Like Elena’s kids, my son is back in school. Hopefully unlike hers, mine is already hating it. I don’t think he’ll like school until college, and maybe not even then. Anyway. This has been an exhausting week, and I am completely uninspired.
But I do have pictures!
Our summer started out in Minnesota, where my son went to sailing school (my mom is from there, my whole family–except me–sails). That first picture is from the sailing school island, out on Lake Minnetonka.
Then it was Birthday time.Then we went to Cape Cod, to visit my dad. I forgot to bring my camera. Then to the Jersey Shore, where we frolicked on the beach and ate lots and lots of ice cream. The son made me go on one amusement park ride, to try to scare me, and although I wasn’t scared, I did get nauseated. Ah, the price of motherhood.
The beach was fantastic.
What did everyone else love this summer?
*I edited some pix from before.
I love the pics! You certainly did a lot during the summer! Me, nada, zip, nothing, null, zero. 🙂 Well, other than the one day in NYC to see Phantom, but that’s it. That’s all we could afford to do. LOL
PS — Wednesday, I FINALLY got my very own copy of The Rules of Gentility. 🙂 Still haven’t opened it up yet, but soon! 🙂
You look so tanned!
You DO look tanned and happy! 🙂 I can’t believe summer is now officially over (though it’s still 90 degrees here). I loved RWA, visiting Williamsburg, accumulating a big pile of books to read over the winter…
Well of course I loved the roller coasters and the beach time I had on my own vacation.
But now I’m really pleased the kids are back in school, they are loving it, and next week I will have time to get deeper into the writing.
Sympathies on the reentry, Megan, but I’m sure it will get better. And it also takes some time to get the creative juices flowing again. I think it’s helping me that I did a little writing over the summer. The Alphie is great for that.
