Summer Overload

I have been in my final days of curriculum planning since April, but I am hoping to finally order soon.  We have had an unusually busy summer here and it seems our busy season won't end until we go back to school.  

Lets just say I am on summer overload! 

In addition to all of the usual summer fun {seeing friends you haven't seen all year, lots of play dates and outings, Vacation Bible School, etc.} we will be hosting a wedding and reception at our house at the end of the month.  WOW!  We are very excited, but we have so much work to do in just a short 2 weeks.  Can I just say that our Walmart pool still sits on my patio??  Yeah, you know what Im talking about!!

My backyard has to go from this...

To this...

In just 15 days!! Can you see me sweating???  We are really hoping to pull if off!!!  Big Daddy's brother is getting married to a fabulous gal, so we want to make it beautiful for them.  Did I mention just 15 days??  Again I ask, "Can you see me sweating???"

With all of the planning and decorating and getting the house presentable that goes into having a wedding at your house, I have been at an absolute stalemate with curriculum planning!!  UGH!!  I will hopefully place my order in just a few days and then have it all here, so that I can spend the entire month of August preparing!  We won't start officially until after Labor Day because {in other fabulous news} my sister and her husband are taking the girls to Chicago for a little end of summer getaway!!  I'm so excited and nervous and excited and nervous that I can hardly stand it!!! 

Whew...lots going on!!!  But it is all such good stuff!!!!  This has definitely been a summer to remember!!!  I hope to be able to share more as the wedding gets closer!!!  But for now, I guess I better get back to transforming my dry, {hasn't rained here in months} weed infested, {its 147 degrees, I really haven't weeded anything} ant taken over back yard into a perfect wedding wonderland!!

Ta Ta For Now,

P.S.   Has anyone ever heard of or known anyone to use Living Books Curriculum???   I love it and want to use if for history and science as well as some language arts aspects, but I am super nervous because I can't really find anybody out there that has actually used it outside of their forums!!!!  The website is if you want to check it out!!!  I'm so torn!!!  Please help!
