I cannot BELIEVE it’s been so long since my last post! I cannot BELIEVE it’s the last day of summer! I cannot BELIEVE that my child’s nose hasn’t quite running for two straight weeks! Make that two children. And I certainly cannot BELIEVE that Ry and Jack just had their hair cut today, and the last time they had it cut was before summer even began. Good grief.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, ya’ll. This weekend we were at the old house, slaving away to get it in sell-able condition. I must say it’s lookin’ pretty darn good, and if I were a potential buyer, I’d take a peek in the window and say “I’ll take it!” If only, oh, if only we could find a week where we could work nonstop, I think we could wrap it up. But that week isn’t to found, so it’s a few hours here, and a few hours there. We also have to get the new house shingled, and we have to put together a yard sale, say nothing about getting this house cleaned out to actually make room for our stuff…the list is endless.
We DID manage to get a family reunion in; my mom’s cousins are plentiful in this part of the country. And we were able to visit one of our favorite places; “Uncle Don and Aunt Carol’s”, which are really my mom’s first cousins. Is this not a fantastic place to get together?
Best thing is it’s practically a stone’s throw from the ocean. Perfection.
There were SO many children there; every time I turned around 3 or 4 new kids popped up. The pictures I took represent about 1/16th of the crew. It was wonderful! And I snapped away at some girls…I don’t get that chance very often in this house full of boys!
Well, I hear the kids-the nap is finished. Supper needs to be made, laundry needs to be put up, so I must post and get off the ol’ computer. I have about a million new things on my plate for the fall, and I’m even dreaming about a new blog format-we’ll see how that goes! I also have a great new little book to share with you. So stay tuned, and have a last minute ice cream to celebrate this very last day of summer ’09!
