Summer Reflections or Now What?

I haven't written here in such a long time, well before summer holiday began. And we had a perfect one, if not a very different one. I was working half the time, home with the kids until Wednesday when Scott would pick up where I left off. I love my job and am thankful for it, especially now that the both kids are back to school full time.

Our summer was full and often we were looking for down time, but the days keep rushing on. A trip from my uncle from England started things off, which meant time celebrating him as well as Nana and Boppa's big move. Then it was our anniversary, and Scott and I snuck off to Toronto and then Niagara Falls for some time to ourselves and yearly used book shopping. It got hot quick and that got us into the neighbours's pool, they are so good us. A week of summer camp each for the kids, followed by a beach day with friends and loads of day trips to fun places, mainly of course to the library. The best trip however was to Ottawa where we again enjoyed time and the Olympics with our Aunts. The end of that trip was to Montreal, where we surprised the kids with a visit to the Star Wars Exhibit downtown. The summer ended with a perfect weekend for the wedding of Scott's brother and his new bride. It was, like I said, perfect.

So I guess that leaves you wondering. OK, so she was busy. But so was I and I blogged? And it's true, of course I had time. I didn't blog because I didn't really want to. I've come to a crossroads with this blog where I don't know where it should go. Scott made the point that William's getting perhaps too old to have his personal stories and pictures thrown permanently out there for all to see. Of course my computer is chock-full of gorgeous pictures of the two of them that I'd love to share, and I have a little on facebook over the weeks, but maybe the time has come for this blog to either end (say it's ain't so) or become something else, something little different. What do you think? How do you feel about throwing your kids out into the world wide web?

So I agree that my above list of Summer 2012 was brief and rushed but I'm ready to move into fall and see what comes next (although I'm missing the kids something fierce today). I work only part-time, the kids are gone five days now and I am up against a wall (a happy looking wall) with a sign that says, guess there's nothing left to do but write.
