Wrong. I've just been lazy & the fact that every time I get on the computer I either get sucked in by FB (I'm such a Nosey Nellie. I can't help it.) or one of my children (mostly Baby Girl) will insist on using it.
So now the Semi-Slacker children are all in school. The same school, finally. Baby Girl is loving "big school". She was already "known" throughout the Lower School, so she's right at home. And I can get back to my regular blogging schedule. maybe. *click the pictures to see better*
|Can't you tell she's going to be trouble?|
|He looks totally thrilled.|
filled them with jumbo paper clips, magnetic clips, magnetic push pins (how smart!) & post-it style notepads & some decorative shred. My bestie made (in like 10 minutes) vinyl monograms for each teacher. Wa-la, Semi-Slacker teacher gifts!
Since y'all missed out on all the Semi-Slacker shenanigans this summer, I've decided to give y'all a brief (it's not going be brief) summary.
We celebrated Emma Ruth's 92nd birthday with a party at her assisted living center i.e. "the old folks' home". She loves it there. It's like a sorority house for senior citizens, except they take pills instead of drink.
In case you missed it, we acquired a new pet. Meet Sophie Mae the Bunny. She's actually a pretty good pet, quiet & basically house-broke herself. And she eats people food. (before anyone gets all PETA on me, that's in addition to the healthy rabbit food & treats we give her.) She, like every other animal we own, is a little chunky.
We swam all summer!!! And I am pleased to say that all the children are jumping off the diving board & swimming in the deep end. So I've been able to get a real good tan this summer. (except now it's fading) Every year I feel the need to display my awesome diving skills with both front & back flips. For the children of course, but I have decided to share my skillz with y'all as well.
This was taken by Sass at the beginning of the summer & doesn't show off my tan, just my awesome bod. Please try to control your laughter.
I read 2 books this summer & all I usually read is People magazine! The Help & Water for Elephants. Both great books, The Help was the best, I have to admit. I guess I could relate better. I had a lady that kept me when I was little named Nina Mae & she was "old school" like the ladies in the book with the uniforms & all. I can't wait to see the movie, I'm about to go by myself! And Water for Elephants comes on PPV next month!
I took the children to see Judy Moody & Zookeeper. Guess which one I preferred. Here's a clue, it ain't Judy Moody. My besties & I saw Bridesmaids & Changing Up & Retro & I saw Crazy, Stupid, Love. That may be my favorite movie of the summer, but remember I haven't seen The Help yet. Retro & I had several of our version of "date night", where we lay in the bed & watch movies on Pay-Per-View. We saw Take Me Home Tonight (R's fave), Just Go With It, Limitless (I need some of that!), Lincoln Lawyer, Hall Pass & Arthur & something I've probably forgotten.
Retro turned the big 4-0. Of course I threw him a little party the night before we left vacation/relocation.
