I just don't know how other mom's do it...how they manage to find time. I had hoped to write more during summer break...I even cancelled all appointments for the month of August...too the month off from Worship Team at church and yet...summer vacation ends this week. I am, again, profoundly sad. I am not ready for my kids to go off everyday to the places called 'school.' I like them home. I like for us to get up when we are ready and not because the alarm insists. I like that my kids have to be called in for dinner when the sun is just beginning to set and not because they didn't finish their homework or because it's dark before dinner. Yeh...snivel whine! I should be saying how happy and thankful I am that my children have a free education. That my daughters as well as my sons can get an education. I should be saying I am grateful my children are healthy. I should be looking forward to only one child at home during the day. I should be excited that I only have to fix snacks and lunch for one....and for all those things I am sooooo eternally grateful. BUT this is my blog and this is my end of summer Va-K whine!!! Stick around...the next showing will be in 365 days.
Goodbye Summer Vacation!!!
Attached are a few, very few, pics of the summer activities. We had birthdayS every month during the summer plus a few other activities. Picnics, waterparks, camping, parades, festivals, Oregon Zoo, and swimming.
