Summer in a Nutshell...

How do I begin this post? I've been gone for so long.

See, I thought I would get a class out of the way during summer vacation. Well that class (English 102) took up most of my summer. Darn class.

Anyway, I'm back...and here is my summer in a nutshell...



It began with a homework burning ceremony. Followed by roasted marshmallow.




Lots of time in the pool with the neighbor kids.




Lots of swimming in our undies...because we can. ;-)






Fun in scout camp.








Picking up creepy crawlies.





My attempt at growing a watermelon garden.





Visiting my favorite Aunt on the 4th of July.







A quick trip to Universal Studio's.






And a cruise in the Caribbean.


Well, that's it...summer's over.

Bring on the fall leaves, sweaters and hot chocolate.

Okay, who am I kidding.

Summer isn't over until October here.

I do have one fall decoration out...just to hurry things up a bit.

Welcome back! Been wondering how school was going!

Yup, I'm ready to start digging out fall stuff or making some new stuff to hopefully induce a little cooler weather.

Hope your fall is blessed!
