How are we already half way through August? I could ask where has all the time gone, but I already know how to answer that:
It’s gone into keeping 2 kids alive by myself for the past 2 weeks.
We returned home from camp on August 1st, (and had such a great time away together – a hard, busy month, but SO good), as I had to be back at work, and so for the past 2 weeks the kids and I have been solo-ing it. Ben has to be up at camp until the end of the summer, and so we knew we would have this month apart. It’s safe to say that we are surviving and actually, while the thought of a month of working full time and single parenting seemed so daunting, we have been doing really well.
I’m so appreciative of my kids and how happy and flexible they have been at being carted around, spending nights at grandparents and being away from their dad. We have had some great laughs together, and lots of fun doing things just the three of us, and while we miss Ben a lot, it really has been a special month so far.
But am I still counting down the days until we’re all back together again? You’d better believe it.
Now that we’re home, hopefully this blog will have a little more life in it in the days to come. But until then, enjoy this picture of Zeke, who is eating his frozen yogurt like it’s his job. (Because, sometimes, after supper, on a hot day, you just have to go get frozen yogurt where you choose all your own toppings.)
