At the beginning of the summer I thought, "I had better keep my kids busy or they're going to sit in front of the TV and then we'll wonder where the summer went." So I scheduled stuff, like Science Camp, swim lessons, picnics at the park, and summer movies to keep them entertained. Plus there's been family reunions and neighborhood parties. Jeremiah's been busy with his new calling as Young Men's president and I've tried to help with different organizations as well.

Now it is almost August, the stores are having "Back to School" sales with lists for each school at the front of the store and I'm still left wondering where the summer has gone. The days are longer but it seems like there's never enough time to do the things we need to do, let alone the things we want to do. We haven't even taken a weekend jaunt this summer. I had big plans to take bike rides in the mornings but when the kids "can't sleep" until after 11:00 most nights I'm more exhausted the next morning than I was when I finally got to bed.

Anyway, not sure what my point is. I'm going to eat my lasagna.

"I'm waffling between changing my favorite color from green to blue."


"I think you and Dad are the first and second nicest people in the world. You first, Dad second. Well, maybe Dad's fifth. You know why? Farting around other people - he does that."
