School starts back tomorrow.
I'm happy about that and sad all at the same time.
My 2 favorite days of the year are the first day of school and the last day of school.
While the kids are bummed that they are heading back, they are also excited to be seeing their friends, making new friends and getting back into routines.
Our summers are pretty laid back over here. We turn off the alarm clocks, rarely look at the calendar and just do whatever we feel like doing from each day to the next.
It seems like this summer flew by. It seems like it went faster than last summer, which also flew by.
So, here is a look back at all the things we did this summer:
We had chicken & waffles at Gladys Knight & Ron Winans restaurant
We shopped at IKEA and bought this light for the basement
We swam at the pool with friends.
We spent time shooting hoops
We traveled to South Carolina and saw cool water towers like this baseball one
and this peach one
I got new flip flops which are perfect for our high school spirit wear
We captured a snake in the basement.
Victoria and I got haircuts
We grilled in the rain.... especially during the entire month of July
We ate at Chick-fil-A... alot. Oh and hid from mom's camera
We tried our hand at fried pickles
We moved the bird feeders around in hopes of keeping the squirrels out. Didn't work!
We finished the ceiling in the den in the basement.
Well, almost; still need to add trim.
We traveled to Alabama and saw the Mini Statue of Liberty
We also took the kids to the Birmingham Museum of Art where they acted like they had never been out of the house with civilized people before :(
We went to baseball games
We went to softball games
We sent the oldest off to Afghanistan for the next several months.
We watched more softball
We took the trolly to the top of Stone Mountain
We skipped rocks in the lake
We played in the mini waterfall
We had putt-putt competitions
We visited the zoo and road the train
When I look back on it like that, seems we did lots of things.
It was a good summer and we are looking forward to what this school year holds.
