What happened to August??

I guess it's more ~ what happened IN August. The kids went back to school, soccer practice started, PTO is back in action... I've gotten volunteered to be on the committee for the annual neighborhood get together .. field trips already taken, open house at both schools, babies born, quilts to finish... you get the picture!

Thanks to all of you who have written to ask me if I was okay. You've brought me back to reality and I'm trying to get my "act" together. I'm fine, just a bit crazy busy. Trying to get used to the new schedules around here. The kids are in two different schools this year so while Julianne is still right around the corner where school starts at 7:45 and she gets home at 2:30, Nate is in middle school (7th grade!) and takes the bus. School for him starts at 9:30 and he gets home about 4:45. He has opted out of PE for this year which he can do since he plays fall soccer and spring baseball. Soccer practice is 6 ~ 8 twice a week and on those days it's all he can do to get his chores done, eat dinner and do his homework. We are learning to utilize his morning time to get some things done. He is also in band which means bringing his instrument (saxophone) to and from school or calling me in a panic cause he's forgotten it and I need to bring it to school. It's only happened once but it was unfortunately on a day when the school bus broke down and I (along with two other moms) brought all the kids from our bus stop to school.

Anyway.. I promise to be better. I have been doing some sewing which has been fun and I'll be showing some of that as well. For now, since I don't like posts without pictures.. Here's one of our very talented middle schooler DSC07105 It's his new tongue trick ~ aren't you impressed?

Life (work) is getting busier for me, too...so I can sorta kinda relate. I hope you get lots of time to relax this Labor Day weekend! :)
