summer bits (and bobs)

september 1st.
big kids went back to school (so far so good).
i just filled in the family wall calendar (welp... so full).
leaves are least they are here (we have a LOT of trees).
days are shorter (chickens are broody and molting).
i have coffee decisions to make (hot or cold).

there is no denying it.
we are in a new season.
it's gonna be a good one.
but oh summer how this little family will miss you.

so many summer bits (and bobs).
a little look (photo overload).
shared (cherished).
so much water...lakes, beaches and pools
water toddler play
water family war
garden chats with my mcc girls
healthy backyard bounty
junk food junky...surviving car trips
my summertime passenger "trunk"
gum smacking selfies

nights of summer ball
that transitioned to football pre-season
trikes and twinkle lights

and hot dogs are saved for later

and memories are saved in the quill of a red feather
