This one will go down as the summer that Darius started to grow his mullet.
And that he started to play ice hockey.
And the summer that Raina got big.
The summer we spent trying to get Joy to move here.
The summer that nearly every day started with both kids in our bed, somehow.
The summer that Djavad worked his ass off.
The summer that my business kind of exploded and had me working every morning.
And the summer that my hair probably got really gray under the blonde.
There were moments when Raina & Darius got along - and they were blissful.
These two have it pretty good though and we did get to do some fun adventuring.
Here are the highlights.
As soon as 2nd grade & 4th grade wrapped up in May, the kids and I headed east to celebrate my niece Kamryn's UVM graduation. All of my siblings and parents would be there. We flew into Logan and then went to stay with the Logans (hee hee) in Harvard for a night. From there, we headed up to Burlington for the party (so fun!), and then we took our sweet time getting to Littleton with mom and my brother's family. We had some fun on Main Street and Helter Skelter Road then made our way down to The Cape to hang with my sister Kate until our flight was due to leave. However, en route to the airport, we got some scary news regarding my mom and put the brakes on heading home for a few weeks. We spent a lot of time going between Dartmouth Hitchcock and Littleton and we spent a lot of time down by the river, visiting Grandma&Grandpa on Summit Ave, and really just relaxing at mom's house and exploring in the Notch. We also spent a good deal of time doing laundry, being that our weekend trip had suddenly become a 2-week trip. ;) Mom is okay now and we are back home. The summer has flown by and here I am, 6 days into the new school year, finally getting this post up. HA! Busy summer.
Here are some highlights:
Summer 2021 went by SO FAST. With our wacky school schedule, we start shifting gears to get back to school when most of our family and friends around the country are just starting their summers.
We've been back in school since mid-July ish now while most of our friends are still mid-summer.
Raina was in school all of June and summer was consumed by activities and therapies and habilitation...but we were able to get in some camping and boating, lots of swimming, and FINALLY...after too long a wait....some visitors.
Anyway, this was how it all went.
