The rest of our summer was fast, fun, and carefree. A few day trips, still have a few more planned, and hopefully one more trip to the ocean before the end of August.
My kiddos started school already and the house is too quiet. This year, the preparations felt more calm. One amusing thing was I found a box of school supplies - stuff I had purchased last year and then packed away for some reason. So I really did not need to buy too much - or so I thought until the kids came back with more 'supply lists, Why on earth do they always ask for glue sticks? I have more glue sticks than art projects at my home at the moment.

Now that school has started and we have schedules, games, and whatnot going on, I still struggle between using a planner, online calendar, and my handy "Post it" calendar at home. I tend to put appointments on my online calendar, which is 'synced' with my phone, yet have a space at home where we can glance at upcoming things.
