Can It Really Be Over?

I'm feeling kind of blue today as I realize that school starts in just over a week and a half.  I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by.  I know it's because we've traveled so much this summer, but I still want to do so many things!  Gage and I traveled to St. George with my Mom, nephew Nate, and my neice Lindsey, then the next day went on to Arizona to see my Mika and little sister Becky.  Oh....my....HOT!!  Phoenix was 116 degrees.  Never, ever, again will I visit Arizona in July thru September.  I don't know how people do it.  I didn't find one thing pleasurable about it.  Even my sister's pool, which is usually wonderful, was at 92 degrees!!  The kids didn't seem to mind it, but I'm not cut out for that kind of heat.  I am very grateful that I had the chance to visit with my sis, and Mika, but I don't know how they survive that heat. 

It was a whirlwind trip, and really went by too fast.  Too many miles, in too short of a time for my liking.  Mom and Nate left the day after we got back home, and missed my birthday by one day.  Not that I needed any fanfare; it just would have been nice to spend a quite day with them here. 

I've got to get Gage to the dentist and pediatrician in the next coming week.  We're set with school shopping, as I buy clothes throughout the year, so I don't have to rush to get that done.  I'm feeling a little sad that he'll be in school all day, but I'm putting on a brave face for him.  I'll have lots of time to get all of my projects finished, i.e., my craft room, paint the guest bathroom, paint Gage's room, and so on.

Hope you all had a great summer!  I'll be checking in soon with some new pics!
