Summer Craze!

The semester is winding down and there's a bit of craziness with a few deadlines. Anyway- I just wanted to take a minute to write a bit about LIFE!

We're enjoying a little bit of early harvest from our garden! Zucchini, sun-sugar tomatoes, peas, and peppers. Crook neck squash should be ready in a day or two, and there are lots of tomatoes ripening up here soon. We've had a few little varments enjoying their OWN harvest whenever they want to, but I'll take an occasional gopher nuisance over last year's grasshopper plague any old day! Buttered zucchini and sun-sugar tomatoes fresh out of the garden... YUM! THAT'S what summer tastes like!

We went to the Ute Stampede Mammoth Parade and Carnival a few weeks back and met up with Charloe and her little family. It was so fun! The kids had a ball and Kamden only went a-wol ONCE this year! ☺!Boston had fun riding big kid rides with Parker and Kip. She even took Kamden on the zipper once, which he LOVED!

Daycare, vinyl, writing assignments, and tests are keeping life crazy crazy crazy! I hired Boston to help with housework for an hour a day to help her earn money for her trip to DC next summer and to help me not go insane! It's worked out pretty well so far! She's learning a lot about responsibility and that's been good for us both! I don't know what I'll do when Dave isn't home all summer to help with kids and housework, too! It's been nice to be able to share the responsibilities of this crazy house around a bit!

I SHOULD have all A or A- grades! Hoping I can hold my own the same way next semester! Today's to do list includes writing 2 papers, about $200 worth of vinyl, and preparing for a test. Could be a beast!
