Summer 2010 as we know it is coming to a close. Every year, August rears its searing head and we look around, wondering where the summer has gone. All of a sudden the kids start looking at sale flyers for clothes, and frantic pleas are made for "one more trip" to the mini golf range, Water Country, one more Saturday night down at the bay listening to whatever band is lined up. Old home week is right around the corner, complete with town wide scavenger hunt and 5k for young and old alike. This year there is even more urgency, as our girl has been away for most of the month of July. Sometimes we need to prioritize. This is the lesson for our pre-teenager, who doesn't understand why we can't just hurry and DO everything! Never mind the cumulative $1,500.00 spent from airfare sending her south on her own, to going down for a week to VA to pick her up, spend a few days with the dtr in law and granddaughter, then 4 days in DC showing her everything we can possibly get to. I have a confession to make. August 30th can't get here soon enough!
