Seriously...that's it???

Summer's over? Just like that? I didn't even get really hot or anything. Barely remember running the air conditioner. What happened? It can't seriously be over, can it? I don't want it to be.

We stayed so busy that I never really felt like we had a summer. It got hot for about one week and that's it. The girls wore flip flops and shorts plenty. And they even managed to get in their bathing suits a time or two, but I still just don't feel like we had a normal summer.

Wonder if that means we are in for a REALLY cold winter? I heard on the radio the other day that the Farmer's Almanac says it's going to be super cold, but not lots of snow. Grrrr. If it's going to be really cold, I want TONS of snow!!

Oh well, at least fall sports are in full swing! We've got 2 weeks of golf matches left and cross country is super busy right now, too. Syd doesn't have much free time between the two, but she is putting her best effort forth in both of them. She ran her first two XC meets this week. The first one was this weird "medly" thing where some people run 3K, some run 4K and some run 5K. Syd ran the 3K and her time was about even with what she ran in 6th grade! LOL She wasn't too proud of that! Then Saturday she ran in an invitational and her time for the meet was 26:23. I was totally expecting her to be around 30:00 since she really hasn't been running as much as she normally would, so I was surprised to see her running towards the finish line when she did.

Sammie is staying busy swimming, riding her 4-wheeler and with gymnastics and cheer. I think she rode her 4-wheeler more on Saturday, Sunday and today that she has since she first got it! I noticed today that she was getting a little too daring for my taste. There's only so much a helmet can protect you from. I finally made her park it for the night!

This coming weekend is the Renihan family reunion. I can't wait. My brother, Chris, and his family will be in from Iowa and I can't wait to see them. My SIL, Margie, and I always have a few good laughs and it will be great to see Sarah and Topher...I can't even remember when I saw them last, but they are all grown up now! Can't wait to take some pics!

I guess that's it for now. I'm sad to see this long weekend come to an end.
