I know everyone here is waiting with baited breath to hear what's going on in our lives.
NEW SCHOOL YEAR for homeschool programs! I am sooooo psyched, I have to stop myself buying stuff right now...forethought, be a good steward of our family money, etc.
But I am secretly coveting so many, many things I've seen over the summer.
My best friend (who surprised me with a HEPA unit for my room when she found out I didn't have one in May and the pollen was so bad), surprised me AGAIN by planting both the large garden plots at the end of our driveway when I told her I'd given up on gardening this year because of my lung issues. I almost cried.
Both her 9yo and my newly-turned 9yo got their red belts in Tang Soo Do on Wednesday. That's a pretty huge deal at their ages...only the blue belt to go before black belt!
We're spending our summer basically doing NOTHING. No camping (except in the yard) because Dh's work schedule is so wonky and now he's taking extra shifts to pay for Dd14 to get braces.
She really needs them and we never thought they'd be a possibility, but we're going to bite the financial bullet and go for it.
I bought mini rex/holland lop mix outdoor bunnies from a friend for E's 9th birthday. We built them a huge rabbit run and they're living in our old chicken coop connected to that. Sooooo adorable!
Other than that, hanging around, reading, karate, not much else (which is so nice!). Now if I could just see my own husband more than once a week...
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and that all the kids are...growing like weeds!
