Today I looked at the fridge and realized that the paper I wrote out the summer rules on at the beginning of summer was covered up with a drawing and I almost went to hang it where the kids could see it when I realized that summer is over. I can take down the summer rules. I could throw it away. Just like that.
But just throwing it in the trash seems so sad right now. I guess I’m mourning summer.
I wrote this spur of the moment on one of the first days of summer thinking I would revise it and make it cute and fix the run on backwards sentence structure, but it was one of the many things I meant to do.
I didn’t get it all in! I made a bunch of good recipes and even took pictures of a few of them and never put one on here! I meant to, so maybe I’ll go find the pictures and do it anyway. Someday. Maybe I will someday.
I meant to take the kids on all these great hikes. It didn’t happen. But we did go to the beach a lot. And we did have some play-dates. And we did go to Cape Cod with my mom. And my sister did come visit. And I'm sure we did some other fun stuff but I can't think of what right this second.
Jake had a birthday and I meant to write this great post about how awesome he is. I didn’t do it. But I did make him a cake and throw him a party. (And just so you know, he’s awesome.)
School has started and our lives are now full of schedules and homework. The bus comes BEFORE 7:00am. That’s just insane. Who thought that was an appropriate time to send our kids to school?
1st day of 6th
1st day of 3rd
1st day of 1st
These were taken before the transition nightmare that is the first week of school. Which I am trying to learn from and then forget about because there is no good reason to remember a week like that.
I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
