What we have been doing:
Our days have been busy lately. Busy in a good way.
Honestly, most of this summer was hard for me. Losing my grandmother forced me to think about things that are better left forgotten. My anxiety reached an all time high, and them I had the pesky infection that kept me on the couch for almost a month.
Once I started feeling better, we jumped right into vacation mode and enjoyed ourselves.
First we had our trip, then we got together with friends that we hadn't seen in weeks. Then we spent most of our afternoons visiting with friends for talking (the moms) and playing (the kids), had lunch with our friends, and went swimming.
One day the boys and I went to a Back to Homeschool field day and picnic at a local state park. Then I enjoyed a dinner out with a couple of mom friends.
Chris and I took the boys to a water park for the day, and I rode the one water ride that I said I would not. It was super scary. I prefer roller-coasters to water-slides.
I planned my homeschool year and a co-op with a couple of other moms from our homeschool support group.
Finally, I met my new nephews. They are twins and super cute!
The last month has been so wonderful that it totally makes up for the spring and early summer that I experienced!
