Day 40/40! First Day of School!

Day 40/40! First Day of School!

Well we made it! Stew illustrated the first day bag lunch napkins. We only had one mini-meltdown about the direction Milo's shoelaces were flopping and Wiley did his usual last-to-be-ready thing. But we got loaded up with time to spare for pictures in and out of truck. Then I did the dorky snap a pic while they walked away thing too. Woot woot!

Day 34 - 39 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 34 - 39 / 40 Grateful Days 

Last week of summer vacation has both flown and crawled by. Highlights caught on bytes were: goofing with funhouse mirror at impromptu Payless shoe store stop; purchasing & testing a light-up crochet hook (cool but too bright, I later DIY hacked it with strategically placed black Sharpie); spending 6 hours at a lake water park where my acrobatic husband showed off his skills; having the boys put together their school supplies; and first troop level popcorn show-n-sell of the season went well.

Day 33 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 33 / 40 Grateful Days 

Last week of summer vacation... need to start getting up earlier, which is OK for me but will be slow going for the boys. They don't sleep super late as it is, but still. We usually do a couple school drills during this last week but I wasn't ready this morning. They were lagging behind me on the dog walk. Lovely cooler temperature & breeze this morning though!  Over the weekend I started on another crochet garment, from a pattern book (out from library) that has several cute things in it I want to make.

Day 28 & 29 / 40 Grateful Days


Day 28 & 29 / 40 Grateful Days 

Stopped by Sheetz on the way home from swimming yesterday and was happy to see a F'real Strawberry Banana smoothie only had 270 calories, yum. Have been walking both the dogs & boys these past mornings. Looking forward to eating pizza tonight. 10 more days until school...

Day 27 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 27 / 40 Grateful Days 

Lost track for a bit there over the weekend. Hate this time of year. Is there such a thing as Grinch of Late Summer? That is me.  Been basically more of the same since last post blah blah blah who cares. Grateful for trips to the Y (have never swam/swum/swimmed? this much ever!) also trips to the library to get new piles of books to leaf through. Grateful for air conditioning and ceiling fans.
