So, uh, to anyone who didn't believe me when I said I wouldn't be posting much this summer, told ya so? :)
This week I am grateful for:
- My children being home from North Carolina; and
- The Columbus tournament being cancelled.
Not necessarily in that order.
This week is pretty much back to reality. Tonight Mike has some meeting in Louisville to rush off to, tomorrow is Brendan's orientation for Middle School (yeah, I said that. MIDDLE SCHOOL), and Thursday is the open house at Nathan's school. Next week both boys go back to school and soccer practice resumes. Oy.
For anyone who thinks that raising boys is easier than girls? Yesterday we spent four hours shopping for shoes and came home with exactly one pair per child. Then we had to go to two stores to find a pencil box in the exact dimensions dictated by Nate's first grade teacher. He's thrilled beyond words to find out that he'll be in a class with his friend Holden, who was with him in both preschool and Kindergarten, plus not one, but both Jaydens, at least one of whom is in his cub scout pack.
This weekend we'll be doing an outing with scouts where we ride our bikes on the towpath up in summit county, and a lovely train meets us and brings us and our bikes back to the Winking Lizard to eat wings and drink beer.
