I am writing.

I am realizing it is already August. But I can’t quite believe it.

I am wondering. When we will get the dogs? When will our new nephew be born? (Kevin’s sister is due with her second, oh, so very soon.)

I am planning. Camp transportation. Baby visiting. Dog vetting. Fall extra-curriculars. 
I am debating. Got up early for spin and weight class, plus soccer practice tonight … should I go swimming too? 
I am appreciating. Spontaneous all-family bike ride last night, with non-stop-talking CJ behind me on borrowed trail-a-bike. (“This is AWESOME, Mama!”) Suppers stuffed with fresh veggies. Heat. Backyard get-together with neighbourhood friends. (“You’re going to another mom-party, Mom?!”) Late nights. Laundry on line.
Quick, passing, sweet, heartfelt summer.
Summer luxuries
On the sidelines

      Still no news on dogs.

      Every time the phone rings, I wonder whether it might be you or Paul with baby news! Have a wonderful weekend …
