Good morning, my darlings! How is everyone this fine Sunday? We have another unexpected free Sunday today. We were going to spend the day with my brother and his family at a local water park. Sounds great, right? Mother Nature had another temper tantrum this week and has decided to give us highs in the low 60s. So much for the water park. Instead, we are going to enjoy the free day and relax.
Last weekend was supposed to be our only free weekend for the entire summer, which is why I wasn’t around last weekend. We didn’t do much other than relax. It was heavenly. Sleep, doing chores, getting caught up on some things around the house and all without having to rush to get it done. It wasn’t exciting but it was exactly what we needed.
This week saw us getting right back into the swing of things with dance, dance and more dance. Yesterday saw Holly at an Irish dance workshop. Her studio has a new teacher who has actually won Irish dance competitions in Ireland, and they were trying to discern interest in fall classes. She had a blast. Even better, they had a workshop for adults. I didn’t know about it until I got there with Holly so was completely unprepared – jeans, hair, make-up, a nice blouse. I still went for it though and ended up taking the hour-long class. It was an absolute blast. Rumor has it they are going to offer an adult class this fall. If we can fit it into the schedule, I am definitely giving it some consideration.
This week starts the build-up to fall and the school season. Connor gets to attend a week-long drill camp for marching band – eight hours every day for the week. Sounds like fun, right? I’m trying not to look at the calendar that much farther into the future because it really scares me.
