Today is our last day....tonight is "Sneak A Peak" at school....a trip to the neighborhood pool.....a big Cajun Meatloaf and Crash Hot Potato dinner...and then the bus arrives tomorrow morning. We have a 3rd grader. Can that be right?
Carter is excited....he genuinely enjoys learning, so the start of school is always welcome. Love that kid.
I'm dreaming of cooler temperatures, as you can imagine. Forecast shows highs in the 80's for the next couple of weeks and even a 77 in there, too! Sounds good to me. I can't wait for our patio to become a dining room again....early fall dinners under the trees with 7:00 bedtimes shortly after.
The bird baths will dry up and pumpkins will take their place. Pumpkins everywhere. I'm giddy just thinking about it.
Always a sign of summer ending......the locusts shedding their shells. They are creepy fun, aren't they?
Here is one fresh out of his old skin. I will miss their singing come fall....reminds me of southern Louisiana. Do you have them where you live? Most people tend to feel annoyed by them. Lainey is horrified of them. Carter brings them inside. To each, his own!
I was happy to see my sweet potato vine growing again. For months, I had only twigs.....some critter had been feasting on both the limey green and purple varieties.
Most of my pots are out of control and growing like mad.
Time for mums, don't you think? Orange and crimson red....even white....to contrast with the pumpkins, of course. :)
Back tomorrow with first day of school pictures. Stay tuned!
