ONE LAST HURRAH

My children go back to school tomorrow.  I'm in mourning.  We have had the most beautiful summer to play, and it never feels long enough.  It was 90 degrees today so we headed over to our beach for one last swim.  There are no lifeguards on duty anymore, so the kids had free reign of the lifeguard chair.  And YES mom...I went in and it was most refreshing.  After swimming we stopped to get some last minute school supplies and topped it off with icecream.  I'm going to miss those children of mine...

Hard to believe that your summer is already over, but lucky for us :) Hope you cope okay with your kid back at school - thinking of you. xx

That picture of you coming out of the water looks EXACTLY like Jenny.
Glad you were able to celebrate your last day of summer.
I hope you are able to find plenty to keep you busy tomorrow...the sound of a quiet house feels so weird.
Hope the kids love their new school year!

Becky, It looks like y'all had a wonderful time! :0) My kids have been back in school for almost three weeks now... I miss them too. Hang in there and make the most of the weekends! Don't they grow up quick?

Thanks again for your support and words of wisdom. Hope you got my email. Take good care and God bless-

Well, it took the whole summer, but it was WORTH it!! Not a single plain vanilla in sight. Well done, Ortons--you finished summer off right!
(good luck tomorrow)

Drip guards, I like it. So now what are you going to do with your time during the day? Oh, the possibilities.

What a great way to spend the day and end with the delicious ice cream cones. Yum!
