kicking and screaming
I can't quite put my finger on it but this summer, didn't really feel like summer. It kind of slipped away from me in a way it never has before. Some of it, surely, was the fact that the weather kind of sucked. I like heat and this summer didn't provide that in a way that satisfied. What it did provide, in excess, was rain, multiple hail storms, and a lot of branches to pick up. I had a kid that decided to embrace sleeping in and that robbed us of the early morning park trips we've loved so much in the past. My eldest heading to middle school surely contributed to the malaise as well.
I usually embrace fall and the return to school and schedule but this year, fall is going to have to drag me kicking and screaming. We're a week into the school year and I'm still finding my footing. It will come...just more haltingly than in years past.
I have been having some fun doing a little scrapping recently. I've got the itch again but the time to scratch it comes in fits and starts.
Izzy celebrated a birthday.
As did Zack.
Jake did too (just two days ago, as a matter of fact) but that one hasn't been commemorated just yet.
This girl is something else.
