End of Summer

This weekend marks the official end of summer and the change of season is very evident in the air outside. The summer went by so fast and I think for my sanity that was a good thing. The kids had a great time down the beach and stayed busy but I admit I was exhausted by all the togetherness and lack of structure. The boys played baseball every morning and did swimming lessons after that. The girls enjoyed their time on the beach and learned to really love the water, even putting their faces in to blow bubbles. Addison went with the flow and even dipped her toes in the water.

We finished off the summer with a family trip to Storyland which was a huge success. It was perfect for every age and we all enjoyed spending time together up in the mountains!

The summer winded down and we have settled back into our routine here at home. The boys are now into their second week of a new school year. I can't believe Jameson is a fourth grader and Cameron is in first. The transition has gone pretty smoothly J is excited about his class and Cameron has done such a great job getting himself up and ready for the bus. The girls do miss their brothers while they are gone all day but it is nice having some time with them alone and we are certainly finding ways to stay busy! We are all excited for Fall and all that it will bring...
