Summer's end

I can't believe it, summer is coming to an end. *sniff*sniff*. I've loved having GG around. Today is the first "official" football meeting. I keep expecting him to come through the door soon but I know he won't even be home for dinner tonight. I suppose I should get used to that.

Here are our pictures from the 4th of July. It was a hot Hot day but we didn't want that keeping us from having fun. We participated in my parent's neighborhood parade/celebration.  And then we went to a BBQ. I loved how the kids all covered their ears during the fireworks. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.

(nevermind the 2005 on the embellishment....didn't notice it until i flattened the image. opps.)
We've had family here the last two weeks and that had been a lot of fun-I'm afraid we didn't take any pictures with them but they were here and we played. I'm glad they came and made our summer more fantastic.

GG hasn't been to the zoo here in town so that was one of the things he had on his list this summer so we went and did it. Boo loved it...especially the train. ALL ABOARD!

Since football is starting up and my family all leaving us, I need a plan to keep my body and mind occupied. So my two goals this fall:

1. Make a food storage/emergency preparedness plan. And do everything that I can to fulfill it.

2. Once a week have a some kind of learning activity for Boo.

I'll post my plans when they are made but at least the goals are out there.

Goodbye summer...

Summer Lovin'

It's been a super long time and it has been a wonderful time. GG is practically done with grad school-still has to do a portfolio before graduating in August- but no classes! It has been wonderful to have him around so much. (However, I am afraid it will only make football season that much harder for me.)

We are in summer mode around here and I love it.
MEMORIAL DAY- Swimming and a Baseball game.

We treked out west for my neice's wedding (yep, my neice that's number 4 of my neices and nephews to get married). GG helped out with a football camp and I hung out with family and took lots of naps. Boo was AWESOME on vacation. I could live on vacation. She slept well, she ate well, she played well. She had older cousins to play with (or follow) so I didn't have to watch her every minute.  We were happy-we're happy still but it was great!

Thank You Lovely Family and Friends that made our trip wonderful!!!!

ps. I'll post 4th of July photos later....I'm all tuckered out! ;)
