August has been a crazy month. We've got so much going on.
Last night we took our kids to their school orientation to meet their teachers and bring all of their school supplies to their respective classrooms. Desks were organized, lockers were set up (my oldest has now graduated to the upstairs of the school, complete with lockers!), and friends and teachers were greeted. It was an exciting and hectic night. The kids are now ready to go back to school. I, on the other hand, am not ready for them to go.
Only one weekend left of summer and it will be jam packed with fun. We still have our county fair to go to. An annual event that is talked about and anticipated year round. And we have yet another wedding to go to on Sunday. This will be the first wedding all of our children will be attending with us. I am so excited for them. Weddings are just so much fun and I remember having such a blast when I was a kid, dancing with the cousins, eating cake. It will be a fun one.
The entire month of August seems to have been dedicated to weddings. Each weekend there has either been a bridal shower or a wedding. This past weekend Grace and I attended my cousin's (first cousin, once removed- thanks for the lesson, Hilary!) bridal shower. It was a gorgeous shower in a garden on a beautiful day.
as you know. Give it a little while and I will probably be a redhead next. Or maybe black hair. Dark brown? Who knows.
Hopefully I will be able to fit in some good, solid relaxation into these next few days, because once school hits so does the serious busy-craziness. Football, swimming, boy scouts, meetings, schedules, homework. It is a good thing that my kids (and I) love their school so much, otherwise I'd probably force them to stay home with me for some homeschooling. Ha!
How are y'all handling the back to school craziness?
