    Yes I hope so grand kids are going home today 8 year old has been here since Father's day and have loved every minute but it is time to go home, he lives with his other grandmother(long story) and I will see him on weekends and then back next summer we lost his father 18 months ago so am just thankful that I get to spend time with him. It is just like watching my son grow up all over again

    So very glad you had time with him.. but smaller doses sometimes is good.. maybe you will be more prepared for his next summer visit? or you were prepared.. Good you had this.

    I'm hoping so! But, I still have a 2yr old and a husband who owns his own business (office at home, what's for lunch, have you seen my phone, will you wash my work clothes, etc.......LOL).

    Three of my kids go back Aug 31, the 4th doesn't start until Sept 12 ! the waiting is killing me. I can't wait to get back into the grove and get somethings done.

    I will for sure. I have been having fun with my Kid's and grandkids staying with me all summer. Now it is quilting time again. After I get my sewing room back to where I can get back in it again.

    No!! I'm trying to milk this summer for all it's worth! I'm a homeschooling mama, plus four of the kids will have sports going on through the fall, and there's still always the baby, cooking, housework, etc. I'm going to be running!

    No - Sept and Oct are the busiest months for high school bands.
    Lots of running around. On practice nights I will walk around the HS track
    for 2 hours while the band plays and practices their drills.

    Not time or cost effective to try to go back home to sew. We live too far away. Plus there are adozen weekend events and about 8 home football games.
