Summer is coming to an end. Well at least for Katie it is. This is her last week away at camp and I must admit I've really missed her this week. She has had a total of five weeks of camp this summer. One week away and the next home.
She just loves it and admitted to me that she will really miss it there. This is also her first year that she is not looking forward to going back to school. Who can blame her? They feed them like royalty, they swim, play, rest and worship. A full week of fun for her.
Yesterday I had to drive out to camp to pick Kate up. It was registration day at school. I do not like registration day at the high school. It takes forever. Lots of standing, walking and climbing stairs, painful!!
On the way to camp I noticed that the corn was as high as an elephants eye!!
It was a pretty drive.
There's the lake, we're almost there.
Just one more turn and we're on the camp road.
And there is my Katie, looking happy as can be missing her dinner to go register for school. I know the picture is horrible but I can tell you that she wasn't happy at all!!!
So we got through registration as quickly as possible, stopped home so Kate could grab a sandwich to eat on the way back to camp. She is feeling lots better by the way.
She was very happy to be going back down this road. The road to camp.
The rest of my week was pretty busy. I had a lot of loose ends I wanted to tie up at church.
I'm still not done but I'll have a few more visits to try and get things in order as much as I can. I was looking around my office and smiled as I noticed the pictures on the door that Katie made for me when she was little!
I just can't take them down! They have faded some over the years.
Also this old picture that I just love.
I really wanted to take some photos of some of the beautiful artwork in the church that day but I needed to leave so I will save that for another post.
Next Wednesday I will see my Orthopedic surgeon for one last visit before the surgery which is now only 12 days away.
I have been cleaning a house for a family for years now and I did that today. I will clean one more day next week and then I'll be done until I am healed and able to start again. My job will be waiting for me. I will miss them so much. But I am hoping that by next year I can clean a few houses a week instead of just one.
I can get a different job but it's nice making your own schedule and the pay is much better than working at a store. Plus I love to clean. If you've been here long enough you already know that. Which is why I expect to heal quickly, I can't sit still for long!!
So Kate will be home next week and then she will have her first day of school on the day I have my surgery the following week. Easy to remember when school starts that way!!
Oh I finally managed to get some weeds pulled this week despite the horribly hot and humid weather. Every time I took the dogs out, I bent over and yanked some out. I don't think the dogs cared much for waiting on me but the weeds are gone and the dogs are relieved!!
Now, I am going to try and find a good movie to watch. Have a fun weekend and stay COOL!!!
