Summer is ending…

We are back from a glorious week at the beach….

Where we spent time soaking up lots of sunshine and sea air…

Boogie-boarding in the wonderful waves….

Playing all day long with Daddy in the surf….

And in our pool….

Building sand castles….

Digging for treasures….

Searching for shells….

Taking in the local wildlife….

Discovering that our best friend picked out a swimsuit in the very same fabric!

Posing for gratuitous beach photos for our parents….

Enjoying the beauty of God’s creation….

Perfecting our a-MAY-zing skillz! (don’t you think this shot could win an award or sumpin’?)

Reconnecting with precious friends….

Drinking copious amounts of Gatorade….

And eating way too much good food!

Even time spent in the kitchen is fun when you are at the beach with dear, old friends!

SO thankful for this sweet break from our normal routine.

This week we are busy with back to school parties, school shopping, meeting teachers, and getting ready for….

THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

    Ah, that was a great review. Thanks for the reminder that summer was wonderful (though we managed to vacation a few hundred miles apart).

    Two days to Autumn…
