I'm happy to say we've had a lot more rain this summer than in the past 20 or so. We actually had major flooding in the valley. Freeways were shut down, schools were closed down, it was a real mess! We've had some cooler days and gorgeous cloudy days. The nights are getting longer and the nighttime temps are coming down into the upper 70's. That's a real break for us! I hope we have seen the last of the 105+ temps for 2014 but I'm not positive that is the case. For the last 5 or so years it's been at least 105 for Griffin's birthday. Maybe this year will be the breaker! I remember it was stormy and cool on the night he was born. Maybe we'll get lucky and have that happen again! Have I mentioned how I can't believe how big this boy is getting!?
The kids are doing well, plugging along in school. Cassandra really enjoys high school. She's going to her first Homecoming game on Friday and the dance on Saturday. It is very different than when I was in high school...she doesn't have a date, she's going with a group of girls. We went dress shopping together with her friends and moms. Her dress is beautiful and I can't wait to show off pics of her this Saturday!
I guess there isn't much else to tell...we are just on auto pilot as we cruise through the next few weeks on our way to fall break! Those are two weeks we are ALL looking forward to! We are headed to Colorado for about a week and then have our second week of break to do nothing but relax at home! I have my fingers crossed for good weather in Arizona but I KNOW we'll have gorgeous weather in Colorado, rain or shine!
Here are some kid pics and some pics of projects I've been working on...I'm in full holiday decorating mode!
