Where did the summer go?
It has been a blast. The kids have had a full summer! We’ve done our “Daily 5” in the mornings for the most part, hoping the transition to kindergarten for my son won’t be as big of a challenge as it was last year when he went to Pre-K.
The kids have had many highlights.
- Friend sleeping over for a week
- Birthday parties
- Hotel stay with a swimming pool
- VBS for the week
- Lots of bounce houses opportunities
- Discovery Science Place
- They got to ride a train!
And then I crashed. Ha!
Well, it’s time for a midyear check in. How is everyone doing on their goals so far?
I’m learning to be realistic on what I can and cannot do. Being stretched big time this year, but I’m making progress, even if it’s slower than I would like.
We’ve seen the release of the short story, A Princess No More, and I’m making strides with the edits from my content editor. Whoohoo!
That said, we are gearing up for the fall here. Why does everything have to start back up at the same time? It’s enough to make me hyperventilate. Of course, I’m not merely participating, I’m helping, which means I’ll have responsibilities. And that means I have to think. I have enough trouble trying to plan menus, grocery lists, and editing without adding more details to juggle. And no, I am not an extrovert. And yes, I’m slightly crazy. My line up:
- School: my son is off to kindergarten…I wonder if I’ll cry again…he’s Growing Wings! Such a sap.
- Awana: Bring on the games!
- Life Group: This one’s new. But I hear we will be having fun, playing games, connecting with other couples.
- Mom’s Group (Think MOPS): Help coordinate the kid’s program
And did I mention that my hubby has decided he’s going to replace all the carpet with laminate flooring before September?
Breathing in…breathing out.
Coupled with my writing stuff and tutoring British Literature (So looking forward to that!), I’m going to take August and September off of blogging as we transition into the fall. I might even go offline for a day or two or so. But don’t worry. I’ll still be around. Lurking. I have a couple of review commitments for August and September, but that’s it. I’ll be focusing on editing and transitioning into a new schedule with more irons in the fire. Didn’t I say I was going to cut back??? Ha!
Hope you all have a great rest of the summer!
What is starting back up for you all this fall? Are you excited? Or dreading it? Me—probably a little of both. 🙂
