I hate to see it coming. But I know it is inevitable.
The days are shortening, the university students are back in town.(and my student is -packing up his junk to move back on campus) I’ve gotten a bunch of projects accomplished around here in the last 2 months and we went on vacation for 10 days.
I haven’t been blogging because I’ve just been to busy finding my life again. The past 9 months have been really rough for our family. It probably isn’t permanent but we’ve had almost a 2 month lull in the craziness. I can’t tell you how thankful I am.
At the beginning of the summer I had the kids make sand bucket lists(not life lists just summer lists). We needed some focus on what we were going to do with our time. It’s been good for all. Here are the lists and what we’ve marked off.
Swim a lot with whole family
Have a picnic(a real one instead of in front of a movie)
3. Have a sports afternoon
Have a lemonade stand at the garage sale
6. Star Wars Quizzing
8. Hide and Go seek in the dark night
Go to the pool lots
Have play dates with friends
Get things in their places in my room(recently moved around)

I think I am ready for a list for the fall. I am feeling super overwhelmed about getting back in to school and all our regular activities. It will be fine but I am needing that focus again. And I want to try to knock off a couple more of theses things on the kids list. It will be fun trying anyway!
