We didn’t going anywhere thrilling this summer. We didn’t move 8 hours away. But we did have 6 weeks where our kids were with grandparents in Oklahoma! Now most would think we lived it up and gallavanted around the town. Nope. We built a gargantuan deck, built a retaining wall, and put a pool in those 6 weeks. I’m still tired and dehydrated from it! 😄 For the record, it was HOT!!
But look at this “beaut” of a deck!
Before the kids came back my parents came down and visited for the weekend. It was their first time to see our land and now everything we are doing makes a lot more sense! Honestly, I think they came to keep us in check and make sure we were really working as hard as I claimed…. Lol
The day after they left Josh’s dad and stepmom came and returned the offspring. They stayed about a week and we explored Sunny San Leon and Galveston. Mostly we enjoyed being outside on our deck visiting!
After they left we did a lot of swimming, library visits, and began working in my classroom. Kellon spent a week entertaining my parents while Bre got the joy of being an only child. The day after he got home Josh’s mom flew in and stayed with the kids while I went back for my first week of school. So in a month’s time, we saw all the parents. Now that’s a good summer!
As I’m typing my children are snuggled in their beds and we are about to start this school year’s adventure!
Soon I won’t have a home that is so easily moved… I can’t wait to have a full sized washer and dryer and a bigger refrigerator!!!!!
