Even though I feel fall creeping in, summer is lingering on here. August and early September are a little like that. One foot firmly planted in summer, while the other takes a step towards fall. Ah, fall. My favorite. As each season starts to wind down I remind myself to not wish it away, but enjoy every last drop. But fall, it is always number one.
Here are a few pictures that feel like summer:
I feel like we have done so many fairs this year! I took this one and edited it on my phone.
My pretty girl. The other day I asked her if I could take her picture. She said she was a little busy. (Baby dolls do not take care of themselves!) A few minutes later she decided I could. I love photographing Cora. When she is in the right mood, it is like she can read my mind. No cheesy smiles, she gives me just what I am after. Our little apple orchard is proving not only to be an overabundant source of apples, but my new favorite photo spot. Doesn't this just look like it fell out of The Secret Garden?
Lately I have been trying to memorize scripture. Um. It's hard. I am struggling a little bit! This mind is very full of things to remember, so it is hard to squeeze more in. Of all the things I need to remember, I know more and more that these words are the most important. I will do it!
The other evening after school Max wanted to give Coconut (the dog) a bath. This dog is a farm dog, and has never had a proper bath. I think she likes to "swim" in the horse tank from time to time, but has never been scrubbed with soap. We put her in and she lasted about 30 seconds. Ada, however, found it to be delightful. Shoes and all.
More and more I am loving toys that 1) aren't plastic 2) are pretty. I love it when the kids pull out something we've had for awhile and it gets lots of play.
I hope that summer is lingering on a little while where you are!
