Goodbye summer :(

Summer is over for us, today was our first day at our homeschool co-op. Tomorrow will be our first day of school at home. The boys are in 6th and 2nd grade. How did that happen?

This summer we have.....

  • Gone to Moody Gardens and the beach in Galveston.

  • Visited the Children's Museum in Houston.

  • Gone to Dallas and experienced Legoland Discovery Center.

  • Been taken on a trip to San Antonio by my generous parents and went to Sea World, the Alamo, the Japanese Tea Gardens, the Children's Museum of San Antonio, the Mercado, rode a trolley, bus, and boat in San Antonio, and had the most delicious meal on the Riverwalk.

  • Found 6 abandoned kittens in San Antonio. My mom took two and I took home four. Found new homes for all four within one week.

  • Witnessed hubby getting laid off and then starting a new job with a much better salary all within three weeks.

  • Started painting my entire kitchen. Cabinets, walls, everything. Still have not completed it. Ugh.

  • Been to Goodwill way more than my kids want to.

  • Taken two summer courses at Lamar Universtiy and *barely* received an A in both.

  • Watched Falling Skies on television.

  • Read a lot of books for fun.

  • Planned out my classes I teach at our homeschool co-op.

  • Made ten tie-dye shirts for the family.

  • Traveled to the library weekly.

I would love to blog about each of the above items, but not sure if I will get around to it.

Coming up I have....

  • Women of Faith conference I am attending this weekend with my sister. :)

  • College Algebra :( Not online, but in a live classroom. Not sure I am ready for this.

  • Three online college classes.

  • And a busy year of schooling the 2nd and 6th grader seen above.

Loving life.
