Going,going,gone ...



Oh summer,how we have loved thee.Our carefree days.Spent lounging around late into the morning,still in our jammies.Watching way too much television.Playing far too much Wii.Long bike rides.Late night movies and book reading by the glow of our booklights.Daily swimming and least we forget, our almost daily Foster donut and Starbuck runs.Mommies tight jeans are certainly reminder enough.We had adventures of all kinds.Family time and church time and friend time.A new house.A new school and a new beginning,brimming with hope and promise and gratitude.And how could we end our summer without a final trip to the beach.A safe haven.A place to become lost in the surf and the sun and the tranquility of just being.So long summer,until next year...

You guys seem to have had a great summer, it's sad when it comes to an end, but I am sure loads more happy memories are going to be made no matter which ever season comes. Zoey seems to love the beach, that video is so so cute, she seemed so excited with the sand, so happy to be there. Loved all the pictures.

I've decided to hang on to summer a little longer. Why do Em and I have to say good bye just because the rest are going back to school?

We still have 6 hours every day to enjoy.

Kisses and hugs!!!

Oh yes we are in fulltime "fall" here. Back to school, soccer, piano, therapies, ooo makes me want to rewind to just a few more weeks at the pool.
Love the first pic of Zoey and the video! So cute!

Letting go of summer and sending the kiddos off to school again is SO HARD! I demand to know where the summer has gone and who took it anyway?!

Cute pics! Hope the new beginnings go well for your family! Hugs!!!
