I have been checking activities off my summer to-do list and adding new things as well (read a book, go to Canada, fill my sandbox...). Whether or not I'll get to everything on the list is not really as important as setting some goals and seeing that I really did have a great summer, even though I might have normally forgotten half the things I did had they not been written down. I should have started doing this long ago, although I will say there have been times when I looked back at my blogs just to see what I had done.
counting backward thing is really working... (Judi, I am getting loopier every year!)
My darling daughter, the youngest of them, should have arrived in Grenada this morning. She will be on my heart and mind for many days to come. For now I am being kept busy and distracted by baby dolls and little girls.
