It's been a busy summer.  It's been a short summer.  The kids start school on Wednesday- I can't believe it!  Jeremiah will start preschool- we debated about whether or not to send him, but he seems to really want to go to school, so we decided it was time!  All my babies are growing up :) We've had a fun summer with lots of camping, swimming, & playing outside.  

Josh lets the kids ride in the back of the truck through the campground (not on main roads, of course!!)  I guess it's no more dangerous than a hay ride?? It keeps 'em quiet though.

 I got tons of black raspberries this year.  Wish I would have frozen some, but they made such delicious fresh pies, I just didn't have enough to freeze…maybe next year!
This is what my backyard might look like if we didn't mow… I think I like all of the wildflowers.  I'm sure Elijah would be happy about that.

It's been such a cool summer, the pansies have lasted since March…it's the end of July!  I wonder if they'll last until the fall?

We had a great picnic downtown this year for the 4th of July. 

Little boys know how to make a fire.  Not sure if that is a good thing or not.  

Enjoying some back yard races.  

And a backyard cookout with family

Spring Mill State Park with friends

Enjoying the day

My Zinnias are finally blooming!

And the garden…we have had so many green beans this year!  It's been great!  

SAY CHEESE!  I've enjoyed the summer off with the kids- looking forward to what's in store for this upcoming school year and beyond!
