My Month in Numbers: August

Time to join in Julie Kirk's meme "Month in Numbers" for August. I've really enjoyed playing along with this meme as a way to blog about a few happenings/photos which didn't quite merit their own blog post but which I do want to remember.
12 The number of Henry's classmates who gathered for a going-away dinner. So proud of all these beautiful young people heading off to college and their next adventures. Feeling so blessed that Henry has been surrounded by such a fine group of friends.
20,000 the number of people who attended the wonderful Sunday afternoon concert in Stern Grove.  
19 the number of people in our group, including 3 men named Paul and 2 women named Molly. 
1 the number of people who went to the concert dressed as Flavor Flav.
28 The numbers of exams I graded. 2 classes taught in the new semester.
2 the number of soccer games I went to watch Henry play.
14 days (from today) until I drive the boy to University.
And for the communal count:
There's usually 4 people who live here. We didn't have any overnight guests.
The earliest I woke up was 5:30 a.m.  on Clara's first day of school. Definitely unusually early for me! I do need to wake at around 6:30 a.m. on Mondays to get ready to teach my class, but most other days I get up around 8:00 a.m.

A friend of mine does this and I've always meant to start it. She scraps hers and I think it's a great way to Project Life but not PL ;)

Good numbers this month Rinda. Lots of celebration. Enjoy those days when your boy is home. Uni is such an exciting adventure for you both.

Those two weeks will go in a flash!
A great set of numbers. I love this idea for looking back over the month, it makes me realise that I've done more than I think!
I love Lesley's comment about it being almost project life but not actually being project life.

Melissa said...

Great look at your month! I'm definitely not missing grading exams!

Julie Kirk said...

Hi Rinda - I love that you counted the recurring names!

I'm now imagining all kinds of numbers relating to your university trip ... #of miles away, how many bags packed and crammed into the car! Wishing you a safe trip and the start of a wonderful new adventure for your son.

I've added you to the board now Rinda:

Happy September to you and yours!

Julie :-)
