Where did my summer go?

I can not believe that summer is over here in Texas. In less than 6 days, my 2 oldest head back to school. It seemed like only yesterday that we were celebrating the last day of school with this:

I started out with so many grand accomplishments for the kids like journal writing each day and quiet reading each afternoon. But something, or rather, someone got in the way..... Ian joined our family at the end of May and we haven't looked back. Who cares if we had a little less sleep this summer??

So what did we do this summer?

We collected a few postcards....update on that coming soon! We are almost there!!!
We attended a few camps in 100 degree heat.....

But we always got to cool down in one way or another!


We attended our very first sleep-away camp!
And jazzed-up some skateboards in Art Camp while Brody was learning to play golf...
The most important thing that happened to us this summer..... Bonding with our newest Darling. He has been the sweetest little guy. Totally a third child. Goes along with the crazy daily life we live around here. He trudged along to all the camps and activities we had planned. Stayed up at the lake house many times this summer (can't wait for him to be old enough to go out on the boat!). And fit into the groove of our busy but totally fun lifestyle!

And now the last week of summer is here. And of course we have big plans to celebrate it! Gattiland, bowling, swimming at the YMCA (waterslides!), the Ringling Bros Circus, Wicked, and movie day all before we head back to school next Tuesday! Whew! Summer is going out with a bang here in Texas!

YOu have done so much this summer. I feel like we haven't and I need to cram it all in this week somehow.

What a totally fun summer you guys have had. We started back to school yesterday. Trey was super excited to see all of his little buddies. I hope you all enjoy the last few days of summer break.
I can't wait to hear where you got all of the postcards from. I thought that was such a great idea and I totally enjoyed participating in the fun.

What a fabulous summer! I know the kids had a blast and will remember this summer as the one they got to spend with you -- what a gift! Are M and J excited about school starting?

When I look at all you've done WITH a new baby...I look lazy. All I've done is stalk a young boy that works at McDonalds.....

I'm so glad you guys had an awesome summer, but I'm so upset that school's around the corner for all of us! Yuck, yuck, yuck! More summer! More summer! More summer!

Summer really seemed to fly by for us this year as well! Sounds like your last few summer days are going to be jammed packed.

I was going to ask you if you'd seen where my summer went (I can't seem to find it all) but it seems you were busy keeping track of quite a bit yourself!
(Oh, and playing with a new baby!)

Wait, the 3rd child is supposed to be sweet? Pixie must have missed the memo!

I can't believe summer's over either...but I am so excited for Fall, and the upcoming holidays!
