Summer Days

I love these summer days! Summer is extra special for us since my husband is a teacher and he gets the summer off too. The kids love having their Daddy home with them for a while. At the same time, by the end of the summer, we are all ready for the routine that school days bring.

We have had a very relaxing summer, but one filled with all things medical. :) Since my chemo ended in June, Emma has started all her stuff at the orthodontist, Hallie is continuing hers, and Hallie and Nathan have both had their tonsils and adenoids removed. Tomorrow I have my first consult with a plastic surgeon to talk about my reconstruction. I have decided to put the surgery off until February when my treatments are over. I did not relish doing both at the same time.

So, for another week and 1/2 we will rest, recoup, and try to enjoy these last hot, lazy days of summer break.

I'm totally exhausted just hearing about the appointments, but I guess it is good to get as much out of the way as you can to prepare for another busy school year. And, just where did summer go? It always seems to be gone in a blink of an eye. [blink]

It's almost criminal that you have to go back to school so soon!! Our district doesn't start until Sept. 1 (when we will still have several weeks of glorous weather, of course, that will have the boys pining to go swimming!). Enjoy every minute of the next days . . .
