Lazy Days of Summer?

Whoever coined that phrase did not have children!

We're only 1 1/2 weeks into our summer schedule, and I'm exhausted!  Mostly because I spent all last week getting ready for the used book sale I participated in Monday at our local Home School Building.  It's a huge sale; approximately 200 tables worth of used books and curriculum set up in the gym.  It was hot, crowded, and rather mind-boggling at times, but I did sell a lot and made some money to use for next year's curriculum. 

In regards to my summer goals, I accomplished 2 out of 3 last week.  My first area of cleaning and organizing was our homeschool books, which was mostly accomplished before the book sale.  But I still have this past year's things to put away.  Also, I exercised 6 times! Two of those days I walked first thing in the morning - something that hasn't worked for me in the past.  It sure feels good to cross that off the list so early in the day!

This week I'm way behind due to the book sale and other various appointments and scheduled events.  Hopefully I'll be back in the game next week.  Oh, yeah, then family is coming.  Well, maybe the week after that?!

The kids are certainly enjoying their summer!

Chris - awesome awesome on the exercise and organizing your homeschool books! Yahoo!!! That had to feel great! So happy for you! :)

How beneficial for you (and everyone involved) to have that used books & curriculum sale! I'll have to mention that to my homeschool support group -- they have done a small-scale version of that sale in the past.

I had just checked your blog and thought to my self - it's about time she put a new posting in here!! Just came and checked - and bingo - here it is!!

Brandon can't wait to get up there!! We really had a bad storm last night. We were without power for about 12 hours!! That just never happens to our block. Lots and lots of trees and branches down all over the area.

Hopefully we won't tire you out too much when we come up. Looking forward to it, too. Aaron looks like he is having a really good time!
