We've been having that feeling of urgency that means summer is drawing to a close. Aaron and Nathan played their last baseball game, and have been asking "how many days are left until school starts?" In another week we will find out who their teachers will be, we just received a boy choir schedule for the year, we scheduled our piano lessons -- all sure signs that August is ticking by.
But -- there's still lots of fun to be had before September! We traveled to Green Bay to go to an old-fashioned amusement park on the shore of the bay. Rides are 25 cents for little kids, and 50 cents for the 'big' kids. We had a ball for hours, and spent $12. :o)
We've done our share of swimming, since we finally had a few warm days during this unusually cool summer, and we're headed to a Brewer game and the State Fair later this week.
Last week brought a favorite new holiday to our home: Raksha Bandhan, an Indian celebration of the love between brothers and sisters. The kids all shared sweets and tied on string bracelets to symbolize the lifelong bond between them . . . and talked about the new baby sister who will celebrate with us in future years.
