We are in Texas. School starts next week. The Dude turned 6 and I inadvertently invited 30 children over to my house for a party. I did not know 90% of them, but that's neither here nor there. I am a veteran of accidentally inviting hoards of children to birthday parties.
I will get back to regular sporadic blogging once school starts. Spoiler alert: I'll be a blubbery mess.
PS - Our Wisconsin house is under contract again and should be closing in the next weeks... fingers crossed!
