Well, it's that time of the year already. School begins for another year. Always makes me a little sad for the kiddos--I forget what it was like (pretty long ago already), but it just seems like such a huge adjustment going from a carefree lifestyle of going outside whenever they choose, barefoot and fancy free, to sneakers and backpacks and homework. I know it's a necessary thing--we all need to learn. I guess that's what makes summer vacation all the more special. Makes it a little bit easier sending them on the bus with their Grandpa--I know he'll be taking good care of them. Keep your eyes on the road Grandpa ;-)
As we reflect back on our summer, it makes me smile. While we didn't do any huge trips this year, we definitely had lots of quality family time hanging out here on the farm--splashing in the creek, campfires, picnics and late summer nights just being outside enjoying the beauty of the stars and fireflies and all God's creation. Makes me look forward to next summer already!
