I cannot believe school starts next week. The summer seems both endless and short at the same time. I was feeling like we got nothing accomplished, but that is not true.
* Took our first ever camping trip to Northern Michigan. Heavenly.
* I attended the Kenyon Review's summer writing workshop. Inspirational.
*E was ill at 4th of July, but L and I managed the fireworks.
*L had her tonsils removed and spent 2 weeks being quiet and recovering. Towards the end of the 2 weeks I had to sit on her big time.
* L attending camp at E's preschool, took dance camp, and art camp. She loved it. Leanring and having fun during the summer.
*E went to camp every week M-W-F, in part to hold our spot for fall and in part to give me time for school and time with just L!
*L and I painted pottery
*We went to the Zoo and Zoombize Bay a fair amount
*H took L to DC to visit his cousin and see the sights.
I had thought we might have more time for running around, but we were busy
*L and I both had killer B-day parties
*We went to one wedding, staying overnight in a hotel! A highlight for the kiddos
*Farmers markets trips and we grew our own tomatoes
I read about 10 books and had 2 MBA classes.
So all in all, it was a busy, fun and productive summer. Looking forward to school starting and having a "normal" routine.
