Summer List Revisited.


Well, it is official - Summer is over. Boy that went fast didn't it? I look back and in a blink it was gone. We spent the summer alternating between the pool and beach,

nestled in between vacations, and interspersed with our good friends.

There was even a bit of time set aside for relaxing...

Our summer list was long and full off good ideas. We didn't get to everything but did manage to play with most of the ideas on here. Here it is...

50(ish) SUMMER THINGS...

Not too bad! It was fun making the list and fun crossing things off as we did them - with no obligation at all to get to everything.

I am sorry to see summer go but fall in MD is my absolute favorite time of year and I am looking forward to what is coming down the pipeline. This week Kindergarten starts and I am sure it will add it's own excitement and complexities to the coming months. Sayonara Summer. I welcome the next four months with open arms.

Good grief! You packed quite a bit in a few short months, and that was supposed to be the relaxing season... Can't wait to see what comes in the Fall
