Three Kites

The fun is over, and it’s back to regular life. Which is also pretty darn fun, in its own way. My parents and niece departed last night after a short, action-packed visit following on the heels of our other niece-visit. I won’t say it feels like summer is winding down—not on the 6th of August, I won’t—but the crazy-busy part is behind us now. Doctor, dentist, orthodontist, optometrist, audiologist appointments mostly all caught up. And Wonderboy does start back to school next week, which boggles the mind a bit! The rest of us will remain in low tide for a bit longer. Especially Jane, whose sophomore year doesn’t begin until mid-September. Then again, this summer she has an internship, a babysitting job, and an online psych class, so “low tide” is relative.

I look forward to returning to regular daily posts here. I have so many topics saved up, including a rave review of the Phone Photography class I’m taking via Big Picture Classes, an endeavor that has greatly enriched my summer.

How about you guys? Whatcha want to talk about? Dare I admit I haven’t cracked a book in weeks? So unlike me!

    It sounds like you’ve got lots of precious goodness you’ve been soaking up — sometimes that’s enough for the heart, hmm? And books get set aside for a time.

    Man, I haven’t gotten my kite out all summer. That must change!
    The weather here has been so odd – misty, foggy, cloudy, mild – that, with the exception of about three week’s worth of quite hot weather, it’s felt like an oddly extended Spring. It DOES boggle the mind that for many school is starting again, like, next week!? (My siblings are starting college mid-September as well, but the nephews are off already.) On the other hand, I can’t wait to see what this autumn brings – extended mild cool days? Cold snaps? Torrential – please God – rain?

    (Have I asked you this before?) Are you going to KidlitCon in October? Since it’s in California (and on a long/holiday weekend), I’m actually going. (Also, I’m going since I’m on the planning committee…) Would love to meet you in person.

    Tanita, dunno if you saw my comment on the previous post—alas, I have a scheduling conflict and can’t make it to Kidlitcon. 🙁 When oh WHEN are we two to meet up???
