Did you know it's August already? It kind of snuck up on me. Now school's right around the corner and we still haven't even scratched the surface of all the things we were going to do with the kids this summer. We started out with such a good schedule, but inevitably chaos overcame my best of intentions. Now, we sleep in as long as the baby will let us, eat a late breakfast, try to clean some area of the house (to the harmony of two whining children), eat a little lunch and kick the kids out of the house so I don't lose my sanity. Then I track them down for a late supper and send them to bed with nasty threats of big spankings if they don't settle down and go to sleep. Yep, that's my day in a nutshell.
Of course, there are family reunions and last minute get togethers peppered in there, so we are in a constant state of either packing or unpacking, with loads of laundry on both sides. Oh, and the A/C quit in our van, so we're stuffing ourselves into the little Mazda to get from here to there and back again. Then I get involved in three projects all at once and the whole house seems to fall apart... and the next thing I know, it's August already!
That's about all the news from our corner of the world, except that the little man caught his first fish. Much excitement around that event. And at least one thing accomplished off of that long list of summer activities.
I'm off to get working on one of those projects. Hopefully I'll come up to the surface before September!
