We are having a lazy day around here, apparently. It is 8:40 and Isaac is still in bed and Lillian and I are still in our jammies. The only thing that I have so far accomplished is making a pot of coffee and rescuing a few things from Miley the puppy that she thought would be fun to chew on. After we get a few chores done then we may go to the pool and continue in our laziness. But I may be too lazy even for that. This morning would be a great time to work on my knitting, but I am out of yarn until Saturday when I have class again. I do have some great pictures but I still can't find the cable to my camera. Not that I have looked very hard.

I thought this summer would be a nice respite for me. Mops, AWANA, and Wednesday night children services at church are all taking a break for the summer, so I thought it would mean that I would have a lot of down time. For some reason I have been running, running, running every day. I have never been so busy. We still have lots of Mops get togethers and a Bible study. Lillian still has school and I still have lots of errands. I am taking a nutrition class one day a week. Plus, it is summer time which mean a lot more trips to the park and other fun outings. All written down I guess it doesn't seem like much, but it has been a very busy summer.

A summer that is already almost over, really. I finally got Lillian enrolled in school for Pre-K this week. School for most of the kids here starts on August 6 and for her starts on August 11! Can you believe it! All of August is spent in school. When I was a kid and August rolled around that meant we still had a month left of summer. The added bonus to this is that the pools on post are closed since all the lifeguards (or lifegardens as Lillian calls them) are high school students.

So, we are going to try to enjoy the summer and the pool while it lasts. If we can stop being too lazy to even enjoy the lazy days of summer.

School in August? That is a travesty!
We get angry when school starts before Labor Day around here.

I can't believe school starts that early. The schools here start somewhere in the middle of August, which is weird to me. We always started the week after Labor Day where I grew up.

Our state fair doesn't even start until the second week of August, there would be no one to show at it if all the kids were in school!

I hope you are able to spend some time just relaxing and enjoying the warm days. I think the lazy thing is part of it all!
