Only 1 more day until school starts back!!! Yay!!!!
Who does that?
It was wonderful, and yet it was also like eating way too much at an all-you-can-eat donut buffet.
I definitely over-packed this summer with fun activities.
Lesson learned. Schedule more down time. Of course, next summer is a moving summer, so all bets are off for that one.
Good-bye, somewhat-dear summer.
You’ve actually over stayed your welcome. It’s time for fall to arrive. You were a well-behaved summer, the most exciting summer I can remember. There was so much rain that the temps stayed out of the 100s. Thank the Lord for that. We will remember you fondly.
But I need regular life to become more…well, regular…again. So please take a coat with you as you go because last year winter never showed up for work, so it sort of felt like you never truly left us. We’re hoping that won’t happen this year. I happen to like winter.
Goodbye dear summer, thank you for reminding me how much work referee-ing 4 youngsters all day long is when it’s raining outside every blessed day. I do love reminders, but really it is time for you to go. You really must be leaving. Australia is waiting for you.
All right, hon, you go get cooled off now. Send us some of that rain this winter in the form of snow.
Shut the door, and lock it. I over planned this summer, and I need it to end now.
School supplies are purchased, Open House was last night, and the big day is so close I can taste it.
We received an email the other day saying that the first two days of school will only be half-days, so no school lunch will be provided. I still have to feed them lunch. But I’m not going to let that kind of negativity drag me down, y’all. I bet if I leave ’em up there until 3 with granola bars in their backpack they will just think I got confused……
Kidding. I’m kidding. I will behave.
In all seriousness, we DID have an incredibly fun summer with no mishaps that I can recall. That in and of itself is enough to make anyone thankful. Plus, we went on about 3 different vacations. Amazing.
Yes, this summer actually was quite Disney like.
Here are a few photos of the highlights:
Some of you will be proud to know that Joshua always makes sure we go to church while on vacation.
Nonna and DaddyO took the kids back to the hotel around 9, and Alan and I stayed out dancing until 10 or so!!! There should be more weddings. It was so fun to be dancing. More people need to get married and hire a deejay, and then invite us so we can dance.
Also, we taught the boys the YMCA song/dance on this trip.
By the way, those are the BEST high heels ever. I’ve had them since 2007. I wore them when I walked down the aisle at Amy’s wedding, 9 months pregnant. These are my official wedding shoes.
Yes, okay, this might have been the best summer ever. While I cherish the memories, I have now regressed to “Oh it’s raining, and it’s the last day of summer….Just watch t.v. all day…Yeah, sure, play 3DS too.”
So it’s definitely time to go back to school. Some of the boys were even wishing school was starting back today! Me too, y’all. Me too.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
