Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. The weather has been awful, we've had more rain this Summer than I can remember. The Thunderstorms have been crazy: First we are in the pool, then everyone out, then everyone back in, now everyone out again. It is hard to believe that August is here and half gone already. Work is a bit crazy because Madigan's camp schedule is 9-2pm so I am only in the office for 5 hours a day. In a strange way, I can't wait for school to start so we can be on our routine again.
Socially, we hosted a cookout for some of the families at Madigan's school. We lucked out weather wise and had a great Summer day. We grilled up a storm serving filet mignon, chicken breast, shrimp and hot dogs and burgers for the kids. I made some great martinis and then we stoked up our new fire pit. The kids made s'mores and did not even make a mess!
This weekend brings a birthday party on Saturday and another on Sunday for three kids. Also, it is tax free weekend here in Massachusetts and I have a few things on my shopping list! I'll have to report how many things I get done next week!
