The 4th and Moving on

Our 4th of July was a lot of fun this year! We went to Jewett, Texas to visit my parents and see lots of family. I met my niece, Jacalynn, for the first time, too. Everyone on the roster: Grammy, Papa, Aunt Lulu, Uncle Kieth, James,Ronda, Cheyenne, Justin, Paris, Uncle Rusty, Uncle Chuck, Aunt Debbie, Courtney, Hailey, Bubba, Jimbo, Rita, Jacalynn, and Alisha. It was a full house. We stayed up late, flipped through old photo albums, talked about old stories, and caught up on our lives now. It rained most of the weekend, so most of the time was spent indoors. We did eventually make it out to the lake for a peep at the beautiful scenery!

I am done with summer. Unfortunately, I live in Houston, Texas. This means that I still have several months of not only hot, but very sticky weather left! We have been pretty lucky this summer, it has been raining A LOT! Even though the hotness hasn't been that bad, I am ready to move on to the fall. The fall is, after all, my most favorite season. So, even though Houston's weather will not catch up with me until much later, I am moving on to the fall. Homeschooling is on my radar, I am getting geared up by getting things organized! There is a homeschooling conference at the end of July, I know what curriculum I am using, and I know what I want to do in the house to make it more HSing friendly.  There is lots to do, and much to look forward to.
