Nine Weeks of Summer Left

I started out writing a post about how it's not even technically summer yet, but we've already had 4 1/2 weeks of summer break, and how the newspaper said it's the coldest, wettest season since 1928, and how all the good VBSs are already filled up and I missed the deadlines, and I was actually boring even myself. So you can thank me for sparing you that. All I can say to parents of young children is that summer is a marathon, not a sprint, so we can all take a deep breath and keep that in mind. Helpful, I know. We've spent a lot of this cold, wet summer break at the library.

And I dug out my college typewriter for Elaine, who is fascinated by it. So I will leave you with a picture of my own little Kit Kittredge (a movie we've seen so much we all have it memorized)...

Gary just reminded me that the year is almost half over! What? I don't even want to think of winter months.

Elaine is soooo cute in that photo!

How can a VBS be "full"??? Never heard of such a thing...wow!!!

That's funny -- summer break always seemed so short when I was a kid!

The library sounds like a good place to be spending those wet days.

Love the pic of Elaine! I'm with Jill - how can VBS be full?? That's crazy! Well I hope the weather starts cooperating better for you back in IL! Soon you'll be seeking out the library for a break from the hot stickiness of summer! :)

I'm with Jill and Melanie! What church cuts off VBS numbers?! When I was growing up, our church would have taken ANYBODY - heck we'd've taken pets!

I love Elaine's extra, extra look!
