Summer Time goes quickly

After our vacation, time went fast.

Leah passed her permit test and went out a few times a week for driving lessons.

Rachel went right back into soccer practices for the middle school team. The practices leading up to the start of school were in the morning, so Monika was the chauffer. Only one practice was cancelled due to high temps and humidity.

Family time was spent at the YMCA. Aletta was so close to swimming across the pool by herself.

The family also ventured out to a U-pick blueberry patch coming home with 6lbs worth. It made many cobblers and pancakes.

Nathan and Monika exercised together during the lunch hour. Nathan has lost about 45 pounds since February. He ate a lot of tomato sandwiches for it could be called the tomato sandwich diet.

Sara, Aletta and Anna kept asking how soon they could get school supplies and clothes. Anna wanted to go back to school.

There were also quite a few rainstorms mixed in to add excitement. Anna always said she didn't like the rain and noise. However, TN is officially out of a multi-year drought.

Finally, on August 2nd, the youngest three with Nathan attended the openhouse to their new school. The girls had a 2 hour day on August 10th and then went full time on the 12th.

Sounds like a fun summer! Congrats on the weight loss! I think I will try the tomato-sandwich diet. Maybe it will work for us? He should write a book... Ü
