Some Summer Memories

Summertime, Summertime, Sum,Sum Summertime.

I can't believe it is August already. Where has the summer gone? Only another month to enjoy the summer festivities and finish summer chores. (I am still trying to figure out simple things like how my sprinklers work or what to do when they don't work--which is more like it. And trying to keep my grass and plants from frying in the heat). But I have enjoyed having friends visit and family come, too, on their way to Chicago on their vacation.
What is nicer than a granddaughter in your house to remind you to listen to the words of the new music that she plays on your car radio as your driving her to the craft store for supplies to make a banner for her bedroom? What about a 5 year old who answers all the questions of Scattergories with his new favorite person "Harry Potter"? Or playing pitcher for the 11 year old as he practices hitting the ball outside the boundaries of your back wall.? Or frosting cupcakes with an 8 year old for his brother's birthday party? Or making pencil cases out of duct tape with my 15 year old grandson? Or holding and loving my newest grandson? These are some of my memories of this summer.
I hope your summer is filling up with good memories as well!

Jean, What great memeories you ahve been making with your family! They are adorable. everyone of them!
We too have a yard frying in the heat! ;[ It has never looked this bad. We can't seem to get water pressure. We think the yellow spots are starting to out number the green ones. I sked Mr B if we could just spray everything green;)

You really are terrific grandma!
