Summer in Retrospect

Summer is officially finished. No more long, lazy days spent chilling out and relaxing ("chillaxing" as my son now says). Having spent a well-planned morning to make the bus on time, schedules have already taken over. It's not all bad. There's Cub Scouts to look forward to (if I can convince him to do it), Halloween, Christmas vacation...

Aw, who am I kidding? I miss him already! Good thing I have my baby at home.

Anyway, here's where we stand, the summer in retrospect:

# of ears of corn growing in the garden: 4

# of sunflowers blooming: 5

# of weeks we washed the car as per my plan to wash the car every week: 1

# of times we tie-dyed as per my plan to introduce my son to the joys of tie-dyeing: 0

# of weeks we had to make an extra trip to the grocery store because we just can't keep food in this house with two growing boys: 11

# of movies seen at the drive-in: 1

# parties attended: 4

# of times I forgot what day it was: 4 or 5 - I actually can't remember.

We did it!
