Here's what we've been up to lately...
Enjoying our backyard fire pit with dutch-oven dinners, weenie roasts and s'mores with super fun friends. We've been working hard (distinguished visitors, looming hurricane, 12th AF 70th celebration), and studying harder (sometimes I just HATE homework as much as my kids do... seriously, why does my brain hurt when I help my middle-schoolers with their homework?!). I've been cleaning and organizing, taking the kids to the pool to escape the still inferno-like heat. Together with the dogs, we've been watching some most incredible amazing lightening storms as this has been one of the most intense monsoon seasons we've experienced since moving here. We've also been planning for our pending overseas move by going to appointments, yard selling (I think I've bought more than I've gotten rid of, haha!), exercising like the zombie apocalypse is approaching, (seriously - we've been working our butts off!) .... and on, and on!

Bubbles, Flubber, Sidewalk Paint
And later next month, I'm going to help Buggy make THESE cute finger puppets.
I picked up these two boxes at the dollar store to hold all the babysitting items in, but I will probably look for something more practical - with a lid and handles.
Military Man has been trying to help me finish up a few projects I've had on my "things to-do someday" list - things that only take a couple of hours to finish, but I've always been missing one or two necessities to wrap them up.
