Good morning and happy Tuesday.
Ready for coffee?
I just realized that we only have two more Virtual Coffees until school starts.
How is this possible?
How is it that time already?
So if we were really meeting for coffee this morning ...
I would tell you that the above has made me realize we really need to try and
savor these last two weeks of Summer the best we can.
Today we looked over our Summer List to see what we still needed/wanted to do.
Some just aren't gonna happen; there really aren't any kids movies at the Drive-In right now,
we may not go roller skating and we keep forgetting to buy those dominoes Wyatt wants.
And our Backyard Party which involves an outdoor movie on the projector and is really
secretly on my Summer List, will probably not be until September when it is much cooler out.
Other than that, I am feeling pretty good about our progress.
Now that it is August I am back to watching my nieces again one day a week.
So until school starts that is four girls and then Wyatt. In his defense, I think he does pretty good
being the only boy most of the time. After school starts though he & my oldest niece will both
be in school so I will have Charlotte, the 3-year old and the baby who is not quite five months old yet.
It's a little crazy but actually the kids play very well together and it gives them lots of
cousin bonding time.
The last week or so Charlotte has really been into her baby dolls, which are actually my
Cabbage Patch Kids form when I was a kid. The dolls have quite the extensive wardrobe that my mom made for them years ago and then we recently hit the mother load of doll clothes at a rummage sale recently but that might just require a post all it's own.
She likes changing their clothes and then pretends to take their pictures.
Doll carrier made by mom too, oh how I LOVED this.
Another realization I have come to this week is that I have not done a third of the things I wanted to accomplish this Summer. You know how you start off the Summer with pipe dreams of organizing closets and drawers and going through clothes and painting rooms and then when Summer is
nearly over you realize you did none of it?
Well, maybe you did do some of it, but I didn't.
I hate that.
Oh well... maybe this Fall?
I briefly mentioned our little get-away last week to St. Louis for a few days that we somehow managed to squeeze in between Charlotte coming down with the virus-with-a-rash-that-mimics-chicken-pox-but -isn't (whatever) and me getting the flu. Not sure how that happened, but we did it.
I have a bunch of pictures to share from that as well but for now I will just share a few of my favorite iphone pictures, I think the St. Louis pictures might require two posts all it's own.
It's amazing how just a few days away from home can do for you.
We had so much fun, we did a lot but had time to just relax too and I think it was just the little break
we all needed....Not that I wouldn't kill for an adults only get-away though, because I totally would.
Well, that's about it for me today.
Tell me what is going on with you in your little corner of the world...
Is the end of Summer vacation coming soon for you, too?
*Oh--reminder, Ten on Ten is tomorrow.
Have a great day everyone, thanks for stopping by today!
