Ah, here we are in the dog days of summer! No more lacrosse. We went to swim team in the morning. I played tennis one morning with Christian, Julie and Rebekah. All the other days I walked/ran with Spot and Emma and her dog, Olive. We got free lunch at Timuquan then just sorta hung out the rest of the days. Sometimes there were play dates here and at friends' houses. The start date for school has been pushed back to August 20th and the RNC was moved out of Jax so that was a lot of chatter this week. I was a 'lady of the night' this week (according to Phil). I had book club on Monday to have a frustrating conversation about "What's Not Yours is Not Yours" since none of us could follow it. But the orzo salad Rachael made was incredible! Tuesday, we had a new member meet and greet for TCC. We're sponsoring a few couples so we got to chat and have a cocktail. Little bit of drama there, but it all worked out okay. I rushed home to get set up for my MOPS girls night. I am worried about some of these moms with babies- with no play dates or much interaction, they are loosing it. So, we did a porch girls night, spaced out. I think these moms really needed a night out! It was nice! Wednesday I did the ladies night at TCC. The pairings were bad, but I won a lot and got to play with some new people so I was good with it. Thursday, Ellie and I got Chinese food and watched Vampire Diaries together. She needed some extra love this week. She's been so helpful! Friday, her friend had a movie night in the pool at TCC. I took the littles home so she could stay. It was a sweet party. Tracy and Rachael met up with me for a nightcap. Saturday we went to my parents for a fun day. Phil took the kids and cousins tubing, while my parents, sister and I enjoyed some liquid sunshine with Aunt Del's amaretto. We met the VanWies for happy hour at O'rsay (the best deal in town!) and serendipitiously ran into the Norrises! I've been wanting to get Ann Marie and April together for months! We progressed to the rooftop of Black Sheep and then "VDub's Pub". This morning we went to mass, then breakfast, then tennis with the Kidds (great addition!) A dip in the pool to cool off then home for quesadillas. I had the great idea of resetting my passcode on my phone last night before bed. The kids keep taking my phone to TikTok and text their friends so I'm always resetting my passcode. Well, this morning I forgot the new code! I had so many failed attempts that I was permanently shut out. Thank you apple for your amazing security settings. I finally had to reset everything and have to start from scratch. So, if you texted or called me today, I may not be ignoring you!
