Busy Summer

Whoa! I have failed at my goal of posting at least once each week, haven't I? We have been super busy with life, and family, and kids, and activities, and swimming, and....

Katie has spent the past two weeks at religious ed. She was studying for her First Communion. She has another set of classes in the fall, then will receive the Eucharist for the first time in December. I am so proud of her. She is such a sweet and loving child.

Brendan has been busy volunteering at religious ed with youth group. This is the first year he hasn't been in classes - he has graduated to helping now. :)  He loved it, and is really enjoying youth group and all of the fun activities.

I have been taxiing children to their various activities. Since school was released for the summer, I have driven to tennis lessons, junior golf, swimming, religious ed, playdates, etc. My car and I are tired.

Mr. C has been working. A lot. Again. Still. I swear, it just never ends. But we are grateful he is needed at his job, and that he is so conscientious in his work. He has also been golfing quite a bit.

The fires in Colorado have caused air quality issues in Cheyenne, so I have had to stay inside quite a bit. It is very frustrating, and hot. With the windows shut, we aren't getting the gentle evening breezes we typically enjoy this time of year. I am praying it ends soon, and not just for my sake. So many have lost their homes...it is heartbreaking.
