Good Intentions


As of last weekend summer was "unofficially over".  The last week of August was the first week of school and I have blogged about none of it.  Not even the last day of Kindergarten, where I failed to notice that school got out early that day and a classmates mother had to pick HT up from the bus stop.  My good intentions to write about it all have been lost in the busyness of summer, what with swim lessons,


VBS,


vacation,

"Wook at me, I'm doing nuffing!"

a wedding,

anniversaries and house hunting our days are full and night time comes too soon and some days not soon enough.  Not that there wasn't anything to say, just not the time to do it justice or so I have thought.  I know that some of you have missed my posting and I'm pretty sure some of you have forgotten all about me.  You, like me, probably like to read something of substance, or be entertained, to have a chuckle or at least something to make you think or to smile, in pictures or in words.  That being said, if my stated objective in blogging is to keep an online scrapbook of sorts, I am failing miserably. And as you can see I have lots of pictures to share.

We have said good bye to friends who moved away, visited with old friends home for a weekend.


We have been to the zoo, the aquarium and countless parks.




Dipped our toes in the ocean and ran through sprinklers in the back yard.


Played pee wee baseball and watched how the big boys play.




Watched the fireworks on Independence Day and set off a few of our own.

We have traveled near and far to visit relatives and friends and I would be remiss not to thank them for their hospitality and generosity.


We truly enjoyed our time with each and every one of you and left wanting and wishing for a little more time.

And just so you know this post has taken me the better part of today to compose and edit all these photos.  No wonder I don't blog much.  Then again, maybe if I did a little more regularly one post wouldn't be so time consuming or so painful (painful for me anyway, I hope it wasn't too painful for you).

Sydney! I'm SO GLAD you're back!! What a beautiful summer you've had! Sometimes I think we just need to focus on living our lives rather than documenting them. You guys packed a lot in!!

How are the boys transitioning back to school? It was a rough go for all of us this year. Too much summer fun! :-)

Hope to see more of you guys this Fall! :-) You are a wonderful photographer.

I love your pictures and your blog. I'm the same about blogging infrequently. I like what someone said above about focusing on living our lives vs. documenting them. Thanks for the update and let's keep in touch.
