At the beginning of the summer I committed to live it up this summer. To swim and picnic and enjoy the sunshine without regret when the days became cool. I can say now that I am completely satisfied with our summer adventures. And the joy of such satisfaction is the way that I can welcome Fall with open arms. Because frankly, I'm exhausted. I'm ready for a slower pace and a daily routine. I'm ready for squash soups and college football Saturdays. And I'm ready to leave a week from tomorrow for a week-long vacation with Richard without children. (I take that back, I'm not exactly ready for that.)
Here is a photo recap of our summer days. It's enough pictures to make up for months of non-blogging, but only about 2% of the pictures I took all summer.
