Okay so again, I am quite tardy on the updating of my blog, but I must admit the month of July has just passed me by in a whirlwind. In the first week of July we went on our yearly San Diego Trip. We stay at a beach house and do all the San Diego "Stuff" that a tourist does in SD. We had a lot of fun. Of course my favorite part would be the beach. Notice though that there aren't any pics of me on it. I have my reasons!
A few days after our family vacation, it was my birthday. 37! wow that hurt just a bit. Am I really that old? I realize that in the grand scheme of things it is really still quite young,but how did that happen? Am I really that old? Am I going to start being the old lady at the concerts/live shows that I go to? Oh my. Anyway I digress, my birthday was fun and my kids/family really made it special. We went out for Mexican food and then returned home for cake and presents. The boys actually made my cake and decorated it. They were so proud!
Just 3 days after my b-day Illyse, Jenn and I decided to join Karen and Echo at CHA. Every summer Illyse and I plan a girl's trip. This time Jenn joined us. Since it was Jenn's b-day and mine we celebrated them in Chicago. Karen treated us to dinner downtown. We had traditional Chicago style pizza..YUM
CHA was fantabulous if I may add. Being the Rockstar that I am, I have to say that I was really excited to see the Rockstar themed paper in more than a few booths. Karen ordered the DCWV Rockstar line and I cannot wait for that to come in! We made a lot of make and takes and hopefully will be able to bring some new ideas to The Red Bee.
So yes now July is almost over and August will perch its ugly head around the bend and school will be back in session before you know it. Talk to Illyse and she will tell you...August 1st is a day of mourning for us. The countdown starts until we must go back and set up our classrooms. Eek! I like staying home. Gosh we are spoiled.
