Despite the still warm weather and the August date, summer for us came to a grinding halt this morning as the boys eagerly stepped on the bus at 7:30 am for their first day of school!
There were no tears of lament over the changing of the season - the boys had one of the very best summers of their lives!
Some of the summer highlights were, of course the beach vacations with the Hightower family and the Etheridge family, and the camping trips with friends...
But we wrapped things up pretty spectacularly with little adventures here at home (or close to home!) with friends and family:
- There was a family-fun day in Glenwood Springs (including back-to-school shopping, but also a nice lunch and a visit to the hot springs pool!)
- There were good times with great friends celebrating Iowa sweet corn and August birthdays!
- There was definitely LOTS and LOTS of time spent with friends...
- But perhaps the best adventures had this summer (or at least, my favorites!) were the ones Hamp & Sam shared together!
