Can you believe that summer is on the downward spiral? It feels like summer came and went for us this year. I think that is mostly because we had so much going on at the beginning of the summer. Our oldest graduated high school, we had family come visit, and we went to Florida for a week.
Our next big thing is moving…again! Packing our house and settling all the lose ends here will definitely fill the rest of our month with madness. Schools in Florida start earlier than Texas, so my kids are counting down the next month.
They have hit that summer slump of being bored. I may need to put them to work in the kitchen making some Nutella no bake cookies and cleaning up after. Haha! I think they would quickly become un-bored if I suggest
Even in the middle of all the busy and crazy, we are trying to enjoy some down time. This past weekend, we had a bonfire in our backyard since it was cooler after the sun went down. I thought the smoke from the fire and the citronella candle would keep the bugs away, but within ten minutes had welts all over my legs.
They must have been mutant mosquitos from all the rain we have had lately because some of the welts were huge. Apparently I am a bug magnet because any time we are outside after dark, I get attacked.
My hubby usually tries to tell me I am crazy because he doesn’t get any bites. But he couldn’t argue with the evidence this time. We headed inside pretty quickly!
