Dog Days

School starts tomorrow morning for Cameron – 4th grade.  He has the same teacher as he did last year which is great all-around, especially because in the history of cool teachers, there has never been a cooler teacher than Cameron’s and now he’s got Mr. Cool for another whole year.  Cameron feels like the BMOC.

It’s hard to go back to school when it’s still so hot and summery outside though…because it’s August and it’s…well it’s always hot when the kids return to school, right?  Dog days?  Cicadas still busy in the fields and sunscreen a factor before they head off to catch the bus, no?   It’s what we’ve been used to, but here in the GERMANY?  Yeah, not so much.

Right now it’s rainy for about the 16th day in a row and holy cow, it’s frigid.  August frigid, that is.  Temps are right at this moment reading an even 50 outside, which is one degree away from it being in the 40’s.  Can you imagine?   It’s not even a fluke either – it’s been only in the 60’s for the last couple weeks with an occasional 70 here and there.  For the most part, I love it.  I love that Germany is pretty much Spring and Fall with 3 weeks of OMFG on either end.  This is my weather, but 50?  Holy crap.

Paul’s birthday is also tomorrow – happy, happy!

  1. i’m lovin’ the late summer preview of perfect autumn weather (80’s, high pressure blue skies, NO humidity). no kiddies to send to school, or hubby to celebrate, so i’ll throw the pup in the jeep and wander aimlessly….

  2. Hope Paul (and you) had a very happy birthday this year. I will never forget your 40th and the lawn decorations!!! The boys look so big, esp. Griffin. I cant believe a whole year has gone by…we still miss you here in Dayton 🙂
