Good Bye Summer . . . A Photo Gallery

As August comes to a close, the winds still blow hot on our faces, the sun still beats down, and we still have to use fans alongside our A/C's to prevent being too hot. Yet school is right around the corner - my children start next Monday, as a matter of fact. So as we say good bye to Summer, 2010, we get to look back on all the memories we made.

This summer we . . .

Lost a Patriarch

Gained an Aunt and Sister-In-Law (and cousins)

Sailed the Lake
Got a massive sunburn

Replaced a Water Heater

Lost some teeth

Had a first boat ride

Learned to Ski

Played with sparklers
Played with more sparklers . . .
And learned we weren't too fond of sparklers . . .

We ate lots of Pizza

Had fun at VBS

Had our first VBS

Learned how to light fireworks

And Became a teenager

This summer has been filled with magic, wonder, fun, good times, and even some bad times. But all in all, it was a summer that I know none of us will ever forget!

Hope you all have a wonderful school year!

Oh, this is so sweet. Ouch - what a sunburn! I got a horrible sunburn one summer and later on the sunscreen ever since. Those are so painful.

Hope your family gets off to a great start this school year!

Amy - thanks! I've actually seen a few more blogs with this before, so the idea isn't mine *sheepish blush* LOL.

Laura - Aw . . . Thank you sweetie! So is yours!

Big Fat Mama - I still have a tan line where the sunburn was and the sun burn was from the first week in June. I did use sunblock - I actually wrote a nasty letter to the sunblock manufacturer about their defective product!

Thanks for coming to my blog! I am NOT sure of the song with the lyrics? My kids help me set up those things. I think it is from a celtic album. (probably doesn't help)
