Another hot day in Boston. This summer is proving to be quite the warm one. I am surprised by how many days are very warm and how sticky the nights are.
Despite my journeys into depression, this summer has been good. I am seeing the transition of little kid to kid in Soleil. I am seeing that Luna, who has always been Daddy’s girl, is now falling in love with mommy. It’s kind of nice. Luna is definately growing up and I like to see it. I know that there will be a day when the girls will want to be with their friends more than with mom and dad, but for now, it is good.
We have new neighbors moving in soon. The old guard neighborhood is moving to a place of kids. We’ll have a full house at the bus stop in the fall.
Our tomato plants are growing well thanks to Grandpa who transplanted them when we were gone in France. Lots of green tomatoes are growing. I don’t know when they will ripen. I think this means we should try this again next year!
Saturday will be Soleil’s birthday party. I made a bunch of bean bags (okay-rice bags) for a bean bag game for the party last night. I have about 4 games to get together. And to run a buy some prizes for people.
Then Jay leaves for Scotland that night. We leave for NC a few days later to visit my parents. Jay and I arrive back in Boston about 1 hour apart, so I’ll drive him home. This means I still need to pack for NC. Take two girls on the plane alone. I hope they don’t fight!
And YES, Johnny, I have a house sitter (to water the tomatoes!) so someone will make sure the house is safe!
Fall is coming up quickly! I can’t believe it! I plan on getting school stuff LATE AUGUST because I don’t want to think about it!
