right around the corner

I've got some recently finished projects to share....soon.  Really, they are just around the corner and if I could just turn that corner, I'd get them posted.  But we're switching gears and heading into our school time routine and for some reason that just seems to stall me out.  It's all part of easing into the new routine.  Eventually I'll get moving again and when I do, I'll show you what I've finished up.    In the meantime, I'll leave you with some photos of our summer's end.....
[Kristyn came to visit. Whoo Hoo! We had a wonderful time catching up and making new memories- here we are heading out to dinner and to see the movie The Help]
[beautiful veggies from Kristyn's mom and dad ~ Thanks Jo Ellen and Howard. 
We've gobbled them all up!]
[John Samuel and Connor scootering down the street~ John Samuel was thrilled to have Connor here!]
[boys in shopping carts at the fabric store....a new project was in the works]

[a day at Greenbrier lake, playing and paddling]
[measuring and cutting...sewing, measuring and more measuring]
[tubing on Lake Meade....that's Maggie and her friend, Michelle]
[sunset on the lake and a very wonderful summer]
So, that's how we've been wrapping up our summer days.....I hope your summer is ending on a beautiful note as well and that you turn the corner into autumn with plenty of grace!

That's all good fun! And how nice that you got together with Kristyn. I always end summer with a tear in my eye -- I don't do that with any other season, but for some reason summertime is such a wonderful memory-making time.

Thinking of you.

It's always a little sad, saying goodbye to summer........looks like you made some great memories to treasure.........and just think, you get to do it all again next year.

Love the picture of the boys sat in the trollies amongst all that fabric.

Oh what wonderful memories here!! My favorite picture of the entire trip...you and me together!! Can't wait to post our project and update everyone on your necklace!! Love the boys in the carts...what will we do with them when they don't fit anymore? Our summer is quietly winding down, and we'll soon be gearing up and turning corners as well.

So glad you got together with each other. It's always fun and refreshing to gather with a kindred spirit friend. Did the movie hold up to the book? And I know about routines being upset or should I say changed...our homeschooling starts next week!
