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!
