During these two weeks I have lost two phone numbers that I needed, misplaced my phone twice, left my purse at a restaurant once, and currently can't find my keys. It is time for some major organization around here. I would like to get the house cleaned up and organized this week, because next weekend we are heading out on an eight-day trip to the Eastern half of the state, for family July 4th events and Average's high school reunion. We don't get out to the area he grew up very often, so are going to try to hit all the major stops on our trip: grandparents, dad, old friends, hot springs, and mountain biking trails! It should be interesting doing this trip with a toddler child and a dog, three bikes and a bike trailer, dressy, casual, and exercise clothes, and all our cloth diapers, all in our Camry. Wish us luck!
When we return from the trip, I start a one-week course for teachers, in order to attain the credits required to maintain my teaching license. I have a feeling this summer is going to fly by, but I have a long list of things I want to do with Sweet Pea this summer. We are going to:
go swimming (already done once)
go berry picking (blueberry, strawberry, and cherry, please!)
float down the river (any river, I don't care, I just want to be on the water)
install our new front door
replace the beams for the patio cover
harvest tons of vegetables from our garden
teach Glen to stay, and to come when called
prepare to run a half marathon in September
go to both Average and my ten-year reunions
What are your summer plans? Am I forgetting anything important?
