Summer’s End and Visitors

It seems WAY to early to start school, but in Knoxville most schools start this week.  Kevin had book day today, then first day of school on Tuesday.  He is finishing up his book reports today.  Sad to see summer end but glad he is getting back into a routine and will meet many new friends.   Brian has two more weeks and heads to University of Minnesota Aug. 28.

Tom and I are hauling out boxes (still.)  I have to look back and see if every post these last weeks have included a mention of BOXES at least once  Tom was blessed with his mom’s excellent organization skills, so when he tackles an area (aka the garage today), he gets things organized in a way that helps keep the area tidy in the future.

Another great organizer I know is coming to visit this week, my sister and brother-in-law, Sue and Randy.  They are here for vacation, but I will certainly introduce Sue to our Bonus Room.  This is the “catch all” room that is picking up the lack of a basement, kid cave, basement storage room, and first floor office.  Talk about working triple duty!  Still figuring out where things belong here…we have extra garage space and plenty of closets, so I know Sue can help figure out where the miscellaneous “things” go.

They hit Graceland in Memphis with a drive by Nashville on their road trip from Wisc.  Our fun this week is unstructured but will include sightseeing around Knoxville and surrounding area, some R&R poolside, and this weekend we visit Smoky Mountain National Park and will be staying two nights at a mountain cabin with gorgeous views.

So happy to have visitors to explore the area with!

I was asked by a couple family/friends how to be notified if there is an exciting new post added to the blog.  You can click on the link in the right column and “Follow this Blog” and you’ll be notified of any new posts.  If you are a follower, leave me a comment to let me know if this works.  Thanks for reading!

    I have been checking your blog often, but it also has come across in e-mail form. So I have a couple of ways of learning and enjoying all of your new adventures. Hi to all and Sue and Randy. Wish we could find a way to all get together again like the “good ole days”.

    luv, Aunt B
