Life has really gotten away from me lately. Don't get me wrong -I've enjoyed every minute of the bubbling chaos of my life, but it means I haven't been great about blogging. I think about what a great blog post this event or that one would make but time gets away from me and it doesn't happen.
We had an awesome summer! I think it's the busiest summer we've ever had. It went so quickly that I am REALLY not ready for it to be over. Yet, my children return to school tomorrow.
We enjoyed our trip to upstate New York. We enjoyed a family reunion in Island Park (hopefully I will blog more about that later). Alec spent 2 weeks at Camp Kostopulos (one of those was spent in Yellowstone). The girls enjoyed youth conference and girls' camp and cross-country high-altitude camp. Chandler played in 2 soccer tournaments. I enjoyed Education Week at BYU. I put on a 5K race for the PTA that went well. I also "catered" a wedding lunch with help from dear friends.
I don't look forward to my children returning to school tomorrow but next week looks much calmer. I am hoping I can rest my weary body a bit. I also look forward to trying to get my home back into shape. I have cupboards just begging to be cleaned and organized. I am sure it will be a week or two before I am needed as a substitute so I hope I can get my home and garden under control in the meantime.
