The weeks are just whizzing by, and I'm having a hard time getting my head around the fact that it's already August. We won't be taking our summer vacation until the end of the month; it's so late this year, but there are a million and one reasons why, not the least of which is that our littlest family member can't wear sunscreen until he's six months old, which he will be on the 19th. Because we're headed to the ocean, we want to make sure he's well protected and can spend some time on the beach with us, so it's worth the wait.
We still have a few things on our end of summer checklist to attend to, so it's just as well we'll be around home for a few more weeks. This weekend, we're off on two different day trips, plus we're piling the boys - including the baby - into the van and heading out to the drive-in. While I get things packed up, I'll leave you with a few of the links that caught my eye this week. Have a wonderful (long!) weekend.
