The Last Vestiges of Summer Vacation

Two weeks. It's all we have left, before school starts.

We've an out-of-town wedding to attend (and family to see). A float trip, riding and rowing, sweltering and splashing. Vacation church school, which my husband and I are spearheading (ack!). And, hopefully, a day we can squeeze in the state fair, which has become a tradition with our kids.

There are dinners at which to gather, and things to bake and prepare, shopping to do. Swims in the pool before it's too late, lake waters to float upon, games to play, books to read, before summertime sets.

Two weeks.

I'll be back August 18th or so...

Enjoy the coming weeks. And then time for the most wonderful time of the year.

Don't I have a beautiful singing voice? ;)

BTW: I avoided VBS duty big time. Good luck to you.

Sounds busy! And much more fun that what I have coming up -- finals, and graduation, and driving cross-country (again) to finally move!

Angie Muresan said...

Enjoy these last two weeks, Janna. I'm looking forward to the start of the school year, although I am a little nervous. My son will be going to a traditional school instead of homeschooling, and I'm worried that he might feel a little lonely for a few days.

Ack don't remind me. 3ft is starting kindergarten. My first baby is leaving me to be a grown up!

What a lot of activities to squeeze into your remaining holiday time! But it all sounds like fun. Enjoy! School here doesn't resume until September 7th so we still have a few weeks to relax.
