Summer's End

Darkness is coming earlier in the evening and sticking around longer in the mornings. The air is cooling and the first hints of leaves changing colors can be seen. Julia is starting pre-school again, Amanda is immersed in her new job, and students are back at the university. Summer is coming to an end and good riddance, I say. Don't get me wrong, I like summer, I like all the seasons, but by the time they've hung around for a few months, I'm ready to see what the next one has to offer up.

Here are some snapshots of some late summertime activities we partook in. From swimming lessons to eating watermelon, opening presents at a summer birthday to relaxing on a hammock, and finally - face painting at an art festival.
