 I haven't blogged in so long. Not because I don't have anything to say, which is usually the case. But because I couldn't remember the password. Whenever I thought about it I would ask Abby for it and she was busy. When she wasn't busy, I didn't think about it. Isn't that the way it goes! 

This has been such a busy summer, and then some days, like yesterday, I didn't even leave the house.

... All the kids went to children's camp last week. Samuel went as a counselor, Daniel and David went as 6th graders( their last year as campers) and Anna went for the very first time. And she did great. We were both worried, but she didn't cry, call me, or get homesick. Fantastic!

... We enrolled Samuel in public school for geometry and to play baseball this year. I hope it goes well. The schools disorganization was surprising to me, and I hope does not continue through the school year.

... Today is my birthday. Abby was so sweet in her birthday post. It was a perfect day. It began with gifts, and donuts. I laid by the pool and played with the boys in the pool. Then I went to Little Rock with a teenage friend to shop and the guys met us for dinner. Fabulous! 

... Except that Stephen left for for Ft Smith after dinner and I am ending the day alone. Well, the boys are here. But you know what I mean.

... Anna has had sewing camp this week. She has made a pillow, purse, and an apron. She has loved it so much, and hasn't been bothered a bit by being away from us again. Since when did she become so independent?

... summer is almost over and I'm ready to get back to a routine. But first a trip to Branson!!
