I can’t believe that summer is almost over and I haven’t posted since …April! Yeesh. So I guess this is “My Summer in Review”.
We started off with Kid 1 graduation from high school. Homeschool high school actually. Which means I was the main teacher. And I must say, I am pretty proud of Kid 1. She applied to nine good colleges. She got into eight. She wisely choose the one that she could do with minimal or no debt. Lucky for me it is only 40 min from home. Yippee!
We were lucky enough to have some far away family come visit. Four generations right here!
We currently are in final count down until she moves to college. Gasp. Sniffle….Wail! No really, I will be ok. 🙂
This summer we went camping.
Did a little reading.
Went to the 4-H fair and watched some Demo Derby.
A significant portion of our summer was spend in preparation for the play “Sound of Music”. Kid 2 was a nun among other things.
As you can tell, they had a blast.
There was shopping for college dorms…
Training a new quilter…
And of course some quilting on my end…but that really is another post.
Oh yeah. One big event was I ran my first 5k!! I have never been a runner and truthfully I don’t like it much. I decided I needed to get into shape and chose running. My goal was to run in a “Glow Run”. Basically a lot of glow in the dark paint, foam pits, colored water and powder. All at night! I am very proud of myself! I ran the whole way and had a blast!
All in all a very busy and fulfilling summer. I am sad to see it end next week. 😦 School will be starting up. The weather is hot and muggy today, but already some of the trees are changing color. Life will be different here with just one kid at home. I am looking forward to our time together. Some new classes, maybe a bit more running, of course some quilting. 🙂
Yep it was a good summer.
