...that's what I've become to think of my blog. Someone I rarely talk to, but start right where we left off.
It was our first traditional summer vacation, and I loved every second of it!! Even with summer school for five weeks, we had plenty of time to relax. I can't say I was thrilled that Matthew had to attend summer school, but it really was the best thing for him. Not only did he bring his grades up, but he got used to the middle school campus, and come the first day of school, he wasn't nervous at all! It did help that his hero, Greg Heffley, is also in middle school; and Matt would get a locker, which apparently was the secret to his academic happiness.
The other huge adjustment has been dealing with a toddler in the house. I can't believe it's been a year since we've moved, and since then we've gone from having a cuddly baby to a runaway toddler!
As of July she's finally walking (actually, running), and I've never been so thrilled to see one of my children start walking! Despite having to overcome some challenges with her BCF, it's actually nice to have a baby start walking when they already understand basic one-step instructions.
In the last few months we've gained another member of the family (more on that later...), and my creative endeavors have turned to cooking! Everyone under my roof shuddered a little bit, but most have been supportive, and I'm please with my success so far.....
