What's Been Going On

Some of you may have noticed that I've been a little bit absent lately.   No, I haven't left you!  I did want to give you a brief explanation, however.

It's really pretty simple: since summer began I have been very busy trying to occupy my child who is home from Kindergarten now and really, really missing her structured days at school, and really, really not used to having to put up with a younger sibling all day long anymore!

It's nothing that any other parent in the world isn't having to deal with right now, it just takes up a lot more of my time!

We've been doing a lot of reading together, a lot of trips to the library for storytime and other activities (we've seen a clown and a ladies with animals that were endangered species!)

My husband is teaching summer school, and working even more hours than normal at his second job (not all teachers get summers off!) so we haven't been seeing very much of him lately, and my girls are really missing him and that's causing them to need even more of my attention.

I've still been keeping up with making my weekly menus (even if I don't stick to them) and making my weekly goals (ditto), even though I haven't been able to find much time to get them posted.

I'm going to try to keep up with blogging as much as a can this summer, but I won't be able to post as often, so please just understand that my family is needing me a bit more right now.

I've been doing some very frugal, fun activities with my girls, and I think I will try to take some pictures and post about some of them.   It's not my usual post topic, but it's what I've been doing lately, so I thought you might enjoy seeing that (as opposed to silence!)

I hope to share a few things we've already done so far this summer with you soon!

But now, I'm off to make Father's Day dinner for when daddy gets home from work! =)

I'm in a little bit of the same place Amanda! It's definitely right to put family first! It's been tough to juggle everything since the kids have been out of school. I wonder how homeschoolers do it:)
