This summer has been the absolute best. Bestest ever. I look back at these pictures like, "how in creation did we ever do all that??" We did. We seriously lived it UP this summer. I'm feeling a little hungover from a week at the beach and having to dive head-first into real life. This week is co-op classes, boy scouts, ballet, Awana, and dipping our toes into school.
Hang on, though...before we light the pumpkin scented candle. Let's reminisce for a minute or two and relish in what was Summer 2012...
Tree climbing in South Dakota:: Carousels:: Twist Cone:: Jack's first DS:: Robin and I, bartending:: Camping:: Reuniting with Sister:: Jack is 7!
Outer Banks 2012:: Beckster and moi:: Shelling:: Jockey's Ridge:: Pretty shells:: Mama's 30:: Currituck Lighthouse
Besides August's rendezvous, July and June weren't too shabby either.
Ice Cream Man
But that said, I'm ready for what's next. Ready to sharpen pencils and buy pumpkins...make some apple butter and eat it on fresh bread.
I'm lighting that pumpkin candle now.
Farewell, endless summer 2012...we have loved you.
