Where Did the Summer Go?

Enjoying a bit of  calm before the "summer storm"
I know it's technically still spring, but my mind is already past the summer and into fall! I can't believe as I look at my calendar how it's already getting filled in. I'm still in shock that June is next week - how did it sneak up so fast???

We're heading to VA to visit my parents with my sisters for Memorial Day weekend. Our family loves to write itineraries and our weekend will be filled of 4 a.m. and 5a.m. wake-ups to go fishing and to church. {That was one thing I LOVED about being on my own was finding a church that I could go to in the afternoon! After 18 years of waking up at the crack of dawn for church I was very ready for afternoon services!}

Anyway, I'm sure we'll have fun, but right around the corner is our 2-year anniversary (again I will have no expectations as I've learned the hard way) then July 4, Mr. Love Bird's 30th bday Vegas trip with his BFF (yes, it was MY idea!), BlogHer 2011 (I'm not booked but it's in my calendar, and I'd love to go), a visit to Ohio (trying to time it during the AWESOME Ohio State Fair), then Nia's 1st bday, followed by Toastmasters International Convention (I'm praying Mr. Love Bird and I can make it - it's in Vegas this year) and finally the summer ends with Labor Day Weekend. 

Oh! And between all that we'll have a few BBQ and fondue parties PLUS we're leading a picnic Growth Group at Riverbank Park every Saturday with our church


So that's our whirlwind of a summer done and done!

Anyone else have the same type of summer ahead? How are you coping?
