I haven’t blogged in a while but I was just reflecting on how busy our summer was so I decided to write a quick blog post. I had a trip to Raleigh, NC for work. The kids had two different basketball camps, each a week long. We took half week to go to a local water-park resort as a family trip. As usual we had a bunch of summer birthdays to celebrate and we had some family come to town to visit.
The weather was hot. It got hot early and stayed hot all summer long. Unfortunately that meant that the kids spent most of their free time inside. I took advantage by giving them summer writing assignments because both of them could use some work on their writing. They improved a bit and mostly got over the pain of writing which was the biggest gain from my point of view. Hopefully now when their teachers give them writing assignments they won’t worry about it as much.
School started up last week for the kids and school will start next week for my wife. Pretty soon I’ll be sitting in my home office in a quiet house all day.
