Zoom Zoom Zoom

That is the summer passing us by at a rapid pace. As much as I look forward to September and new routines I can't believe how fast the summer is flying by. We have had a blast this summer. So many cool activities and people and trips and food. It has been a good mixture of busy and relaxing, family and friends and beach and swimming. So much really that I can't even recap. I decided to take a break from blogging and try and be present. I am giving myself a B+. I am trying to be more relaxed, trying not to use the word NO as much, trying to let the kids be more independent. For the most part it has been successful.

We are in the throws of the local food produce and other yumminess - we are eating it all up. I am not as busy putting food away this year but enjoying it fresh.
The kids started camp today - 5 day Ringette camp and will do a 10 day power skating session in the afternoons. I think that should pretty much tire them out. I am taking up ringette this fall. I always wanted to play hockey and my friend Anne has started a Ringette for Moms program so I thought I would give it a try. If there is anyone out there with equipment that will fit and is willing to loan it to me I would love that. It sure is expensive to get suited up!

So everyone and their brother has been asking me what I am going to do in the fall now that both the kids will be in school full time. I guess in the opinions of others, things need to change. For me I want to take my time, eat up the alone time, complete lists and lists of projects and get myself healthy. That is going to be enough for me. For our household, we work way better if I am present in the home. I like it that way. I am not saying that I will never go back to the real work force but for now I am happy how things are working.

Enjoy life and hug someone you love. Thoughts and prayers going out to little Ella!
