End of the Summer

Another summer comes to an end! :( I have to report Monday morning to work on curriculum. I have no idea when we actually start though. The past month has been busy, but slower than the first 1/2 of summer. Since last post, we celebrated 4th of July over in Grand Mound. For a small town, it packs a helluva punch for celebrations. We kicked off the celebration with the water parade. Basically, it's a town wide water fight. We hung out @ the Blakes for the duration of the day with 40 some people. Fireworks began and blew our minds! BEST FIREWORKS EVER!!!

Next up on the calendar was my party. Hooray for making it one year!!! Ross and I frantically tried to finish some housework up and clean. Unfortunately, the basement entryway (which we just re-sheetrocked) was still 1/2 purple and 1/2 white. Friends and family came over and fun was had by all.

RAGBRAI came to Storm Lake. I took a few days and went there. I played and helped paint. Ross got to enjoy some quality Madeline time.

Besides doing that, we've been busy cleaning up Madeline's art work. She chooses to color on herself, sheets, and walls. Magic Eraser was a great invention. That's about it. I'll keep you posted on what 6th grade is like.
