, story or craft. And of course, now that they are home, there is always cleaning to do!

How has your summer been so far? Have you done anything or gone anywhere special for the summer holidays yet? We are planning a trip to New York next month to take in a Wiggles concert with the kids. They are really looking forward to it, and we must remember to bring the Gravol!

I leave you with a cute picture depicting brotherly love! (Of course they are embarassed by this picture now so I thought I'd share it with the world on the internet! Why not?)

Ouch! I know there is a topical anti-sting stick that can be found at a local drugstore, but I can't recall it's name...hmmm... It's probably better by now... Oh, also, Benadryl can help too :)

ALSO... that is a darling picture - too sweet!
