End of Summer Blues

I've got the End of Summer Blues. I was appropriately named because summertime has always been my favorite season of the year. I love basking in the sun, swimming, snow cones and ice cream, late evenings with friends, various trips, 4th of July, camps, no school and less of a schedule! This summer did not disappoint. We were busy, but we had a lot of lazy days too.  I can't believe that August is over and YCW starts back next week along with a busier schedule again. I do look forward to cooler fall days. 

Here is our August at a glance. We. . .

. . .had fun at Carly's wedding and reception at the Horseshoe Bay resort.

. . . dressed up fancy with cousin Carly.
(Pierson and Ava were in the wedding.)

. . .spent time with aunts and cousins at Carly's Bridal Luncheon.
. . .dug in the sand with "LeviWoll" at Horseshoe Bay.
. . .splashed around at the Eastland Water Park!

. . .read books with Grandma Ruby.

. . .played with friends
. . .enjoyed a late night Rangers game with dad.

. . .visited Julia and the girls in Fort Worth.

. . .started a new Pre-K program called Stepping Stones. 
(In this photo with Teacher Sherri, Ava is already
 dressed up after just walking in the door.)
. . .enjoyed a wild and windy kick off to the ACU football season!

We are looking forward to what the fall will bring-- two birthdays, a zoo party, new teachers and classrooms, Homecoming, more football, the pumpkin patch, and dressing up for Halloween!  (In my next post, I will write about my sweet husband and a surprise birthday trip.)

The summer did go so fast! I'm not as sad as I usually am this time of year though since I'm not going back to teaching and will get to spend more time with you and your kids!

love the picture of pierson & levi. they are two peas in a pod!
and i am cracking up because you are calling 'Horseshoe Bay' by the name of 'Feather Bay'. which sounds nice too....but just not quite right! : ) haha
