Dear Summer

We were so excited when you came this year. Thank you for our youngest child's first seasonal brain freeze. We enjoyed our brief rest away in Oregon, returning to enjoy the last few weeks with you. It's been a nice few months and we've enjoyed our time with you, but it's time for you to leave. The temperature forecast for the next couple days seems a little pushy, don't you think? Please, our time together was great, but you've got to make room for fall. We'll see you again soon and I promise, come January, that we will be singing your praises and looking forward to your return.
Thanks for coming, now leave.
Thank you,
the family

Today We

Did a mini triathlon.
Cleaned the church.
Grocery shopped.
Made dulce d' leche, but didn't check how to spell it.
Played with friends.
Got hair done.
Had the missionaries to dinner.
Ran thee and ten miles instead of twenty.
Made and posted an inspirational music video.
Some laundry.
Said , "No, you can't play a game on the computer."
Played water polo and wrestling and scratched each other up.
Didn't notice two boys scratching each other up.
Rode bikes up and down someone else's street.
Forgot to do something.
And I think there's more but I'm done for the day.
This me is glad to be a part of such an awesome we.
