Heat Wave

There is a heat wave here in the great Midwest. Just a couple of weeks ago we were having unusually cool weather and now it's been in the mid to upper 90's for about a week and it's supposed to continue for another week at least.
Here where I live we are preparing for our County Fair to start next week. We all hope that the heat will disappear before then! My daughter is counting the days until the fair starts. She loves everything about it. We have one of the biggest county fairs in our state. This will be the first year in many that my husband isn't competing in the Demolition Derby. Since he started his own business in May he hasn't had the time or money for this hobby of his.
We are also counting down until school starts. My daughter will be riding the school bus to Kindergarten this year. I asked her the other day if I was allowed to cry on her first day of school and she told me no! I don't know where the last 5 1/2 years have gone. It's also a terrible year for her to start school. Our local school system is in a major transition period because of failed school levies. They shut down two buildings and integrated all grades into the same buildings rather than by where you live. It's a real mess and there is a lot of controversy going on. I'm hoping things clear up before next year or we may have to consider some schooling changes.
I hope everyone is enjoying their last few weeks of summer!

I know we just moved to Florida and back home in NC they are experiencing 100 degree days.. I was like hey I thought that was our cool state hehe.

My little girl is going to be going to preschool five days this year and I know I will cry then and can't even think about next year yet :(

Here in TX they have forcasted 100-102 degree days for us for about the next 7 days! But, these past couple weeks have been the first "real" summer days we have had (heat wise) so far this summer. There has been so much rain this summer, and it has kept everything pretty cool until now! It sounds like it must be like that all over the country!

I hope everything goes well with your daughter's first year of school, and that things get worked out well with the buildings! I know, it must be a sad, but exciting time for you!!

Ahhhh, I feel your pain on the heat! Here in OK (where there's a certain major sporting event taking place outdoors) we are sweltering! Paying the price for all those days of rain, although I think it wasn't enough to keep my flowers alive!

It's been really hot here too.

Take lots of pictures and video. It doesn't get any easier with other children! I cried when all three of mine started school. I got tears when they walked away for the first time, but waited to have a full-blown cry until I was in the car. My husband knew it would be hard for me, and took a vacation day on each of the three times. He took me out to eat, and shopping. Anything he could do to help lessen the blow.
