Am I the only person sad to see summer go? Everyone's all excited for fall, for pumpkins and sweaters and soup. I'm over here like, don't go summer! Maybe it's because we had a pretty mild summer. It seemed like only weeks in the hundreds and above rather than months! I love the splash pad and sno cones and ice cream. I love more hours of daylight and the summer reading program. I love sidewalk chalk and bubbles. I think in part because when I still worked it was my time home with Carter there's just something magical about summer. What I won't miss is the hoard of mosquitoes in our backyard which have kept us from playing in it. But honestly we've been too busy and out and about to spend much time at all in our yard. I am looking forward to a fall learning theme. It was one of my favorites we've done so far!
When Ty's mom comes to visit she takes over bath time. She loves it and it's special time for her and the kids. While she was visiting I had a dream she came out of the bathroom after bathing Elise and said, "I forgot to ask, am I supposed to comb her hair or style it." It was one of those dreams where I woke up giggling. There is no styling going on around here. Sister is bald. Baldy, bald, bald. I still giggle when I think about it. It doesn't help that she also appears to be blonde so what is there isn't very noticeable. After she gets a bath her hair sticks up in the back and I crack up because she looks silly. Then I'll tell Ty he needs to style sister's hair. That dream really tickled my funny bone!

|I am so ready for days like this one, Carter's first trip to a pumpkin patch last year!|
|But I'll miss the splash pad.|
|And picnics at the park.|
