The trouble with passports---

Is really two fold if you ask me.
#1.  It takes and act of congress and two littles present in the middle of a school day
#2.  Everyones first question is "are you going somewhere exciting!"

Whew.  No we aren't going anywhere, not in the next 2 weeks, or the next 2 months that would require a United States passport (and yes I do swear this before all of the people in the line at the post office behind my family -1 little member with strep throat.)  Nice.  Nope. Nada.

Anyway, in typical Culpepper fashion  this year is off to a weird start...seems like we almost didn't loose speed from spring enough to soak in summer and we jumped right back on the crazy train-which brings us to now.
Murphy is a bit out of sorts because I am not taking him to Madonna..."please take me to my school today."  Ugh thank goodness its short lived, right?  I may go over there and help them build it myself!  And Tinky well is typical her happy place.  A happy little soul who cries sometimes because her "friends are so sweet it makes her heart so happy she feels sad."
And then there's work...hmmm.  Not sure what to think about that right now.  Its making me think about using those passports for sure!
I was going to cut back on a lot of things this summer and this year...hahahaha.  Things picked up quite a bit this summer...leaving me feeling kind of ...torn, and defeated.  I didn't get the bucket list done, I didn't really scratch the surface of the list.  That. makes. me. sad.
This summer I had in my mind I would not over schedule the littles, in fact they each got one week of camp and that was that.  Well, until I had to work everyday...ENTER SAWAH.  The Poseys are precious friends of ours and Sarah, one of their 7 kiddos watched my kids A LOT.  The Poseys are life savers!
Add a little splash of drama to that and voila one heck of a summer...leaving me so hungry for more.  More time with my littles more time with our family, more fun, more pool , more energy, more pouring into their little tanks, just more.  Which brings me back to the sometimes I make these plans and more often than not God says...not so fast...thats not MY plan.  That got me to thinking, you never know maybe we will use our passports...maybe the effort will all make sense one day...just think, The Culpeppers taking this show on the road.
