This summer was going to be the summer that would drag on. We had no plans to go anywhere, much to our kids’ dismay. Only day trips and park visits and soccer.

But the summer has moved fast. Soccer on the weekends and twice during the week made the weeks blur together with no real end or beginning. The kids, or at least 3/4’s of them actually did what they were tokd and played with their toys. Not just for five minutes, but for five hours. The other 1/4 is a work in progress.

The only failing point from my perspective is not getting more done to fix up the house. The siding still needs a coat of paint, the front door hasn’t been replaced and I still need to put the new baseboards into the oldests room.

Still summer is almost over. With all of the things I didn’t get done this summer, I’ll be very busy this fall.
