Getting Caught Up

So yes, I really am back.

Honest.

I'm just trying to figure out where to start.

You see, part of me feels that by writing about the present, I'm giving short shrift to the best summer we've had in years.

I never wrote about all the summer baseball-- or those 15 amazing days out east bonding with my siblings and their kids.

Or the swimming, fishing, and quirky fun we had in northern Wisconsin with friends.

I never even mentioned the wonderful (but way too short) visit from Zachary.

Soooo... in an effort to clear the deck, here's a three minute taste of what you missed:

Looked like a wonderful summer.

Hi, Sandra! What a wonderful video. You are quite the artist (I've always thought that). The kids are so big. I had to look again when I saw Evan because she looks just like you! Looks like a great summer. Take care.

If I'd had half as much fun as it looked like you all had this summer, I would have been as far away from the "tubes" as you've been. Glad it was such a good break for you and your family. And when did your son grow an extra foot tall?

Sandra Miller said...

Colleen-

Neither did I. :-)

Jim-

Yes, we did indeed-- and thanks, I think so too.

Kassie-

Thanks. :-)

Vivian-

Glad to be back.

Now I just need to find out what everyone else has been up to... :-)

Jodi-

Thank you. :-)

It was great-- even though we didn't make it to SD (went east instead).

I'll have to tune into your blog to help us plan for next summer...

Sarah-

You know, that extra foot seems like it happened overnight.

Really. :-)

What an excellent video/photo montage. Thanks for sharing so much of the fun you all had this summer. (And who's the singer?)

Have a wonderful fall and it's good to see you back.

Sandra Miller said...

Thanks, Bernard.

Oh, and the song is "Shut Your Eyes" by Snow Patrol.

I love that tune. :-)

Donna said...

Looks like it was a wonderful summer. What a great video!

Molly said...

Great video! Won't it be fun to sit around with the kids when they're adults and play that video?!

I can't wait to hear about Joseph's awesome week at camp.

Hope the kids are settling into the "school groove."
