Wow! Has it really been over two weeks since I last posted on my blog? I guess that's just the way summer goes. Actually, I have been keeping pretty busy running Ian around and I've been spending more time in my scrapbooking room than on the computer. Throw in a trip back to visit family at the beginning of the month and, well, July pretty much flew by without me really knowing it.
Anyhow, it hasn't just been quiet on this blog, it is quiet in my house right now. Rich left this morning for his annual trip to the IFT conference. This year it is in Chicago so at least he didn't have to travel very far to get there. He left this morning with a couple of co-workers.
Even stranger though is that Ian is away at Cub Scout camp. This is the first time he has ever gone away somewhere longer than one evening without a family member being present. Though he is only 40 minutes away, I am a very nervous Mom and tons of things are rushing through my head. I know he is in very capable hands though and right about now, they are probably gathered around the campfire roasting marshmellows and having a blast. One of the chaperones has a camera with him and has been insructed to take as many pictures as he humanly can.
So, it is just Kyra and I for the next couple of days. Am I that boring that she was already looking for her Daddy tonight? Probably not, but routine is routine. As for me, now that she is in bed, I'm going to sit back and enjoy the relative peace and quiet.
