Wow, summer has just flown by. It seems as though school just got out and it was June and high heat temps were bearing down upon us, now we have just a few weeks left before school starts up again on August 20th.
I sneaked over to the District's website to check out dates & such. Registration for Elementary schools (thankfully I still have one more year of all mine in one school) is August 6 & 7, Maeser is open from 8 am to 3 pm, lol 1 hour earlier than the other Elem. schools.
I think it has been a good summer, though not enough camping done for hubby -- though we did go for the full week after school ended to our now annual "Limestone Camp" and again over July 4th to 6th for a Paul Peel Reunion. I volunteered to be in charge of next year's Paul Peel Family Camp, I am thinking of the 2nd weekend of June, when it is still pretty on the mountain (all in the Paul Peel Family come along).
Oh my, August 1st also means I need to call my ladies and get my Visiting Teaching report done.
Today I plan to can beans, I've picked 3 times, my last time was a nearly-full 3 gallon bucket from my 2 16-foot rows of bush beans -- next year I've got to get a lattice or fence put up, this bending over stuff hurts my back so bad!
I also picked apricots last week, I need to get those processed somehow, probably dry them into fruit leather. I just lack the enthusiasm for getting the project done because it's just me doing the work. Though my bigger boys are old enough to help, well sometimes they just make a bigger mess than I want to deal with. However, I keep thinking I should not be denying them this opportunity to learn to work hard. ;)
Alright, I've rambled much, so now am going to leave and go back to my hunt for inexpensive 64 ounce bottles of peanut butter -- though am beginning to think there is no such thing.
