Lots of activity on my blog this weekend although its all pre-scheduled. Its our last weekend of the summer before the kids go back to school. I feel bittersweet about it!!. On one hand I've had a blast with them this whole summer, however I am ready for them to start school, to start their routine and to have some "ME" time. I've been missing myself lately and it even shows on every one's blog. I've been trying to keep up with comments but with the kids around its not always easy.

We are having some gorgeous weather this weekend and yesterday we went to the beach. Today I'm having a picnic at another beach. Well its a lake beach since we don't actually have the ocean near us. I'm inland. We are trying to soak up the last rays of summer!!

My kids are also starting new adventures this year. My daughter is starting grade 1 and my son is going into grade 6 which is middle school here. He even got a locker and has to rotate between classes like in high school. Its a big change for both of them and we are all excited.

I hope you are enjoying yourselves wherever you are.
