Goodbye Summer. You were good to us.

I can't believe summer is over. I know it's still hot. But the lazy days that seemed to stretch out before us in early June have now come to an end. School for Abby starts this week. And now we're back to a schedule: pre-school, Dance, soccer, Rainbows, play-groups, MOPS... what was I thinking?

So, before we jump into all that fall will hold, I wanted to take a look back at some of the summer fun that didn't get a chance to make it's way to the blog.

Cue the sappy summer music.

Abby learned to swing all by herself. She was so proud! And so were we!



Cousins came to play.



She attended a VBS at the church where she goes to pre-school. This was the closing ceremony.



A rainy day in June.



These are all my parents' grandkids. All thirteen of them!



"Little Peanut" came to play one day in July.



And they had matching swimsuits! They were not even purchased together.



A picnic with her international play group friends.





I gave Abby the camera one day and she came back with multiple pictures of Cinderella. Here is just one sampling. Doesn't she look stunning?


Well, that's enough random photos for one post. I've got plenty more for another post later on. Aren't you excited?

I must admit I am not very good at capturing pictures. I do the best I can. We still live in Argyle and Cynthia, number 4 went to Kindergarten this week. Josiah is in 7th, Noah in 5th , and Titus in 3rd. The house is quiet .....a great feeling! Love you
