These last few weeks have just been so busy. In a "just keep forward momentum and we'll get through" kind of way. A came home from a trip on a Wednesday in time to pick up a feverish toddler from preschool and ended up spending the next three days( an extended week for me) as primary caretaker as I continued to chip away at work. A got nothing done during his time off and  neither one of us got much sleep at night with Babyzilla fighting his cold. A went back to work and our family navigated through a week full of evening commitments- scouts, La Leche League, adoption parenting class and then the triple header Friday night where Kidzilla left for a Scout camping trip, A attended a function at church and I attended a work related event. I was exhausted just trying to organize it. 

Saturday was relaxed but not as we tried to catch up the week's errands. We still made it to the zoo for a bit though. Our big break is soon to come though! Once A finishes the trip he's on he will start his vacation and next week I've got mine. We always plan too many projects into our time off and wind up stretched; I'm trying to avoid that this time.

Today the boys and I went to the pool as relief from the hot, muggy weather. Although the boys didn't mind, the water was freezing. I think it was our last pool trip for the year. We might try the beach this weekend, but I don't have high hopes. I'm ready for fall and the winding down of our year.
