Lake & Other Randomness

I've clearly been busy as my blog is suffering yet again.  I swear I have an excuse and it's called AP biology.  ::gulp::  I'm taking over the program this year and whoa am I overwhelmed.  To rub in the amount of work I have to accomplish in 3 short weeks, I attended a 4-day summer institute put on by the college board.  Lets just sum it up by saying that I broke into honest-to-goodness tears 2 of the 4 days out of frustration and enormous stress.  Needless to say, I've got my work cut out for me, and I've come to the conclusion that teachers are vastly underpaid, not like I didn't know that before...but now...holy crap!  So every free second I have when the kids are asleep or watching a cartoon, I'm prepping for my school year.  Oh yeah, and training for a marathon.  No biggie.  ugh.  There's also this whole family wedding thingy that's coming up that we are prepping for.  It's gone from a little beach wedding to quite a production, and a week-long vacay.  So we have lots to do.  So I'll work on getting caught up on life (and my lack of enthusiasm for summer) in the next few posts.

Lake time when we weren't triathlon'ing :)
