the rest of the summer...sigh

I can't believe summer is half way over...or for my more optimistic friends...we still have half a summer to go! Woohoo!! The next 7 weeks of summer are busy for us. Here is the lowdown...

Madeline has 3 orthodontist appointments over the next couple weeks to get a spacer put in on her bottom jaw.

Next week the kids have their favorite week of the summer!!

For 2 weeks after that they both have swimming lessons every morning.

We have one week of hanging out, relaxing, freaking out that the office won't be ready for school. *sheepish grin*

Then my WHOLE family (Chad and I and the kids, my mom and dad, my sister and brother-in-law and their 4 kids) are going on vacation together for the first time ever. It has been a dream of my parents that they would be able to do this for our families and this summer is it! We are going to Nest Lake in Minnesota for a week. Fishing, canoeing, pontooning,tubing, boating, swimming, kayaking, hydro biking, paddle boating, the whole nine yards!

We have one week off to go to the State Fair (we are taking the kids to the demolition derby this year-my Grandma Lester's favorite!!!), relax, and to freak out that the office isn't ready for school.

Then we are starting school!!

So are you freaking out that the office isn't ready for school yet? :-D It'll all pull together, no doubt. The Nest Lake adventure looks amazing -- our family used to do this every year in Okoboji. GREAT memories!!!
