Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

I am not ready. I am not ready. Summer’s end angst defined.

Tomorrow we meet Edward and Joseph’s teachers for the new year.


I said I would go through the Greek and Latin vocabulary book with them over the summer.  I even made color-coded index cards.

We learned three words.  I hopes these words and their derivations are what my children encounter when they take the PSAT.

Instead or learning Greek and Latin, we:

Fed dead white mice to rather large Caiman crocodiles at a local reptile store.

I intended to organize my house, structure our days and create nifty chore charts.

Instead we:

Learned that it’s not that difficult to sleep in a damp swimsuit and coverup two, or even three, days in a row since then all you have to do is pop up in the morning, brush your teeth, grab a Rice Krispie treat, and head for the pool or beach.  Such a time saver!

I planned to lose 12 pounds and finally fit into a two-piece swimsuit for the first time since Edward was born.

Instead, I created a self-portrait of myself at the beach as a “shadow” or “shade.”

I think I look like a Sleestack.

I intended on teaching my children that the most quiet, patient fisherman always catches the most fish.

Instead we learned that sometimes the loudest, most active fisherman catches the only fish…

Like it or not, school looms…

I hope you have a great school year! We only made it to the first 3 days of school. Connor had an allergic reaction to Bactrin and Cole got a terrible cold and ran a 103 temp!
I am praying our year gets WAY better!!!
Miss you

You don’t look like a sleestack, but it really made me laugh. 😉 I’m really not ready for summer to end either. It really did speed along at quick clip!

sounds like a fabulous summer to me. I wish we could have shared it with you.

Looks to me like you and your children won in the inevitable trade-off for limited time.

(What is a sleestack?)

Tomorrow means all my family are back in school (including the Hubby-teacher). I will be free again. 😉

Oh, Elizabeth, I know what you mean. I have accomplished next to nothing this summer and my goals were not nearly as lofty as yours. I don’t know what happened, but we did so much more last summer than this one. Of course, it has been hotter than Hades all summer, so the kids haven’t wanted to go anywhere, and frankly, that was a relief to me.

We meet Danny’s teacher Wednesday night. I think I am so much more nervous than he is.

Maybe there was limited Latin learned but at least a good time was had. Catching fish and feeding reptiles – doesn’t get better than that. 😉

And you make quite an adorable and stylish Sleestack.
