in two days it will be august and when I think about that, i have pit in my stomach. as i was driving today, i noticed the rolling hills that surround us and took a deep breath. i know it does not do any good worrying about that first day back to work, thinking about the little moments during the day i will miss with my babies, napping, actually having time to read a book, making pancakes on a wednesday mornings and managing household chores. however, there are days that i long for our routine and schedule and i think the kids do too! sooo, i am glad i got that off my chest.
as for the summer so far, soooo great! we have had some craft time and personal craft time (thanks to naps). we had a month of violin lessons that went sour real fast. i think when your three year old hides behind the instructors couch and then throws his shoes at her vase, it's time to get the hell out of there. needless to say, there will no longer be violin lessons, just playing for fun (maybe next summer). however, captain hook loved his sports camp (shocker) 3 hours of running, jumping, hitting and screaming. tinker bell has learned to say, "i want my charlie" and has a real talent for destroying my laptop (hence no capital letters, i no longer have a shift key).
in two weeks we will be heading to lake erie to spend a week with my family on kelley's island. a much needed vacation for us all, especially peter pan. our peter pan certainly hasn't grown up in many aspects of his life but he certainly works his hiney off everyday.
my near future creations for the school year. an attempt to make some hand-made montessori inspired materials for my kindergarten classes and very possibly a hawaiian skirt (you'll see why on a later post).
enjoy your day!
