Week of August 2nd

Zoombezi lunch break

Last week the weather was nice (no rain! sun!), but hot, so we had some water fun.  Early in the week the kids and I visited Zoombezi Bay for the first time.  We went with a few friends and the kids had a BLAST! On Friday afternoon I had the unique privilege of sneaking away without kids and returning with just my friends.  It was so much fun and they even got me on some water slides (Eek!)

And some at home pool fun

We're trying to soak up as much summer as possible considering it's already August (HOW?!) With school starting in a little more than a week (so soon!) and the first part of summer monopolized by moving + rain, rain, and more rain, it seems like we haven't had the opportunity to really enjoy much of summer.  Now I feel pressure to maximize what's left, but that kind of pressure kind of negates the relaxed feel that summer should be all about.

Little to no progress was made on the house this week.  We're to the point where most everything is unpacked, but every room still feels like it's in disarray.  I don't know if it's the sporadic boxes or because not one room feels fully put together, but it's annoying because I don't know exactly how to make things feel settled.  We're trying to finalize plans for flooring on the first floor right now. Maybe once that is completed things will feel a little more finished and homey.

Sunday:  Grilled Burgers with Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Monday:  Salmon with Strawberry Avocado Salsa with Garlic Green Beans

Tuesday:  Grilled Summer Vegetable Chopped Salad
