Summer Fun

 This has been a really, really different summer for us...lots of stuff going on and big changes in our family...but I have tried to do some of the fun stuff we enjoy mixed in with all of the chaos.  Hot summer nights call for ice cream!  We ended up at Baskin Robbins on the 31st when they have $1.50 cones lol  It was packed!

 We had these two crazy pups, Rodger and Boston, visiting for most of July and into August.  Juniper seemed to like it at first, I think it helped her not be so lonely after Maggie's passing but she was quickly done with both of them LOL

 Love notes on my car while I am out with my girlfriends for Duckies at El Chihuahua~

 After camp playdates and picnics.  These two have had such a fun summer together!

 So many stops at Bob's Brain Freeze.  His favorite is the Pokemon flavor...of course!

 Ive been working on my work trade for Rowan's school.  We worked quite hard and landscaped the back area between the art wagon and the outdoor classrooms!

 I think it turned out pretty great!

School starts in a couple of weeks and we plan to get out there and finish it~

 Rowan spent a week in a Martial Art's camp.  It wasn't his favorite activity, but he is considering doing classes there.
 He had fun breaking boards and learning to do side kicks!

We have been spending most Sundays at Lagoon, using those awesome passes and I have been trying to make it to Seven Peaks a few times before it's too cold to go.

Rowan is LOVING nature camp! Park days, hikes, exploring, friendship, field trips, guest speakers and arts and crafts.  I am truly grateful for all the fun he has been able to have while I am occupied with other things.

Summer is ending way too soon for me...but the Fall will bring new possibilities and hopefully so much joy~
