Tick tock....our summer is coming to an end!
I couldn't wait for summer to get here and it is hard to believe it is coming to an end soon. Most of us will start heading pack before our contract time just so we can throw hours upon hours into getting our classrooms to look "just right" before our new students arrive. We will work sometimes with out A/C and without help, but we still do it....every year!
It has been a good summer. I may not have achieved alot of my DIY projects I had envisioned, but we did do ALOT this summer. Here are a few things:
*My daughter (16) is ready to get her drivers license after alot of practice
*she also got her first job (and is very excited)
*Both daughters (16 and 10) went to summer camp for a week
*youngest daughter attended golf camp (she ♥'s golf!)
*she also receives private lessons from a PGA pro 2x a week
*Oldest daughter practices with the varsity cross country team 4 days a week
*I have spent an enormous amount of time on Pinterest finding wayyy coool stuff!
* I have managed to keep my yard green all summer in the Texas heat
*We took a week vacation to the Texas coast
*I read all three novels in the Fifty shades of Grey series (yum!)
*I read Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks
*I have started another novel.....
*Did our doctor appointments, sports physicals, etc
*My new niece was born (she is adorable by the way!)
*cleaned out our garage
