The first week and a half of summer vacation has been called "the worst summer ever" by nearly every kid in the house. Not sure when I became Julie McCoy...
If you ask me, the summer is going just fine. In the past week we have visited the library, started journals, played miniature golf, went to the pool, visited 4 different walking paths for our morning outings/exercise, played family kickball, went to the playground, hosted 43 of our friends here for the rosary, slept late, finished up baseball season, ate ice cream and popsicles, each made dinner, cuddled a LOT, and watched movies.
Isn't it funny how they only see the time in between all of these things and claim they're bored.
**On a different note, Billy got his stitches removed and his nose looks pretty good. I'm very grateful for that.

**Mary Kate made the Silks, meaning she will be in Band Front next year as one of the flag carriers/twirlers. All year I was rejoicing that she was only in Orchestra because Band seemed to be more of a commitment with parades and such. Wouldn't you know she wanted to try out for Silks and made it. Way to be ambitious Mare; you are your father's daughter, for sure!
**Still on the fence about Matthew and Kindergarten. He is a July birthday and his preschool teachers think he would benefit with a second year of preschool. Long story short, he can be insecure and shy, but I'm not sure that will ever go away. (I was/am like that) and his fine motor skills are lacking. On the flip side, he knows a lot of sight words, is interested in math, and says he'd be bored in preschool. Advice? Anyone? Bueller?
**It took me 13 years....
