The End of Summer

Summer is officially over. The kids are back in school, the weather is cooling down, the summer frenzy is ending and the school one is beginning.
 
I planned so many times what I wanted to say on my "I'm back!!" blog post, but I'm not nearly as organized as I like to think I am. And whenever I tried to focus, the rush of it all filled my brain.

So the rush is what you get. Because so much happened this summer. SO MUCH! (and honestly, this is the abridged version):

Life Stuff:

  • Moved to Oregon
 

  • Entered my first ever county fair (with my awesome cinnamon twists)
 
 
  • Won 2nd prize in the county fair (I thought this deserved its own bullet point)
 
 
  • Made hand-shaken ice-cream with my kids (4th annual, baby!)
 
 
  • Canned actual fruit (the lids sealed and everything!)
 
 
  • Attended my first-ever crawdad cook-out (yep, they just lay it all out on the table)
 
 
  • Painted a painting (can you tell which one's mine?)
 
 
  • Spent time with family
 
 

 
Book Stuff:
 
 
This Summer has been such a learning curve. I won't prattle on just yet about all the things I learned, but hopefully in the future.

In the mean time, what awesome things did you do this summer?

Hi Janet - you have been doing lots ... moving is a big thing! Congratulations on the book, but also the cinnamon twists, the kids making icecream and cleaning themselves in the lake! Then the jam .. and you've had time for some fun time with the kids - have a peaceful Autumn, once you've totally settled down ... cheers Hilary

Well, I read a really good ARC and blurbed it. ;)

The highlight of our summer was hosting a French teenage girl for 3 weeks. We took her to many of the local sights and touristy things we don't normally do ourselves. She was a lot of fun, and we miss her!

Wow, sounds like you had a very eventful summer. Mine was filled with aging parent problems from both sides (so fun, let me tell you...) and dental problems. I'm glad to be in a new season!
