I've been so proud of Marcus this summer. Our backyard is about 2 hours of work from being completely done!! We will post pictures of everything once it is complete. The flagstone patio looks awesome. It was a wonderful surprise to get to spend the summer together and I honestly don't know how I would have held up without him the entire summer.
Our days of leisure are gone, but I find myself excited for the upcoming year. I can't wait to be around kids again and to see all my colleagues. Even lessening my load of grad classes will come as a huge relief. I feel as though we spent the summer more isolated than usual, but in many ways, I found tons of inspiration and motivation from it. I'm ready to be around the friends I work with and to have another VERY fun schoolyear!
