Last Day of Summer

This was it.  The last day of summer.  I realize I still have the weekend before going back to work, but this was the last weekday I had of pure freedom.

The kids and I enjoyed some time with friends at the pool.  They were in that thing for hours! It was a nice way to end it.

This summer was strange.  I spent a ton of time trying to pass the time.  I didn't have access to my house for hours some days, which was difficult.  It meant I had lots of quality time with the kids.  Just the three of us, which usually doesn't happen in this summer.  I have to say that I missed taking daily walks with Steve and the kids.  Having a leisurely pace.  But, it will be all worth it!

In celebration of the last day, here is a layout of a typical summer day last year!  Time at the sprinkler park!

I am a sucker for those flag and sticker banners from Sass.  I used them to make this sun.  First I just twisted the blue banner around the circle (which is the negative space of a journaling spot).  Then I noticed those white points, which were another negative space of a banner.  I cut each one out and stuck them between the blue rays.  Totally adds a surprise!!

I used the August kit for this one!  I wanted to be sure that you knew about our upcoming contest:

I am looking forward to the next phase...both kids in school.  I am so proud of them (well, Ella is still Ella but I see the light at the end...).  I can't wait to see them enter the world.

Off to enjoy the last weekend of the summer!
