Not In Jersey: August in Review August in Review - Not In Jersey

August in Review

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Wow! August was one long month. It stayed hot for the beginning of the month, cooled off around the first day of school, and is pretty much hot and humid again now! The kids had 3 weeks where they were home with me 3 days per week and they went to “camp” at a program through Dave’s work 2 days per week. Then it was back to school for the big kids while Simon was home yet another week, and this week Simon started school too. Here are some of our August highlights!

Family Activities:

  • My aunt and uncle and their 3 dogs came to visit us!
  • Dave’s sister and 3 of our nephews came to visit us too! We went to the zoo and the aquarium.
  • We played glow in the dark mini golf with our friends – the big kids liked it, Simon didn’t! Pictures there were next to impossible, but:

There is still one more day of August but I’m hoping to share something else tomorrow. Plus, I needed something to write about today! So there you go.
