You happened, apparently. I'm not really sure when you happened or what happened within your thirty days. Kids grew bigger. Loads of laundry disappeared into drawers and reappeared in piles on the floor. My aunt came to visit. Our former foreign exchange student/sister for life came to visit for the month from Germany. We swam in my grammy's pool and David showed off his American Ninja Warrior moves on the swing set. We went to the library a million times, give or take, to pick up requested books and check in with our summer reading. That summer reading program is something - I love how they sweetly award your child who won't stop reading with more books he will not put away.
August is looming large and there is a part of me that feels like it is just preparation for September. David will be starting kindergarten. I feel so unprepared for him to go to real school, but I know he is ready and I know it will be good. The knowledge doesn't seem to be making it any easier though!

Oh my word, look at that BABY! I want to scoop her up :) You had a good, and busy, month. :) Here's to an amazing August!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jennifer. I'm rather fond of her myself. :)Delete
I love the pictures!You are right that August seems to be a month to get ready for September! I'm trying to lay low and not plan or work at all. :) Maybe I should convince myself to get things ready....but blah.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Heidi. I am trying to make more of an effort to take pictures lately. :)Delete
If I find any motivation, I will let you know and share some with you. I'm not very hopeful though...
That sounds like a fun month :)ReplyDelete
Your children are adorable! I love the one of your daughter looking at the babies.
Thanks so much. That picture cracks me up. :)Delete
LOVE the pics! Especially the one of your two on the couch! What cuties!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I'm not sure she was thrilled with hearing the story of the Transformers, but I was thrilled he was reading to her. :)Delete
Your kids are so cute!!ReplyDelete
The last picture made me laugh!ReplyDelete
My daughter is starting kindergarten too!! (!!!) But she's been in "real school" for awhile so I think she'll do nicely - even if she'll be the youngest in the grade (born Dec.23rd).
I always wonder if babies are confused about things like mirrors and photographs...Delete
David has been going to Pre-K a few days a week. I think he will be just fine. I'm just not sure I will!
It sounds like your cutoff dates are different than the ones in NJ. David is a December birthday too, but he will turn 6 this year. Is your daughter excited?
