Go Away Fall

All of the boys attended/worked VBS (Vacation Bible School) this week which always make me feel like Fall is knocking on our door. Go away Fall.

I don't want summer to leave. I haven't been to the beach once this summer which is wrong in every way. Maybe I could quit my job so that I can go to the beach every day in the month of August and be tan like all the other mommies.

Also, as I look back over the summer so far I feel guilty about not providing our children with an incredible summer. I get nervous when I think about that cliche writing assignment which is typically assigned the first week of school. "How I Spent my Summer Vacation." Unfortunately my children will have a very short paper. The paper will begin with "We did nothing" and end with "The End."

I cannot pinpoint why this summer was different from all of the others. Perhaps with two in high school and two in elementary school, arranging the day is tricky. That's my excuse.

Next year will be different. I hope.

How is your summer going so far?

Just remember...most of us grew up playing in the front yard and going swimming once in a while. Your SF trip sounded pretty fabulous.

Your very tan friend;)
