Another year has come and gone and I am left here wondering where it went. My clock just seems to be speeding up faster and faster and I can't slow it down. This is a bittersweet year. My Little girl is growing up. This is her last year in Elementary and I am sad the time has gone by to fast. She is sad that it is her last year too, she definitely does not get that from me (I was always ready to move on to bigger and better things, or older boys ;) As you can see by the pictures we had terrible lighting, I was in a hurry, and kids or Noah who just wanted to be silly in all the pictures. They were both so excited that they got little sleep, which means once again so did I. I know they will both have a good year, they both have great teachers. Harley is hoping for less drama and Noah is just ready to be awesome at math some more. So here we go on another adventure in our life, and a last adventure of Elementary for Harley. I have to stop now or I might cry because my kids are growing up WAY TO FAST!!!
So I am finally starting this new scrapbooking challenge that I have thought about for years. I saw on a scrapbooking show Stacy Julian talking about how she carried around her camera to capture 12 things on the 12th of every month. I thought that it would be a fun way to capture my everyday life. Now being my anal self, I thought I had to start in January because it would just flow better, you can't possibly start in middle of the year!! But for the past two years it has slipped my mind to start. So I decided to go a little crazy and start in August. It has captured one of our last lazy days before school starts Enjoy!!
Scott and I hanging out and watching TV
This kids in their pj's playing DS all morning
The DAILY chore of making up the messy bed
What my desk looks like while I finish orders (I have a lot to do today)
Some of the flowers I am finishing up
Noah my bottomless pit- because who can eat just one yogurt, I need Three
Harley eating cold pizza and still not dressed at 3 in the afternoon
The kids cleaning up to get to go to Connie Mack
Noah thinking he needs to pose for EVERY picture
Making Harley hash browns at 1 in the afternoon, I think she is getting all she can because she will have to wait for the weekends
Scott sneaking a nap after work (the kids took this while I ran errands)
Enjoying the game at Connie Mack, or is it the treats???
And that sums up our day on the 12th. Hopefully I remember to do it next month. Stay tuned to see if I'm a success or failure!?!
I am full of good intentions of getting things done and never get to it. That is my life, but I guess I figure there will be time later and this summer is no exception. I have been meaning to get caught up on blogging, but we all know I won't. I have just been trying to enjoy the short lived time with the kids home and no extra activities to make me even more crazy. I had planned on having a relaxed summer and getting on top of things around the house, needless to say that did not happen. Since I doubt I will ever getting to blogging about all that we did for our "low key" summer, I decided to make a list
-Scott's Tri in Price (come home injured)
-Girl's week in Purgatory,day after getting home, and really only a few days :(
-Turn around head to Idaho
-Stop and get a new Wedding Ring :)
-Baptism for Chloe
-Baby Blessing for Seth
-Watching Scott and Richard dual with Roman Candles (a riot)
-Swim, Swim and Swim some more
-Catching a cold
-Play with friends
-Head to Nana's for a week
-Back to school shopping
-Scott's tri in Durango
It has been a crazy busy summer and that is the way I like it. I could have cleaned my house, but let's face it the mess will stay there. My kids are growing up way too fast and will be gone before I know it. I may regret the mess at home for a moment, but I will cherish the memories with my kids forever. And even though I badly need a break, I appreciate every moment I get to spend with my kids.
