July at a Glance

Posted July 31, 2015 by Lori in Books / 0 Comments Tags: ,


We were gone for two weeks this month and that made it seem like July barely even happened! We left for California and came back and July was basically over. It was crazy and long but totally awesome! We saw so many things I’d never seen before and had so much fun. Plus, the kids were great! I was nervous about having them away for so long but now that they’re older, they’re totally awesome. I love traveling with them and I hope these trips are things they’ll remember for a very long time.

As far as reading went, I actually got a lot more done than I had even planned. Though I still veered a bit from my list. Still, sharing a hotel room with kids who go to bed at 8pm means lights out for everyone. All I had left to do was read on my ereader. I enjoyed it though, definitely not complaining!

Blogging, however, didn’t quite get kept up with the same way. I had planned on scheduling a bunch of posts before I left but you know how that goes. Planning is great but doesn’t get things done. And when it came right down to it, after days of packing for four for 15 days and getting the house ready to be left and everything else done, I just wasn’t in a place where I wanted to think about anything. So I’m sorry. I hope to pick it back up in August!

I hope July was awesome for all of you guys too! I can’t believe school starts again next month! In case you guys don’t know, which you probably don’t because I don’t talk much about it here, but we’ll be homeschooling this year. And I’m terrified. And excited. So we’ve got a lot to do before the school year officially starts!

Coming Up in August

August is going to be so great! And crazy. Not only does school start but so many other things are happening as well! On the blog, we’ll be part of the Bounce by Noelle August tour, which I’m SOOOO excited for! We’ll also have a couple of other tours and the regular monthly giveaway. And perhaps the most fun? It’s Bout of Books time again! Starting August 17 and lasting all week, it’ll be full of fun times and lots of reading! Put it on your calendar now!

Also happening will be the regular monthly posts and lots of great books! I’m really excited for the books I have set aside to read and hope I can get more posts up in August than I did this month. School is starting, which will set things back a bit since we’re homeschooling this year. But I’m hoping it won’t be too long until we’re settled into a schedule that works for all of us. Also, even though our local schools start August 19, I think I’m going to put off starting until after the Bout of Books week. Welcome to the awesomeness of homeschooling!

I hope August will be great for all of you and I hope your Julys were full of fun!
