Ah...school starts tomorrow. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I love to have my kids doing something great and productive, but sometimes the schedule totally wears me out. I've been an O.K. mom this summer, but haven't really pulled out all the bells and whistles given my condition. I felt guilty in the last few days, so we hit Wheeler Farm on Friday (in a million degrees heat) and swimming yesterday (in a million degrees heat). There was ward movie night on Friday, which was awesome, because it was COOL in the evening.
(riding Marshmellow the horse)
(feeding the un-hungry ducks)
(the kids loved this rooster....they named him the Hannah Montana rooster because of his crazy rock star hair. )
(Quinn, finally being brave in the fountains. Emi finally decided to go down the big waterslide. She has done it in the past, but has had an attack of nervousness about such things this summer)
(Parker, the fish)
The best thing I did this summer: introduce Parker to the "Wimpy Kid" books and Emi to the "Ramona" books. Kept them busy!
The worst thing I did this summer: let Parker and Emi totally entertain Quinn all the time. That little boy is going to be LOST without his bro and sis.
The laziest thing I did this summer: never worked out. I figured I could at least go on a walk a day. It was rare that I did. I was already completely swollen so it was hard to want to go and swell up more. It's flip-flops till this baby comes out.
The most time-consuming thing I did this summer: Facebook. It must be balanced. I'm kind of over it now.
The stupidest thing I have done all summer: I started teaching dance again last week. Pulled my groin muscle. Seriously cannot walk. As if I wasn't attractive enough right now, let's add a limp.
Best house thing I did this summer: My nursery. I'm really proud of it, and I'm not even done.
Worst house thing I did this summer: I let sunflowers take over my zinnia garden. Long story.
Best thing overall: Coronado. Enjoy every second of it.
Happy start of school! Back to the rat race.
