Nearing the End

Cherry Picking_
When summer gathers up her robes of glory,
And, like a dream, glides away.
- Sarah Helen Whitman

Cherry Picking_-2

It doesn't seem possible but our Summer break is almost over.
In Wisconsin our Summers are surely not taken for granted,
after our long Winters.

Cherry Picking Storyboard Aug 2013

School starts next week.
Supplies have been purchased and still need to be labeled.
New school clothes and shoes are ready to be worn.
I do love the routine that the school year brings to our family
but a part of me will miss having them home
during the day.
We've had a fun Summer!

Cherry Picking_-3

Taken a few weeks ago towards the end of our vacation in Door County.
We've had several Summer trips up to the peninsula over the years, and this is the first
time the cherries were ready to be picked.
So cherry picking we went...
Will found what he called
'a magical sword'
and was a knight for
a little while in the middle of the orchard. ;)

I love how that boy can pose! I can feel fall coming but don't want to rush it.

hope you are well.

I love your blog. I love your photos of your beautiful children. I love the way you write about them in such a way that I feel I know them. I love the quotes that are so perfect for each post. I love that you are able to keep me feeling a little closer to my home state of Wisconsin.

Thanks for writing this blog! I appreciate you!

You can see by your beautiful photos that they really had a wonderful time. Those cherries look delicious! And I love Will's magical sword.

I miss you my friend. I think we had a bit of our own magic this past weekend. So much fun catching up with each other. We sure know how to talk don't we? :-)

Good luck with school next week. I'm sure both of your sweeties will love their new teachers. It definitely is nice having the house to yourself.

I can only imagine with living in Wisconson that you appreciate summer more than the average person. Thankfully, we still have another 2 months of warm weather before the cold will return.

Summer has ended for me, I have been back in school for 2 weeks. I hope the kids have a great start to their school year.

I'm jealous! I really wanted to pick cherries. They look amazing!

School started a few weeks ago here. It's been a fun summer and I hope you guys have a great fall :)
