End of School and June Currently

I'm back!  I went MIA in the blogging world.  I've made a goal for myself to try to post at least once a week during the summer.  We've been on summer break for 4 days.  I have to share my kids last day of school picture.  My youngest, Rope, was not happy that morning.  I like to think it was because school was over and he would be leaving his friends and teacher from Pre-K.  Every time I look at these pictures I just giggle.  One day he will too. 

Here is a side by side comparison of my kids on the first day of school and the last day.  Crazy how much they change and you don't realize it.  I now have a Junior, Sophomore, 8th grader and Kindergartener!

 I had forgotten how much I love reading all the Currently posts and joining in on the fun, so I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy in 4th Grade for her June Currently.

Here is my currently:

This show is quite interesting and really sucks you in!  Watching it makes me feel normal and not so bad about our crazy life!  Plus I'm too tired to locate the remote!

So glad it's summer!  I needed this break more this year than ever!  The last month at school was very stressful and sad for me.  My four closest friends at work (my lunch buddies) are all leaving and going to new schools next year.  I'm feeling very overwhelmed and sad that they won't be there.   Who will I eat lunch with?  I feel like a junior high kid! 

My house is a disaster!  I started my long awaited project of painting my kitchen cabinets and let's just say it's a slow process.  

Definitely wanting a cleaning fairy to show up while I'm asleep and clean things up around here.  Even though it's summer, with 4 kids at home I'm just as busy as I was during the school year!

My husband's job keeps him away from home.  Right now he's working in Minnesota - 18 hours away!  He is only able to come home once a month and it's been 3 weeks since I've seen him!  We miss him bunches around here!

Flipflops are a must for summer.  My favorites are my Yellow Box!

Sunscreen for a pale faced, freckled girl is a must!!

My camera - I am a picture fanatic and I'm constantly taking pics of my kids!  I have 2500 pictures on my iPhone!
