Surviving Summer

Feels like we have been 'enjoying' summer forever.  Here in GA, they get out of school VERY early - like May 23rd.  So, I have had the . . . pleasure of all 5 girls at home . . . all of the time.  This coupled with the fact that Stella has transitioned (ing) into a big girl bed & that Arturo has a lot of out of town trips, has thrown me a bit off schedule.  I've lost my groove.  Plus, no one told me how HOT Dublin, GA is.  I know some of you may be laughing since we came from the DR & with NO air, but - but - but - it's HOT here.  Like 102 +.  OK, we do have the air on, but it is NOT fun to go outside unless it's to someone's pool. hint, hint.  

Arturo leaves for the Dominican Republic this Saturday & praise God my mom is coming to be with us - did I already say PRAISE GOD!!!  It will be wonderful to have another pair of hands - and Grammy hand's are extra special.  We have already survived 2 out of town trips that Arturo has had this summer, so it will be nice to not just survive but enjoy time with each other & Grammy.  I am confident that our summer will get better with fun visits & hopefully some more structure in our day - yes, I would love your prayers.

Oh my word! I wish we could have even half that temp here! (its been raining and overcast in the 50's for weeks! where is summer?!) Atleast you have air!! We don't so when it does get hot we huddle in the living room in front of our window unit! I'm so glad your mom will be there to help you out! It will be a girls time with Arturo out of town! I wish I was closer so we could get together- your girls and my boys! *smile
Your doin' awesome Sista and just think.. only a couple more months and then back to school! LOL

It hasn't hardly felt like summer yet here. We've had a few nice sunny days but they are always mixed up with rainy stormy ones.
That will be nice to have your mom there. Grandma's are the best!:)

I know how you feel with a traveling husband, but in my case I only have two kids to keep track of. I don't know how you do it! I am glad that your mom is coming and I hope that you all enjoy your time with her.

From someone who used to live in GA I know what you're going through. GA is frickin hot in the summer. I think an entrance to hell must be somewhere near Atlanta.

Georiga is HOT! I grew up in Miami, FL and it was nowhere near this hot there and at least I could at least go to the beach.
