Goodbye summer...









This week is kind of depressing. Jonathan started back full time at school this week plus coaching the girls varsity volleyball team after school. No more easy 9-2 summer hours! This week is hopefully the worst of it though. He has something going on every single night, Monday through Friday. I hope the boys don't forget about him by the end of the week! We celebrated the passing of summer with a few fun activities over the weekend. Jonathan and I went Friday night to see "The Dark Knight", which we really enjoyed, although Jonathan thought it was a little too depressing. (I guess he thought it wasn't a "celebration" kind of movie, but I thought it went right along with "The Dark School Year" mood) My parents were in town over night Friday, so they watched the boys for us, and then we visited with them Saturday morning before they continued on to Arkansas. We got Silas a kite for his birthday this past May, and Saturday was the first day we really got it flying. It was a gorgeous day- sunny and breezy and not too hot. It took a while to find just the right wind, but once the kite got going it was crazy high! Eli and Cooper had fun watching it and smiling for the camera. Then Sunday I took Silas to the Frist Museum for Free Family Day. We had fun doing some art projects together and watching a performance by the Nashville In Motion dance group. The dancing was a little different to say the least. I think Silas enjoyed it, but I was a bit uncomfortable in parts of it... that's all I'll say on that.
Goodbye summer. See you next year.

It's sad, isn't it? All three of mine started school on Monday and this crazy pregnant woman cried most of the day. Time flies. Your boys are so sweet. Fun times!!

Looks like you had a fun time in FL and wrapping up your summer. Got to see Susan and Cynthia in Tampa this past weekend. Glad Eli is doing so well. Take care.
