We finally made it up north last weekend. It’s been about a month since we were last up there. So it was wonderful to get out of the house and visit with family. The weather was perfect – breezy, sunny and not too warm.
The Uncles’ garden is especially lovely this year with nary a weed to be found. We grilled out and enjoyed some lettuce and onions from the garden with our elk steak, brats and hot dogs.
We were also just in time to catch the tail end of the peonies. I’m so glad I was able to take a few pictures of the flowers before they were finished for the season.
My little girl lost her first tooth over the weekend. She was so excited for the Tooth Fairy to come! It’s hard to believe she starts school in just a couple months! And July 4th is nearly upon us! Where is the time going?
Soon the stores will be busting out the back to school supplies – once the Fourth of July is over.
You know I usually get all twitter-pated over the approach of Autumn, but this year…this year I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m a blender of contradictions right now. On one hand I’m excited for my little girl to start school, make new friends and expand her mind. But as her mommy, it’s so difficult to let go.
It has to happen I know, but it’s that first time that will be the most difficult. We are always together and my heart all ready hurts at the thought of not being around to protect her at all times. I know she has to go out into the world. It’s healthy and normal. I’ll be okay once we are in a routine. I like routine.
For now, I have a couple months before school begins. And now that “things” are getting back to “normal” we can resume our regularly scheduled/unscheduled Summer.
