July was a good month. Boring but good. Here’s some of the highlights:
- We set off fireworks on the 4th. It wasn’t anything spectacular but enough for the kids to go crazy for. We also had sparklers, which were a bigger hit than the fireworks.
- We got our money’s worth out of our pool. Unfortunately, it got a hole (in the bottom) and we had to drain it. And, with our luck, it was in the middle of a 20 day heatwave.
- Miss R started doing very well in her horseback riding lessons. According to her instructor and the owner of the barn, she has great form and she catches on fast. She was trotting as of her last lesson!! Unfortunately, we had to put the lessons on hold because her instructor was exposed to COVID at a horseshow. As soon as she is done with quarantine (and gets her results back), we’ll be starting them back up again.
- We found out what was going on with school. 4 weeks of virtual learning followed by either a blended learning plan (and high school is different than middle/elementary) or virtual learning. Miss B and Mr Z are doing the blended plan and Miss R will be doing virtual.
- On the same subject, the school changed the dress code for grades 6-12. Before, the kids had to wear a uniform. Now, its regular clothing. That is the only thing I wasn’t happy about. Why? Because I had already bought the darn uniforms.
I was pretty psyched to get back into blogging after my hiatus. I am still not accepting books for review (and probably won’t until my kids go back to school in person). But I am enjoying reviewing books at my own pace.
Books I Read in July:
A Letter From America by Geraldine O’Neill
Simmer: An Inferno World Novella by Measha Stone (Warning: X Rated and extremely taboo subject matter. 18+ only)
