There has been a lot of family togetherness around here this week, so many opportunities locally to get out and enjoy. We're in a groove of outdoor concerts (rain or shine), ice cream socials (for dogs!), and have enough local, small town activity to occupy us until the whirlwind of back to school begins. The bickering has been minimal, and I imagine I will be quite lonely when I send them all off to school in a few short weeks.
(Cue angry voices, sounds of a scuffle, and crying in the background ;)
