The school year is well under way here and it has become quite clear that if I don't make lists, I will forget, neglect or just put things off. I am now in the habit of making short, manageable daily lists.
Wrapping up summer blog post was on today's list, so bear with me...I will feel better.
Olympic viewing has certainly changed since I was a child. I remember watching whatever the networks deemed interesting and being at their mercy. Now, a simple click of the remote had us recording obscure events like Equestrian and synchronized swimming and watching later. I also got an App on my phone that allowed Sugar Plum Fairy to update the USA's medal count each day on mini chalkboards...she loved it!
As far as our summer "To Do" list, we did pretty well...we went to the library each week, built sandcastles and moats, made s'mores over the stove and even had a couple date nights! I have a standing rule over the summer that there is "No TV, during the week, during the day". For the most part, that happened as well.
All in all, it was a nice summer, albeit, lightening quick!
