Hot Weather

It's been so hot here the past three days. The temps have been in the high 90's and yesterday we even saw 100 degrees. Now don't get me wrong I was happy to see the sun, just would prefer it to be in the 80's and sunny. Thankfully we have seen the last of these hot temps for now, the weather has started to change this evening. While sitting at the pool I believe the temp dropped a good 10-15 degrees. Right now its 81 and perfect.

After dinner darling hubby and I took the rug rats for walk. I only managed to hobble around the park once as I have a huge blister on my heal that made walking uncomfortable. But its a start, who knows maybe tomorrow I will be able to walk longer.

Trying to decided on what type of adventure to do with the kids tomorrow as Darling needs to sleep for work tomorrow night. Maybe we will hit the zoo or just go to the park. All I know is that it will be cooler and so getting outside is for sure something we are going to do.

WOW it's been a year!

Hard to believe that it has been almost a year since I last wrote anything on here. So much has happened in the past year that it would take me hours to write it all out. So lets just touch on the highlights.

First I went back to school last September, passed my coding certification test in March and graduated in June of this year. Now on the hunt for a job. The hunt seems to be harder then actually getting the training and certification!

Our son has had a busy year with completing several camping trips with his boy scout troop. The last of which was a backpacking adventure along the Olympic Peninsula. He made the rank of Second Class and is currently working on his next rank as well as merit badges. June saw him graduate the 6th grade, he is looking forward to entering middle school in the fall. (I on the other hand refuse to believe he is old enough.....something I will have to work on this summer.)

Now on to our daughter. She was busy with girl scouts this year and moved up to Juniors in June. She was very excited about this change as it allowed her to stay overnight the last day at girl scout day camp. Ok, so she didn't make it all night...yes I got the call around 9:30 p.m. to come and get her because she wanted to come home. None the less she had a great time and is looking forward to all the badges she can work on this coming year. As for school we are proud to say she is moving on to the 4th grade. Still working on the reading but with practice this summer I'm sure she will be fine come September.

Darling hubby had his sabbatical last winter. He was off work from the end of October till the middle of January. We didn't take any grand trips like we had talked about since I was in school. However he enjoyed his time at home. The holidays arrived and we all had a great time off together, that hasn't happened before. Yes it was hard for him to go back and we are already counting down the days till the next one. (six years from now!)

Now that summer has arrived we are making plans for day trips around the area and our annual camping trip to Beverly Beach in August. This will be a great summer spent just hanging out with the kids and relaxing. Let the fun and adventures begin!
