It's AUGUST!!! What in the world has happened to the summer! It feels like it is winding down already and I am not happy about it. I know it is coming to an end because the number of emails I'm getting from the school district has skyrocketed. It's like the staff has had to come back to work and they are making up for two months worth of lost communication all at once. Literally I had 10 messages in my inbox from District 20. The funny thing about it is that about 1 in 3 of the emails is a correction to a previous email. I have no idea how to keep it all straight. All I know is that the girls have registration sometime around the end of the second week of the month, and school starts about a week after that. Wow! I am not a great parent when it comes to school and schedules. No one will ask me to be on the PTA.
But this month is going to be pretty awesome. Audrey and I are going to Aspen and Emma and I are going to Winter Park. I am so excited to get one on one time with my girls! It is great to have these trips to look forward to.
Are you like that? Does having something to look forward to give you a little psychological boost?
Totally off topic: My mom and I have made it a challenge to cook as little indoors as possible. There is no air conditioning in our house so we try to do everything on the grill outside. It has a burner on it so we can even cook side dishes out there. Last night when we were adding it up it came out that we cooked 5 of our last 7 meals outdoors. So I do the grilling and my mom takes care of the rest. I set the table and get the drinks put on and the girls usually play some role in getting the table ready for dinner. But it is seriously a well-oiled machine. Pretty cool! And we keep the house cool to boot.
I am ready for the weekend!
