it's just that hot...



this is what my children did after playing outside yesterday! it has been such a hot summer (i know i don't have to tell you that!). we have been at the pool most everyday... and then laying around like slugs the rest of the time. what creative things have your children done to try to beat the heat?!

we have also been getting ready for some big changes around here. my children have decided to try school this year. i think we are all feeling a conflicting mix of emotions. both kids have attended some form of school before, but never at the same time. so, i am facing a big change myself. i have had a child with me everyday for the past eight years! that is a long time. i think it will be a fun adventure for all of us, and it will be interesting to see what happens! so, i am trying to soak up my time with them a bit now and that is why the absence from blogging. i am looking toward the future though and thinking of the time i will have to myself. perhaps it is time  for me to step back into my work a bit. i know most of you have probably given up on me, and i had pretty much given up on myself but i am looking foward to creating again. i hope you will stick with me a bit longer:)

hope you are all staying cool!

Hi there,

Just found your blog, and I can so relate to the transition you're going through. I also have homeschooled my two boys since kindergarten, and this fall my oldest will be going to an arts/middle school while the younger is still home with me. Super excited for him to have this opportunity to go to such a great school, but also realizing what a huge thing this is for our family. I don't blame you a bit for wanting to soak in the summer days- especially with both kids heading off soon. Blessings on you guys!

Yaaa a new post!!! It has been a very hot and humis summer. I just do not feel like doing anything in this heat:)
Last year was my first year in 25 yrs that I did not have any kids home:( It was sad but Iallways kept busy and the year just flew by. It just is hard for me to see my kids grow up sooo fast all eight of them. Stay cool!!! Elma elma2179@yahoo.com

It has been stifling over here in DC! If I had kids, they'd probably be up at Silver Spring or Columbia Heights, running around in the fountains...

This is my first comment, but I've been reading your blog for a few months now - I enjoy your writing, your photographs and your little creations - keep it all up! Enjoy your summer with the kids & stay cool,
