Summer Blues

Summer is ending and I am not happy about it!!! This is not usually how I am come the end of August. By now I’m usually dreaming of apples and pumpkins and sweatshirts, you name it. But summer has been so so good to us. Maybe it’s the amazing weather we’ve had: weather that allows us to have the windows open nearly every day, weather that allows us to go to the pool or park or take walks whenever we want, weather that let’s Eric and I sit out on the patio after the girls are asleep and reflect on our daily blessings and embrace the new struggles in peace. I have loved every. single. minute!

On Monday our routine comes to a brutal halt. Liesel begins 4 year old preschool. She will be going three days a week and (this is the hardest part) she will be eating lunch there. I am trying ( and failing) to not get emotional. But before I fall completely apart, here is a brief look at our summer adventures.
