Happy Wednesday! It’s the last Wednesday of the month so I am sharing what we’ve been up to. Let’s get to it!
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK…
I have no idea! The boys are spending a bunch of time with my parents this week for Camp Gigi so I don’t have to worry about their meals. Jeff and I are grabbing things from the kitchen or eating out this week. There is no meal plan. I do need to get my act together for next week, though.
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT…
Our county used to go back to school before Labor Day so I have seen a few first day of school pictures pop up in my memories. These little buddies are so sweet!
WHAT I’M LOVING…
I have one thing – I am loving SUMMER!! We’ve had a bunch of family time. We’ve been to new places and old favorites. We are soaking in the easy mornings and later bedtimes. We’re eating yummy sweet corn and tomatoes. Summer has been oh so good to us!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…
We have been up to a bunch! We’ve been to New York City! I shared our trip here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).
We finished a great summer swim season!
We’ve been to Alabama!
We’ve been to the Outer Banks in North Carolina.
We’ve been to Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown.
We’ve done a lot of unpacking, laundry, and repacking!
We’ve spent a bunch of time at the pool when we were home.
WHAT I’M DREADING…
I am not really dreading it, but I’m bracing for the change in routine from summer freedom to fall schedules. I love summer and I love our fall schedule, but the switch from one to another can be ROUGH!
WHAT I’M WORKING ON…
I just finished a summer grad class.
I am working on getting ready for 450+ students to start school next Tuesday. I am processing new books, getting computers organized into new classes, and planning lessons.
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT…
I am excited to start this school year back to normal. I cannot wait to get those sweet students in the library!
I am excited for September steamed crabs. They are usually so good this month and I’m hoping to get crabs a few times.
I am excited for my kids to start school. Luke is headed to middle school and Jack is the oldest grade at the school. I am hopeful that they’ll have a spectacular year!
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING…
I am finishing season two of Sweet Magnolias. I finished the final season of Grace and Frankie. I loved it!!
I have been reading a TON!! I was planning to share my monthly book review yesterday but I didn’t get to it with school starting. I’m hoping to have it tomorrow. You can always find what I’ve been reading on my Books 2022 page or follow along on Goodreads. I am Sarah Parsons on there.
WHAT I’M WEARING…
I am back to work this week so it’s not just pajamas, bathing suits, and exercise clothes. You never know how cold or warm rooms will be at school so I’ve been wearing t-shirts, quarter zips, and shorts this week.
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…
Luke has a soccer tournament and I can’t wait to watch him play.
I am hoping to spend some time at the pool! We’re meeting some friends there on Sunday evening.
I’m hoping to get Jack to the golf course or driving range.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH…
We start school next week and I love first day of school traditions!
Jack and I are heading back to JMU in September.
We have our fall birthday season – my dad, sister, brother-in-law, Jeff, and me.
Jack’s golf tournaments start up again and I love watching him play!
That’s what we’ve been up to. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

I love your “queen of the pool” shirt! So fun. The crabs look amazing. I usually only get those on vacay. You all have had an action packed summer. Good times!
You had such an amazing and adventurous summer- love it- wishing you all the best school year ever!
OH yes, you sure have done a lot of packing and unpacking this summer! That’s the sign of time well spent. 😉
