Where did my summer go?

So, I was reminded that I had not blogged in months by one of the sweet college students in the Sunday School class that we lead. Bear with me if this post is somewhat meandering, but I am a little under the weather and I am on Sudafed, Claritin D and lots of pain reliever to try to make it through the day.  But, I committed that I would post something this week and I WILL do it.  Today.  No excuses.

Where did my summer go?  I am telling you, I LOVE me some summertime!  I love letting the kids sleep in (some days).  I cherish the days that the kids get to stay in their pajamas all day long.  I love the movies, the extra snuggles, the lack of homework, the fact that the sun is still up when the kids go to bed, the laid-back days and evenings.  But, this summer has ZOOMED by.  I guess time does fly when you are having fun.  If so, I must have had a wonderful summer.

I shall try to recap our summer in one paragraph:  Las Vegas, KidQuest, bathroom renovations, singing National Anthem at Astros game, iPhone 4, SKYROCKET!, Galveston, barbecue, working weddings, Austin, Lake Livingston, Bach to Broadway, South Pacific. Doesn’t look like a lot but it sure felt like it.  Now begins the cramming…trying to squeeze in the last few things on our to do list before the summer is over. We hope to hit Galveston one more time when we can actually see some sunshine, go to Space Center Houston’s Clone Wars exhibit, do Ty’s “summer homework” and host Lily’s 4th birthday party.  I know at least one of those will happen no matter what…ha!

In closing, I am including a few more of my favorite pictures of the summer.  Enjoy!

Happy Summer, everyone.
