It's Labor Day Weekend

It's so hard to believe that it is the "unofficial" end of summer.  We've had an awesome summer (which I'll do a wrap up post about in the coming days). 

This weekend, though, we are just trying to soak up the last few days without school and enjoy some family time and time with friends.

We enjoyed an amazing afternoon at the pool on Friday with our friends since they didn't have school.  The weather was perfect, the pool was perfect, and we met some new people who were super nice.

Darryl and I are leaving my mom in charge the kids so we can take off for a few hours and enjoy dinner out.  It's a rainy, stormy day today (Saturday) and we've all enjoyed being home together.  Darryl treated us to coffee (and the boys to big Bigby Cookies), I put my fall scent scensty bars in my burners (even though the AC is still running since it is humid and is supposed to be HOT HOT HOT the next few days.)  The boys and my mom will enjoy some pizza and McDonald's for dinner so they are well taken care of too!

The rest of the weekend includes some planned swimming on Sunday and Monday, weather permitting, a cookout with long time friends on Sunday evening, and just soaking up the last of the quiet before school starts on Tuesday.  Don't get me wrong, the rumor is that we are supposed to have temps pushing 90's (with heat index's of 95-100) so we will do school as fast as we can in the morning and then head to the pool but the "freedom" of no school is coming to an end.  I'll be spending some time this weekend getting our lessons ready for the week but otherwise I try not to think about School until Tuesday morning!

So - enjoy the weekend!  I know we are!!
