Our Summer Schedule

It’s hard to believe that we are in the month of July! How did that happen?  All is well.  We are finally at the very end of our crazy schedule.  I am so behind on posting here on Lindsey’s Journey as life most definitely gets in the way sometimes, but I am finally back on and ready to move forward with plans for our summer adventures as well as our new school year which will be the middle/end of next month already. Phewww!

Sweet Pea (10) and Cup Cake (6.5) received their school promotion certificates.  I was debating on whether or not I would do this, but I wanted them to feel special and excited about moving forward to the next grade.  I tried uploading pics, but for some reason they failed on my phone, booo.  Jelly Bean (4) will be entering a private preschool in the fall.  It was the best decision for us at this time.  After preschool, I will pull her back into homeschooling for Kindergarten!

I want to share with you briefly the crafts we made for Father’s Day. Again, sorry so late with this.  We made special frames for daddy and the grandparents.  The inside of the frame is cut from our son’s original receiving blankets from the hospital.  Not the standard birth blankets, but one they gave us as a gift in memory of him.  (Brandon Michael Clair born and became an angel on 8/3/2005)  I had to think of a way to include him too.  He’s always in our hearts.  Both grandparents and daddy were deeply touched by the meaning of the gift.  It was very special.

This week is going to be a very crazy hectic week.  Monday I had jury duty, Tuesday eye doctor appointment for Cup Cake (6.5), Wednesday play date and lunch dates, Thursday Robot Garage event and meeting.  I think Friday we are free as birds.  I would like to start our summer adventures sometime this week, but it looks like it’s going to be the end of the week.  Hey, it’s okay, right?  I want to catch up on their piano theory learning as we are way behind on that as well. Feeling a little overwhelmed.  I guess it’s time to prioritize and get rid of what is hindering us.  Sometimes it is so hard to say no.  Who is with me on that one?  I need to learn to just say no.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer with your families thus far.  Any special plans?  We have a family vacation scheduled soon and can’t wait.  Even though we are only going up north to the cabin, I will take it.  Sometimes it’s just nice to get away, even if it’s only a few hours away.

Happy Summer!
