Weekly snapshots of life in 2016
These summer weeks are simply going way too fast! I know I should count my blessings considering school has already started in some parts of the US. But a part of me wants to simply press the pause button for now and take everything in — to be thankful, to be in the moment, to be joyful.
A lot of this past week was spent on taking care of Brady who had his operation on Tuesday. It’s heartbreaking to see this little guy navigate around with his little collar but he has been a pretty good sport through it all. I just keep telling myself that we only have “xx number of days” left and then he can go back to life without any encumbrances.
The girls finished one of the camps that they’re doing last Friday. This week’s camp was Fashion Design where they both created pajama bottoms, a skirt (for Ines), and a purse (for Chiara). They had such fun at this camp that Ines is already begging me to do it again next year. This week, both girls will try something different as they go to Theater Camp, which they have never done before so it will be interesting to see how they’ll like it.
We ended the week with a visit to Ocean Grove in the Jersey shore. It’s a quaint little town, just over an hour away from us, with lots of quaint Victorian homes and a friendly, low-key vibe. Despite the sweltering heat, the beach wasn’t as crowded as we thought it would be. We’ve been experiencing a heat wave out here in the East Coast that’s not suppose to break until today so we thought anything that can cool us off a bit would be a good idea.
How about you? How was your weekend?
