Summer 2009

June was blessedly cool. July was amazing! August dragged, and dragged....

Here are some summer highlights -

6:00 AM, 3 days a week, I got to swim laps here. Life is sweet.

Every morning we had jobs, homework, scripture study and a mandatory "I love you Mom". Snow cones make wonderful rewards.

We did A LOT of yardwork this summer. We're getting there....slowly.

Finally had a chance to read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Camping, parades, demolition derbys, fish and cousins.

Learning that building a food storage is A LOT more physical work than it first appears.

And dreaming big. Very big :)

Love the picture of the boys with the cheerleaders. :)

I had great ambitions of scheduling daily chores, homework, etc. this last summer. I'm thinking that instead of daily, they occured bi-weekly. Hopefully next summer will be better.

Looks like lots of fun. The last picture cracks me up. The grin that they both have is priceless!

I love this post. What a great summer, huh! You never cease to amaze me with how much stuff you get done and do. Do you sleep?

Sounds like a fabulous summer! Crazy that it's drawing to a close. But, it's so fun to read about all you're doing and I'm jealous of the pool and biking. Glad you're fitting in all the fun.
