Tell Me It Isn't "So"!

We had out of town guests last week...it was full of fun and kid "noise"!

This week is truly the first week since the beginning of June where my kids may come to me and say "I am bored!"...it's been so busy!

I have had some time to catch up on emails and start getting dates down...

In my despair...I realized that August is starting to get full of "back to school" things...practices...and a few more practices...camps....

Is it true??

Summer feels like it's coming to an end...quicker than I want....

Please tell me that in my mail pile on the kitchen island is NOT the Lands End Back to School catalogue...

Tell me it isn't "so"!

Time is going crazy fast!

We have already bought supplies and have been shopping for uniforms! Not quiet finished but soon enough.

Tim said...

I know right? It just flies by so fast and before you know it you've had time to do nothing really with them and school is starting again. Its Crazy!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Becky said...

The Dollar Tree had Halloween decor out! eek!

I do love buying back to school stuff though.

Mari said...

Sad, isn't it? I saw my first back to school flyer on Sunday. Why does summer always speed by quicker than winter?

Astrid said...

Oh boy...do I ever feel the same way! And it's been so cool here that it doesn't feel like summer anyway (I shouldn't complain).

I got my Land's End backpack catalogue as well.....sigh.

Summer is going by way too fast.

Sandy said...

NOoooo! I don't even want to hear those words!

Tiffany@eatathomecooks.com said...

Summer is flying by and we haven't really had a total break from school stuff yet. I hope I'll be ready to start back up in a few weeks!

April said...

I know exactly what you mean! My girls start back on Aug. 10th and I'm like an ostrich with it's head in the sand...in complete denial!

squawmama said...

Time goes so fast and the older you get the faster it goes... I have no school kids at home anymore but I know my daughters are feeling the time coming up really fast... Have fun shopping!!!

(((HUGS)))

I know what you mean. When we get back from the beach, it's August! Then tax free shopping for school supplies, clothes. Ahh...where's the pause button for summer?

Jeni said...

We start back August 3rd! I am sad...it goes so fast. We were just in Ohio and most of them don't go back until 28 Aug. Are you in Cincinatti? Something just gives me that idea. We drove through there on our way to Columbus and it's such a neat town.

I like those chairs by your pool. What a fun idea and cheap to paint rocks...guess what my kids will do today or tomorrow.

Busy Bee Suz said...

It is so. :(
When I my kids say they are bored, I give them a dust rag and send them to work!!!

Denise said...

I can't believe summer's almost over and we've hardly done anything. I feel like I've wasted it. At least my kids are starting to excited about the backpacks and school supplies on display.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

I feel the same way - Hobby lobby has their Christmas stuff. I couldn't even look at it.

tales from an oc cottage said...

Wow...I guess so. I don't really ever have a "summer" so, I don't keep track of it, but I did hear an "end of the season" commercial the other day..yikes!

m ^..^

Billy Coffey said...

I made a sincere effort to soak in every hour of every day between June and August, if only to try and make the summer stretch out a bit longer. It shrank instead. Sigh...

Darlene said...

I haven't heard those dreaded words yet....I have a feeling I might next week. Lexi has had the play practice and this week we are on a "stay" cation. I absolutely can't believe how fast August and back to school is coming!!!

duchess said...

Afraid so - the summer has flown by. I don't mind so much since we homeschool & I'm kind of ready to get the kids back on a schedule. Enjoy browsing through that catalog.

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

The summer certainly has blown by. I already see school supplies out in the stores!

Enjoy what is left of the summer.

Lindsey said...

It just flies by way too fast, I agree!

Christy said...

Sandy Toes,

I too, feel like summer is coming to an end all too quickly. I am trying to postpone back to school shopping as long as possible this year.

Obviously from my latest post you can tell that I have been inside too much these last couple of days because I just walked outside and it is humid! I needed to do a little "editing" on my post so thank you for the weather update! Yes, it does feel like summer now!

Have a great day!

Jan said...

This can't be happening. You love this time of year. I hope for all things to go slow for you :)

Jboo said...

Oh yeah -- we got the list of needed school supplies yesterday! Back to school shopping already! Only 1 month left until school starts here! Enjoy the rest of the summer vacay!

Dawn said...

sad... i am not ready to see summer go...

Carrie said...

Betsy said...

Can't believe it has happened so fast.

Domestically Sassy! said...

I feel the same way...it's been so busy and crazy and it's not slowing down any time soon. The summer is almost over!

michele said...

Summer flies by WAY too quickly! But my boys and I have had a BLAST! Enjoy the rest of your summer :)

the undomesticated wife said...

I was just thinking the other day that I can't believe it's almost August!!!!

the undomesticated wife said...

And to the person who said Dollar Tree has Halloween stuff out...Hobby Lobby has aisles of Christmas stuff already!!! Eek! LOL

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I don't even feel like we've had summer here. It only just got warm...my kids didn't get out of school until the END of June...we're headed out of town in a week, and when we get back I have to get everything ready for the kids to be back in class! What happened to the leisurely days of summer?

Krista ~ Bits and pieces said...

You are so right it is going crazy fast~

Love your blog by the way!

LuLu said...

Oh Sandy Toes I feel the same way... I am use to all the summer stuff now and I dont want it to end... I'm not ready to order book bags, supplies etc... or sign the endless amounts of paper work that comes home from school!I don't want pool season to end!

I was telling my husband that this summer seems to be flying by. I haven't blogged much. The past two weeks I've had limited internet access. I've been to Birmingham, Nashville and now Sevierville, TN. Next week it's SC and NC, then back to Mississippi and finally TX. I have visited family and I'm taking Brett to college baseball camps so the coaches can get a look at him. I'll visit on here when I can.

Ruth said...

It is so hard to believe that the summer is almost gone. It took so long for it to arrive here in the NE and before we know it will be gone.

Ms. Toe, I'm afraid time is moving at the speed of light. Summer will soon be a distant drumbeat, but then fall starts with all sorts of exciting things.

I just got bombarded with "Back To School" catalogs! LOL And while I don't have any schoole aged little ones...yet...all of those adorable back packs are so hard to resist!!! LOL

Robin said...

I wish I could say it wasn't but it's coming faster than I would like!!!


Blessings,
Robin

Tricia Anne said...

I agree! This summer is flying by so quickly that I can hardly fit all I had planned to do, in.
I have commented very little during the last few weeks, but I am reading all the time! :o)
Have a nice day.
