Summer is starting to wind down into fall, and I see the abundance of the summer all around, from the huge overgrown gardens to the happy, fat animals running around. I also feel like we have had a very full summer too – full of fun and family and good times. Not all of course, but mostly. I am starting to think about school starting in just a few weeks, and our family rhythm changing, and I am looking forward to these new autumn adventures. But, it is still summer right now, and we are going to continue to make the most of it while we can!
We are still loving our breakfasts outside – although I had to start putting my coffee in a tray to stop the katydids from leaping in to their deaths! We have been reading a lot (picture book post coming up next week!), and watching the world go by from our front lawn. We also sit out here in the evening, and wait for Billy to come home. I love that time of day too – our whole neighborhood is out in the front yards, kids playing, parents sitting out, talking to each other. I love a sense of community!
We went to my little niece’s birthday party – a dinosaur rainbow party, which was super fun. The kids had a great time!
In these last few weeks we have picked peaches, made art together, explored and found new cool places..
We had a date night bike ride, and set out little happy boats out for a sail…
Saw some bugs and insects and enjoyed our new favorite snack of Tillamook vanilla and these yummy flavored maple syrups.
Our August has been full of little moments – how has your month been going? I’d love to hear!
And if you saw the post right before this, that is now deleted, I published my rough draft and I hadn’t meant to! Lol.
