Time Keeps On Slippin', Slippin', Slippin'...

Wow! August already!  I want to assure you (I know really of only 1 dedicated blog reader) that we are still up here.  We are enjoying summer and staying away from the computer.  Stories are building up in my head, so maybe one day I will write them.  For now I will keep going to the pool as much as I can, and steaming toward arranging the Fall schedule for school which is, of course, more complicated than ever (I say that every year!).

This summer has been loads more summer-like than last summer because it has been HOT!  I like hot, so I won't complain.  But it's actually been in the upper-90's a good bit, with the "heat index" reaching over 100 more than a few times.  Humidity in MN, wow.  My kids asked what the heat index is, and I said it's kind of like the opposite of wind chill.  That struck home right away, no more explanation needed!

That's all for now.  There's laundry to do and boxes of school books to open before the pool calls this afternoon.  I hope all of you are enjoying summer as much as we are!

Hey, I read your blog! I have you on my Google Reader so every time you post it comes up. :)

It's possible I am the faithful reader you speak of. I have two comments:

Wind chill equivalent to heat index, HAHAHAHA!!!

And just wait till you have to schedule 5 teenagers! :-p

Wow, neither of you is the one faithful reader (my mother-in-law, Gail, but she didn't comment, so...), so thanks!

And, for the record, when the youngest becomes a teenager the oldest will be 20, so I guess I'm off the hook for scheduling 5 teenagers. Whew!
