Next time 4th of July rolls around and I want to buy fireworks, just encourage me to light $30 on fire and throw it into the driveway. I don't know if it's because all of the fun fireworks are illegal where we live or what, but fireworks are never as enjoyable as I expect them to be and I forget this every year.
We had a rainy 4th of July and Mr. Ashley was on call for work, so it was hard to have any kind of crazy fun. We went swimming once the rain cleared and walked down to the lake to feed the ducks before lighting some stuff on fire and going inside for ice cream sundaes.
Not much else to report here. I've been really surprised by how quickly summer is passing. Remember how long summer felt when you were little? What happened to that? I've been having such a great time with the boys that I really dread the start of the school year. Yeah, the free time will be great but the homework and the laundry and the lunch-packing is a big fat hassle.
Also, a new school year means that people are growing up, and that makes me a little bit sad. Okay, it makes me a lot sad! I just want time to slow down, is that too much to ask?
