Summer begs for relaxation. Outside adventures and spontaneous trips, followed by catnaps and relaxing. Somehow half the summer is gone already (although Dave is just now joining summer-in-progress, since yesterday was his last day of summer school) . . . and my motivation for anything that requires mental energy is slim. I have fleeting thoughts of things to write about, but then I see a sprinkler or an ice cream cone and they slip right out of my head.
I thought to myself "I feel like I slack on blogging every summer", which prompted me to go back in the archives to last summer around this time, and I saw this post*. Oh my goodness! Maya is so little! Parker is so little! My family is getting so big (literally)---just a year has made a huge difference. Slow down, everyone.
The highlight of this past week was cancelling therapy for a day and running away to CT to visit Maya's cousins.
A playhouse + play doh?!? I don't even know where to start.
We caught little toads! I think I may have been even more excited than Maya :)
Anyway, sorry for the potentially longer stretches between posts. I'll try to get my act together. And September brings school (for Maya) and unemployment (for me) so I should have plenty of free time to write then.
*PS-My favorite part of that post is in the comments--I love the comment by Anonymous: "Dana, you are definitely starting to get funnier." Thanks? I think?
