Is Summer Over Yet?

O.K. This is one mom that wants to get back to a normal routine. We have had a fun summer and can't wait for Jasmine to get here in a couple of days. Alexia and I decided that Jasmine coming is our last big hooray for the summer, then we need normalcy again. Alexia has had a lot of fun and adventures this summer, but some how mom is the exhausted one!

Alexia has been in summer camp with the Penn BASP and they have had so much fun. They have walked to Dairy Queen for ice cream once a week, had theme day parties like Halloween, crazy day, Christmas, and a Hawaiian Party. They have gone to the rec center to swim twice a week all summer. They went to Lost Island (a huge water park in Waterloo) in which Alexia went down lots of big water slides, floated in the lazy river, played in the wave pools, and generally had the time of her life. When she came home she told Brian that it was the best day of her whole entire life! And finally they had a big party last Friday for the last day of summer camp.

You would think with all of this fun and adventure she would be tired, but no she is so excited when she gets home each day that it takes hours to calm down for bedtime. She thinks because it is summer that she need to stay up late every night and I keep telling her that she is in for a surprise when school starts and she is exhausted. I am already there!

All that being said, this is one mom who can't wait for school to start so that I can go to bed before 11:00PM! (I know I sound so old, but yes I go to bed well before 11PM)
