The New Normal
So, I think that we just got a taste today of what our new normal is going to be like. Micah left this morning at 6:30 to get to school to study. He got home around 5:30 and spent some time with the boys. We ate dinner together, took a little walk, put the boys to bed around 7:30ish and Micah locked himself in the bedroom for more studying. I watched a movie and worked on some scrapping. I guess that I am going to have more time for scrapping which I will like, but I know that I am going to miss our time with him. He had his first anatomy lab today which is basically dissecting a cadaver and he found it extremely fascinating. No queasiness, but he really didn't want to talk about it over dinner! :)
I spent about an hour and a half weeding our garden which might give you a clue as to how bad it was. I am way too embarrassed to take the before and after pictures. I know that next year, we will do better. It has been a bit of an experiment this year and we did have a bit of an unusual summer. We are getting tiny little tomatoes and some decent sized peppers. We still have 2 cantaloupe that are growing, so I am looking forward to those. And if anyone has any ideas about how to not let your cantaloupe vines completely overtake your garden, I would love to hear them. I am trying to get some area cleared out so that I can plant another crop of lettuce and whatever else I can discover to be cooler weather plants. But, have I mentioned that I really don't love yard work...but it is a necessary evil.
Tomorrow, we are heading to storytime at the library which never ceases to completely wear me out! and I am trying to find my new schedule for the fall and I think that laundry day is going to be Tuesday. We also have our first small groups with the youth group tomorrow night. I am going to be leading a small group of 9th grade girls that I am eager to meet and Micah is still taking over his 11th-12th grade guys.
I have also been working on the boys Picture a Day project from their first year of life--yes, I know that they are practically 4, but better late than never right! I think that I have finally found a layout that I am going to be happy with and have finished the first page of each of their books. I will try to add them as I get them done. Can anyone give guesses on which page is which boy?
