the blog has been more quiet than usual this summer but I wanted to fill you in a little bit on what’s been going on in these parts.
I’m sure you have picked up on this, but we put in a pool! It was finally finished at the beginning of June so we’ve been enjoying it all summer long. I plan to do a separate post with lots of before, during, and after pictures, so stay tuned.
This summer, work has been insanely busy. On top of that, I taught a class for six weeks for my third summer semester. While challenging, it was a great learning experience for me. In the midst of all the craziness, I was glad to see the six weeks come to an end when they did. I am already looking forward to teaching the class again next summer and implementing some new ideas.
Since this summer has been such a whirlwind, I have gotten really behind on my blog reading and our house projects have come to a complete stop. I am missing both. I am in desperate need of some inspiration, creativity, and a new project. I have a couple projects in mind and we have slowly begun talking about some things we want to do to the house, so I am excited about that. I am planning to carve out some time for blogging myself, as well as reading my favorite blogs too. Speaking of being creative, we’ve got a couple birthdays coming up, so I’m already thinking about fun party planning ideas!
The kids went to the same school for summer camp since school ended at the beginning to June. They had last week off and got to spend some time at home with me, Greg, and Meemaw since she was so nice to come down to help out. We are looking forward to this school year as they both are new in classes with new teachers. We are looking forward to getting back into our normal routine which started this week! The kids started school on Monday donning their adorable school uniforms and they weren’t the only ones. I am taking a graduate course this fall online and have been tossing around the idea of going back to school. I’m super excited about the class and am really looking forward to being a student again.
I think that pretty much catches us up to the present tense. Fall is underway (you know, since I live my life by what semester it is) and we are looking forward to lots of fun things happening between now and the end of the year. I promise I’ll get back on my blogging game here soon.
