All Girls School

That time of year…

We have reached that time of year when we do nothing but travel. The two older girls were in a family wedding and looked beautiful. We made an extra trip home in between the rehearsal evening and the wedding day to visit our local bookstore for their Harry Potter 7 release party. I am so glad we did because besides a wonderful sense of community and feeling good about supporting a local retailer, we got to watch Bubba win the costume contest! She dressed as Luna and had radish earrings and a butterbeer cork necklace. She was thrilled and received a charm bracelet and a package of blood pops. She also got a large handful of jewels to add to her house jar which pushed them into the lead. Ravenclaw won the House Cup due in a big way to her costume win.

The next week we left on our family vacation to the mountains. We had a blast climbing, swimming, running, swinging and playing in the great outdoors. There was another wedding there, but none of us were involved, we were merely spectators. It was a long drive, but it was the first time the smaller two had ever been to Colorado and they loved climbing the rocks and feeding peanuts to the chipmunks and sticking their feet in the cold rivers.

Last weekend involved a trip way out West to my great-grandmother’s 90th birthday. It was great to see all of our family and explore out in front of my grandparents’ house. The girls loved having a dog to chase around and feed bones to. Someday we may have to get a dog… someday. The found a bunch of rusty iron tools and used them to dig in the dirt. They were also treated to a ride in the tractor.

We will be home for the next stretch that takes us into birthday season. Bubba is really pusing to “start school” right away, but I’m holding out until after Labor Day because we just have too much finishing up of summer to do still.
