Summer is coming to a close





The good times are almost gone.

For some reason I am glad. Maybe because this week has consisted of (and it only gets worse) too much stuff. Three days of dancing workshops and auditions for Twinkle Toes. Three days of Soccer camp for the boys. Practice for the upcoming Rodeo that Twinkle Toes and her brothers will be in. Scouts. Church Activity. School shopping. And to top it all off it is our City Celebration week. There are activities every night and some in the day all of this week.

So, we did most of Twinkle Toes school shopping online (thank goodness), but I had to take the boys to get shoes. This was sooooo not fun. The mall+ a frazzled mom+ three boys= A even more frazzled mom. We did accomplish the task. New shoes for three boys, even though the youngest will not be in school this year, some pants, and some shirts. I also bought Twinkle Toes some shoes. Wrong size, what the heck. So I made 2 trips to the mall today with those boys. I do not like to shop for school. That is all there is too it.

The only good thing about school is that I get my sanity back. A schedule. I am sooooo much better when on a schedule. In these weeks before school I have been known to have panic attacks. I don't know why. Maybe my internal timer just knows that I cannot take anymore. I will be sad though. And who knows what I am to do with Monkey #3 when all the others are gone all day.

I think that you are living in fast forward and you need to rewind real slow!!! How in the heck are you ever going to have time to potty train stella if you are never home? I guess that is your problem so what am I worried about, OH the fact that in just a few I will be the mother of three under three and Nana V keeps telling me that it is going to be Hell.

I can not believe that it is time for school again already!!! Summers fly by so fast even when you are not in school. So I will be at the little buck-a-roo. Jakes cousins are going to be in it as well....can't wait to see all the kids!!! Look for me!!!

Um yeah. I took the kids shopping one time a few weeks ago and vowed NEVER to do that again. At least not with Ty-Ty. I was able get one outfit for him and then I wanted to SCREAM! Needless to say, I'm not finished:(

Maybe you and I should go to Hawaii or quilt market or something! I was just thinking about cascade springs the other day, and what a fun trip it would be.

My sanity comes back when school starts too! And I don't even have kids in school...unless you count my biggest kid!
