Fine time for summer to show up - and show up it did! To make the most of it, we had 3 teammates from E's basketball team up. Now most would shiver at the thought of 4 13 year olds in a small cottage, but I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed their company. We had a lot of laughs (who knew Annika was such a comedian?) and a lot of food! The weather couldn't have been better! Arrivaderci Summer Holidays!
Now that it has begun, it no sooner ends: summer. The kids are excited about school, but mom is not. The weather has finally cooperated and, for me, summer ends next week. Back to work I go and back to school go the kids (in 2 weeks) and all the organizing and shopping that goes with it.
But with September, comes Anna's wedding to Thomas, Sarah's bambino arrives (knitting almost done) and my eldest baby turns 19!!!!!!!! Agggghhhhhh! Rep basketball try-outs, book club and almost as many new beginnings as Spring would bring.
Came home for a day to cook lasagna and escape the rain, while Lou picks up his MRI cd. The days of summer are ticking away and soon we'll be trudging through the white stuff. I did get my postcard from CSNF in Toronto and my sis Carol wants to go. Another thing to look forward to (did I just talk myself out of missing summer????Naaaaa!)
