Happenings...

We've been having a great summer so far! Lots of outside time, time with friends, time with grandparents, and time for growing and learning. I've been busily planning the new school year that is approaching at break-neck speed, cleaning and organizing the house, buying school supplies and getting these kids in a good schedule. Evie is really coming along in her reading. I'm so excited! It's such a blessing to watch her grow and learn! We've also been getting used to just being a family of five. Allison works so much and Jon's been away at camp all week. What it's shown me is that I don't need the older kids' help, but it sure is nice to have it once in a while.LOL Here's some photos before the storm comes. It's getting noisy outside...

You are thinkabout the new school year already???? We don't finish ours here until the end of July!

I hope you weren't affected by the big storm you mentioned.

Dorothy's comment struck me funny because I too am already planning "next year" too. I forget that different areas have different summer breaks. I think we are "starting back" the third week of August, or maybe the final week. I suppose a lot depends on the weather. LOL

Anyway...cute pictures as always. You're very creative with the preschool rotations.
