Summer Endings Then Back To School

It's hard to believe that summer vacation is over....
We enjoyed every bit of our time spent up at the beach.
Here's some of what we did the last two weeks in August:
we spent time playing with friends picked wonderful blackberries at Grandma & Grandpa S's house
made blackberry cobbler's, pies, and even froze some berries for later use
witnessed more beautiful rainbows
went to a fun and fabulous tea party hosted by my sister-in-law Paula
enjoyed this gorgeous sunset while out on the boat one evening
did some antiquing and flea market shopping (I'll have to share my finds later)
The water looked like this the night we left to go home. It was smashingly beautiful! When the sun setting behind us reflected off the clouds, everything turned pink.
A fantastic summer was had by all in our household. We already can't wait for next summer!

- Back to School -
9 days ago Sydney started kindergarten.
She absolutely loves it, and can't wait to go each day. I wonder if it's because of the crush she has on the new cute boy she told me about..... hehe
Daphne started preschool this week. She informed me that her favorite parts of the day were recess and snack time. :o)

Your summer adventures seems to comeout of a book about an ideal family, I'm serious! Too bad it is over now and I can understand why you are looking forward to next summer! Here the weather has been so bad that we all have a feeling that we have missed summer. Let's hope we will have a lovely autumn but until now we have had lots of rain :-(
Have a great weekend with your lovely family!

Karoline, It looks like you have had some really fun times with your family. Your girls are sooo cute. The first day of school is a big event. I had a hard time of it, but I'm doing okay now. I miss them so much, but I get so much done while they are in school. Enjoy your day. Kathi
