Oh. My. Word.
Summer is over. My kids go back to school a week from today. Where did it go?
We've only been to the beach once. I still have a Groupon for the water park. We haven't been to Car Wars at the local track yet! I don't have a single shot of my kids jumping off the rock wall and into the pond down the road from us!
We had a great summer. Lots of doing nothing. And we needed that. No one kid is over scheduled, but as a family, we are pushing our limits during the school year. 3 kids in organized activities, 1 husband who travels a lot for work, 1 house on the far outskirts of town (meaning far away from athletic fields/facilities & far away from carpooling options) and 1 mom getting everyone back and forth equals chaos from late August to late June.
I'm looking at my calendar as I type this and am distressed to see all the doctor and dentist appointments this last week. It will make it a lot harder to fit in the other things I want to get done. As will the 2 hour soccer and football practices in the evening. And the extended forecast; calling for rain.
But I've got this.
