This was another busy week, but we’re settling into a daily routine. Both the Royals love school and I am enjoying some one-on-one time with Clayton in the mornings and Hazel in the afternoons. The week ahead is my long week.

The summer is rushing by, especially with the kiddos in school. I have to remind myself we still have some summer left. The stores are filled with Halloween stuff and gads, even hints of Christmas. Ugh. Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

    Fall is my favorite season, and I’m so excited for all the various events and things coming up. However, I do want summer to stick around for a bit longer -I still need some more pool days!

  2. Lorna

    I can’t wait for fall weather. We’re hotter than Florida right now and I don’t want to cook or do laundry in this heat. I know you are enjoying those little ones when the others aren’t around. Have fun and stay safe!

  3. Lauren @ My Expanding Bookshelf

    I definitely agree that summer is going past far too quickly. I’ve not seen any Halloween things in shops yet (but it’s not as big a thing in the UK), but I have noticed that the supermarkets have started to get the Christmas sweets/candy in.

    One on one time is so great and I’m sure they enjoy it just as much as you do! I’ve gotten so detached from time and dates it seems crazy that we’re crashing towards the end of August. Have a great week!

    I’m glad the Royals are enjoying school. I feel like summer is winding down although we actually have several more weeks of the season and another month at least of the weather.
    I like the cover of the Wish Hunter.
    Happy Reading!

    I have mixed feelings about the holiday stuff on the shelves. On one hand, I hate that they cram the holidays on us so early and all together like that, BUT I was very happy to see the Russell Stovers chocolate marshmallow pumpkins!

    It seems that every year Halloween and even Christmas decorations show up sooner Kimberly! We don’t see them here yet but I fear that once September will be behind us I’ll see Christmas too 🙂

    I always equate start of school with end of summer, too, though yes, technically, it is about a month left. Neat how you end up with time with each of the younger grandkids. I’ve seen fall decorations on sale since July and it is weird.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

    Good to hear you are getting back into a routine and the Royals are enjoying school. I hope you are able to savour the last few days or so of summer. ?

    Glad to hear the Royals are enjoying school. I’m fine with closing in on the end of summer. I’m not a fan of the heat. I’m picking up Uncharted and Maple Leaf Harvest soon. I’ll visit your posts are soon as I get mine up. Happy reading Kimberly!

  11. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    I’m glad the Royals are enjoying school, and you are enjoying time with them.

    As for Christmas in the stores… yes, it’s way too early for that. Even the Halloween stuff probably shouldn’t go up until September. (Personally, I don’t usually decorate for Halloween/fall until the first week of October. Our weather still feels like late summer well into September, and I just can’t see putting pumpkins out until it’s cooler.)

    Although I love Halloween I do swear it keeps moving earlier and earlier! Glad everyone is enjoying school and elbow hugs all around! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely week 🙂

  13. Lisa Mandina

    Glad that the Royals are enjoying school so far! We haven’t officially started till Monday, but I’m already exhausted at my new job. I’m just hoping once the year gets going I’ll get a bit of a break.

  14. Natalie @Natflix&Books

    Today is my last day of freedom – sobs. While I know it’s not true, I feel like it’s fall once school is back. I’m ready for it to be cooler (bit not cold). Happy reading!

  15. Lola

    That’s good to hear you’re settling into a daily routine and that the royals are enjoying school. Enjoy your new books! Wish Hunter sounds interesting. I already read Hellbound Guilds & Other Misdirections and I thought it was another great read. i hope you’ll enjoy it too. Have a great week!

  16. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Glad the Royals are enjoying school! That’s always nice to hear from the kiddos! I’m envious your stores are putting up Halloween stuff! I was looking high and low for it this weekend, but alas, I didn’t find much. I did see some at some shops in the historic district I was visiting yesterday and bought a cute little wooden sign for myself, among other jewelry pieces. Lol.

    Nice new reads! Those are new to me ones. I hope you enjoy them all!

    I tell myself everyday how is it late August already? Fall stuff is rushing towards us it seems like. School starting, first school football game next week. Geez…

    Glad that school started well!

    Have a super week Kimba!
