Since we have no kids, I feel like a lazy slug compared with you parents who are keeping up with the beginning of another school year. We're busy in our own way, but not with the dawn-to-dusk job of raising children. Caring, engaged parents and grandparents are super-people---congratulations to you all!

I've been working on this year's YuleTube clips, planning a Christmas afghan, and wondering when the Christmas cards will come out at the Christmas Tree Shop so I can get an early start. Yep, it's August, all right! A couple weeks ago I started building a new Christmas library on iTunes so I can sync it up as soon as the season arrives (for me, that's usually right after Halloween---until then I listen to some Christmas music here and there, but after Halloween it's all Christmas music).
What exactly is the YuleTube? I feel like I have heard the term on here before but can't remember. Is it something related to MMC or is it a personal project? That afghan you made for charity was amazing, I cannot sew/crochet/stitch to save my life. I always admire people who can.

It's hot & humid down here, so humid you can feel the moisture in the air. Yuck! But we go back to the water park tomorrow evening, so that should be fun.

I hope y'all have a great day!
I hope the weather holds out for you guys and you're able to have lots of fun!

We have also been scheduling some doctor and dentist appointments. My youngest took her senior portraits a few days ago. I have also been working on financial aid applications for my two oldest. I am having some problems with that, and I am getting frustrated. And to top it off we are still having internet problems, we keep losing the connection. It also affects my phone. I could be in the middle of a conversation and then I lose the call. I have another technician coming to the house today to see if he could figure it out.
Other than that we are well. I am just completely sleep deprived and exhausted. I am looking forward to the start of the school year. I am looking forward to the girls being in early on school nights and me being able to get some sleep!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
I hope things start to slow down for you soon - you're such a wonderful woman! I don't know how you do it all!

Hahaha!! We still love ya!! That crazy camel is sneaky

As far as orientation, it was okay, kind of boring. I had to go through the same session last year for her, for preschool. They do the preschool and Pre-K classes together, since they're no that much different, so I learned a lot of the info already. The only thing knew was the school calendar, the field trips, etc. EA's actual orientation with us isn't until Sept. 14th, so that will be something to look forward to with her.

Thank you Snow, that is kind of you to say. School re opens on Sep 04th! I can't believe it's almost over to be honest!



Sounds like a great plan, have a wonderful lunch with your family! What are you doing this weekend?



I am very sorry to hear your parents are not well. I hope you get to go to the beach, I am sure you will treasure these memories.

Wow senior year, I bet you feel like it was only yesterday he was little! I sure know what you mean about turning back the clocks.

Weird weather every where this year. I hope the rain lessens up where you are. Have a lovely weekend.



Ahhhhhh so that's where my sombrero went to.........
We plan to go to a local festival called "Festival of the pines" for the first time =]
It's supposed to be pretty amazing! It's an arts/crafts fair, food vendors, entertainment, etc. Family event!

Your weekend sounds great, too!! Enjoy!!

xx
