During the month of August, I am joining The August Break, hosted by Susannah Conway. I am going to take and post one daily photo to my Instagram and Tumblr. Then, on Mondays, I will aggregate the week’s photos here. See Week 1′s photos here, Week 2′s photos here , Week 3′s photos here and Week 4’s photos here.

Omigod, you guys, this week. This week almost got me.
Note to future self: the last week of August will always be crazy, as long as I work at this college. Most colleges use Labor Day as move-in day and start classes on the Tuesday after Labor Day. My school does it a week before, so move-in day for non-first years was Saturday of last week and classes started this Monday. This means, of course, that this week included opening convocation (in 95 degree heat), the president’s welcome to the year reception (in 95 degree heat), and a general influx of work as faculty and staff have kicked it into high gear. Plus, it was our wedding anniversary, which included a family date night. And then I fell over.
But, I did complete The August Break with 31 photos in 31 days. I may have taken 4 photos last night, during our evening walk, but dammit, I did it. Last time, I think I only made it through half of the month. Back when I didn’t have a child and I thought my life was busy. Now I know.
I don’t think I’m going to do an August Break wrap-up post. I think I’m just going to drop the mic here and walk out, if that’s okay with you.
