I can not believe that summer is over here in Texas. In less than 6 days, my 2 oldest head back to school. It seemed like only yesterday that we were celebrating the last day of school with this:
I started out with so many grand accomplishments for the kids like journal writing each day and quiet reading each afternoon. But something, or rather, someone got in the way..... Ian joined our family at the end of May and we haven't looked back. Who cares if we had a little less sleep this summer??
So what did we do this summer?
We collected a few postcards....update on that coming soon! We are almost there!!!
We attended a few camps in 100 degree heat.....
But we always got to cool down in one way or another!
We attended our very first sleep-away camp!
And jazzed-up some skateboards in Art Camp while Brody was learning to play golf...
The most important thing that happened to us this summer..... Bonding with our newest Darling. He has been the sweetest little guy. Totally a third child. Goes along with the crazy daily life we live around here. He trudged along to all the camps and activities we had planned. Stayed up at the lake house many times this summer (can't wait for him to be old enough to go out on the boat!). And fit into the groove of our busy but totally fun lifestyle!
And now the last week of summer is here. And of course we have big plans to celebrate it! Gattiland, bowling, swimming at the YMCA (waterslides!), the Ringling Bros Circus, Wicked, and movie day all before we head back to school next Tuesday! Whew! Summer is going out with a bang here in Texas!
