Where Has The Summer Gone

I didn’t mean to take most of the summer off from blogging but I guess life happens and blogging got put on the back burner. This summer has gone by faster than most and I can’t believe fall is in just a little over a month. I am so ready:) So what have we been up to this summer? We have been sick A LOT!!!! I was sick for a month but two rounds of antibiotics and lots of homemade chicken stock and I am finally better. Both girls have been sick off and on as well and Chris has got another cold. I am not sure what is going on but I am praying that the worst of it is over!!! We did manage to do fun stuff as well.

Ellie went to sleep away camp for a 1/2 week and she loved it!!!! What is not to love about 3 nights and 4 days of swimming, lake activities, games, horseback riding, camp fires and the list goes on and on. She can’t wait to go back next year.

Both girls took swim lessons and got to go to music camp. Ellie was so excited because she had a speaking part and got to sing a duet.

We went on a family camping trip to one of the Jellystone Parks (Yogi Bear Campground) and had a blast! It was the first time we camped for 2 nights. There was so much to do at the campground and there was a creek right by our camp site that the girls had fun playing in. DSC02703 DSC02749 DSC02767 DSC02779

That about wraps it up. We are starting school on Labor Day so I have spent the last few weeks tweaking our school room and put the finishing touches on our curriculum. I will be posting about school and our school room soon!

Glad you are blogging again but sorry to hear you guys have been sick a lot. Yes, summer did pass fast but I like it better than winter, from a truck drivers point of view'The girls sure are lucky to have parents like you guys. They get to do such fun things. That's what wrong with my life now, I didn't have any fun as a child.Well, you just keep on blogging and we will keep on reading as we enjoy it very much. Love you, Dad & Naomi
