Summer Desires

I’ve done it again. Let my blog slip to the back burner while life (with colds and another round of the stomach bug) took front stage. Every time I fall behind I think I’ll be better prepared next time. Then life happens, living takes precedence over writing, and I find I’m not that well prepared at all.

We recovered from sickness just in time to get ready for our local homeschool convention. My in-laws took the children for the weekend, while I staffed the booth with three friends from our weekly academy. The days leading up to it were filled with frantic preparation. Partly because “if it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done” and partly because of that pesky sickness wiping me out all last week.

Now the convention is over and summer break begins in earnest. I counted up the weeks till school starts again and the summer seemed long. Then I thought through the events already planned for the summer and the ever-growing list of homemaking and writing projects to accomplish. The summer instantly felt much shorter.

I really hope to have more time to devote to this little blog over the summer, but want to thank each one of you who has kept coming back, despite my very sporadic blogging. You are just the best. <3
