These guys were hanging out in our front yard one evening. It is unusual to see so many bucks together.
In my last post, I mentioned my summer “unscheduling,” but did not realize exactly how unscheduled I was about to become in terms of my blog.
Part of my blogging absence has been having too much to do in my “real” life.
We are making good use of the library.
The girls had a dance recital.
There is no shortage of tasks to be done in the garden.
Inside as well, everything is getting a thorough scrub. Here: I am setting off an explosion of OxyClean on my stairs.
In the middle of all this activity, life happens too, including a sudden blackout for about 7 hours one evening. We were grateful for the crank-flashlights that never run out of batteries.
June was also a time of many celebrations. We celebrated Father’s Day. . .
We celebrated birthdays with our friends.
. . . and we celebrated our wedding anniversary (complete with fireworks provided by an exceptionally timed early 4th of July celebration in our county).
In addition, we finished up the required subjects for our homeschool curriculum and administered standardized tests and are beginning some home improvement planning as well.
What a month! I can’t believe it is July already! This summer “vacation” business is hard work!
Hope you are enjoying your summer so far! Thanks for indulging me in a much-needed break.
