Crazy Days of Summer

Oh summer! Whatever happened to the concept of lazy days? That’s certainly not the way it is around here lately. My poor, neglected blog is really suffering. Yes, I refuse to give it up. Nope, not happening. I just need to make it a priority to blog a few times a week. I would love to do daily posts, but I am not sure I can realistically commit to that.

I get so annoyed with Facebook, but because part of my job is maintaining social media, I’m on it several times a day because I have to be, so I end up posting there instead of here. I’d love to move away from that.

So. Anyway. What’s been going on? Lots. Really, I feel like life is just going from one thing to the next and at the end of the day I’m exhausted! So here’s a quick & dirty update

The boys just got back from various BSA camping activities. Drew and Noah headed off to camp in the Adirondacks, and Jake went with a group of the older scouts on a canoe trip along the St. Croix River on the Maine/Canada border. It was such and amazing experience for him! Four days of paddling and camping — lots of excitement, stories, and memories that will last a lifetime. The troop also hit Acadia National Park and now I have it on my list of places I want to go. Maybe for a family vacation in a year or two. Laura has been enjoying a local rec camp — just good old-fashioned fun: swimming in the pond, playing on the playgroup, arts & crafts, reading, games, spending time with friends. It’s just up the road from work, so it’s incredibly convenient for me, too!

Speaking of work, it’s good as well. I’m really busy with summer programs and sometimes it makes me crazy, but it’s all good.

Atlanticus CAL through part 4
I’ve joined in with the Atlanticus CAL. I’m about four parts behind, but there’s no rush to finish it. The pattern is written by Vanessa Smith and it is such a joy to work on! I love the different stitches. It’s going to be huge and heavy, which is going to be wonderful when winter gets here!

I’m going to try, really try to get back into it here, friends. I miss documenting my days and posting photos. Feel free to give me a prod if I go too long!
