We now have a 1st grader, a 6th grader, and an 8th grader. Tomorrow the older kids start and we will have a senior and 2 juniors. The summer went by way too fast. Miss Brainy spent all of June in college classes, went on a trip to St. Loius, to Mahoney State park and the Ozarks with her boyfriend's family. The Boss, Chatterbox, and Badgerboy went on vacation in Colorado with their paternal Aunts and Uncles. With theatre, swim lessons, trips to the pool everyday, jobs, and friends taking up most of their free time it seems like we did not have time to do anything as a family.
