It’s Over!

Today, August 12th is our final day of summer vacation. I am so sad to see it go. I spent today in Louisville with my girls shopping. We managed to hit 3 different malls and only bought a few things here and there. It’s not easy to find adorable things at affordable prices these days. We did find a store that we all three really liked, Forever 21. They are supposedly a christian company, we noticed John 3:16 on our bag as we left the store. Each of us tried several things on but only Ms. Ally bought something, skinny jeans. Can you believe those are still in? I’m not a fan, maybe because all my fat would show if I wore them. Blak!
I also made the huge mistake of trying on some swimsuits! Talk about depressing! Oh man! What was I thinking? Needless to say, I didn’t purchase anything in that department. But I did make a new pact with myself in the mirror…….TIME TO GET FOR-REAL BUSY! I’m getting back into shape or else! I have a walking partner (now that school is starting back up) in a fellow teacher at school. She teaches freshman PE. We like to hit the streets and walk and talk about our day. It’s good for us both….physically and mentally. After seeing myself today in the mirror….I’m thinking I may need to run instead of just walk. But, no need to kill myself so early in the school year. I’ll just work my way up. Maybe by the time it turns cold here, my jeans will fit again.

Here are some highlights of our summer:

1) Sweetboy turned 18!!
2) Ms Gates went to Crossings camp in Kentucky
3) Sweetboy went to Hoosier Boys State
4) Southern Baptist Convention in Indy
5) Girls went to Kentucky Lake for a week
6) Hubby gets full-time job
7) Our family joins FBC North Vernon in membership

1) Gavin, Ally & I went to Mfuge in Greenville, SC
2) Our family & friends trip to The Beach Waterpark in Cincinatti
3) Hubby started supply preaching
4) Ms Gates went to Holiday World with FBC
5) Ally flew to Florida to visit grandparents
6) Gavin & Gates spent a day on the river tubing/skiing with youth group

Time sure flies by when you’re being lazy….staying up too late and then sleeping in. I’m so spoiled! I don’t wanna get up and go to school. Pray for me, I’m the rebellious type. I’ll be tossing and turning all night tonight since tomorrow is the first day of school. Oh well, all good things must come to an end including summer. Don’t blink, it will be Christmas before we know it.
