Can someone tell me what happened to the “lazy days of summer” ?  Why is it you think once summer gets here, things will slow down, I’ll have more time to do things……….but the reality is, my days are so packed that all start to run together!  Last weekend we got thru the graduation party (will share those fun details soon) now this weekend we are off to Summer Welcome at Mizzou, then vacation 10 days after that.  Hopefully July will be the calm after the storm, and before the “she leaves for college” storm.

I hope your summer season is off to a great start!  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen me participating in #30SummerDays .  I got a nifty new little wifi camera, Samsung NX300 that I am LOVING!!  I’m planning to take it on vacation with us later this month.  If you’d like to follow along with the prompts (don’t worry, you don’t have to do every day – just have fun with the prompts or make up your own), just tag your photos with @TidyMom and #30SummerDays …………next month, one lucky reader will have a chance to win one of these cameras for their very own!!
