It's been a fun, busy, crazy summer.
Trips to the beach, camping, relaxing at the pool, summer basketball, two trips to the emergency room, 5 kids home, not much crafting and lots of peanut m&m's!
We started off our summer right away with camping and then a trip to Hershey Park.
My kids have only been back in school for a couple of weeks. They didn't go back until after Labor Day this year. My oldest started high school and my youngest preschool. Yikes! Tough mom day!
I'm still kinda in summer mode and feel like I can't get back into our school routine.
It's still sad driving up and down our road. The scenery had completely changed and the view is entirely different. We could never see any other roads because of all the trees on the side of the road and now we can see them all. Our communities are still pulling together to help out those affected and it's good to see houses starting to be rebuilt. Sad to see those that have been knocked down and probably won't be rebuilt.
My kids and I just talked to my friend who lost her house-they've rebuilt their garage and will start their house soon. It was amazing because my kids were expressing their concerns and fears to her about the tornado and she was reassuring them and was so positive. I wonder if I could be as strong as some of the people around here who lost so much.
The tornado really affected my kids too. All summer, when we met anyone, the first question my 6 year old asked them was "did you have a tornado on the first day of June?". They are petrified any time it rains, thunders, gets windy.
