Where has the time gone!? I was suppose to read 5 books this summer. Miss Charlie and I were going to work on her reading words each day. Mr Simon was going to be completely potty trained. So many projects were lined up to get done. Just like that we have just over a week left of summer.
I finally took some well deserved time off this past week and didn’t work or pick up any shifts and it was needed! I organized and cleaned well as much as you can do with a two kiddos and a puppy, haha and of course went swimming and relaxed a bit too.
Wow, it has been a busy but fun week over here. We have been spending more time at home with our new puppy so we have had lots of visitors. Here are just a few things making me happy right now:
Last year Miss Charlie only went to kindergarten until 12pm. So I did not need to make her a lunch for school and only had to pack a morning snack for her. I absolutely loved this and having her home early for the day was great. Now this year she is at school until 3pm except for on Friday. On Friday’s all of the kids get out at 12pm. #woot
We have a new family member named Java! Since our 10 year old chihuahua passed away there has been a lot of dog talk in this house. I always thought that after Billy was gone that we would take an animal break. I also thought though that it would still be a few more years until she was actually gone.
For the long weekend we went to “Family Camp” at Caton’s Island. We were invited by friends to share a cabin with them and I am so glad it worked out that we got to go. We made so many memories and had a great weekend.
Just like that another Summer month is over! I am so thankful we have the month of August though. On the agenda for this month is to finish school shopping early so that we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of summer!
Hi guys today I am enjoying the sunshine. We have had rain, cloudy, and muggy days around here and this is our first beautiful day in awhile. So I am with the kids by the pool soaking up every ounce of it. Before I head back to life with the kids though I wanted to share this video with you:
This was a MUCH happier week over here! This weekend I must work BUT we have an exciting long weekend to look forward to in the near future and I am going to be doing a lot of packing next week. Raise your hand or your coffee mug if you have great plans next weekend…cheers! Now onto the stuff making me happy right now!
Miss Charlie just got back from a two night stay at Camp and I am so happy. That was a LONG three days!!! I never planned to send her to camp at just six years old I always thought she would be at least eight but I have to say this was a great practice run. My hubby and I both grew up going to camp, volunteering at camp, and working at camp. Camp is a wonderful experience. Miss Charlie asked to go after having a field trip with her school to this particular camp. I decided to be brave connected with another Mom in her class and sent her with a friend.
