Summer is Gone??? Where did it go?

Yes it is September and summer is gone again. It seems like only yesterday it was May!! The days are getting shorter, the nights cooler and the leaves are changing color.

My summer was busy for a number of reasons. One was that I spent a lot of it with my grandsons - son's MIL and I babysat the boys so they did not have to go to a sitter and I took a temporary position as a Supervisor.

I enjoyed both very much and hope to repeat it next year.

What did you do for the summer?

Well.... we helped the oldest grandson decorate and put his 4 wheeler in the local Fisheries Festival Parade. The theme was Support your Special Olympians... we have 2 in our community that took home medals. He even got to get in a bubble!





We took the boys camping in our new RV...we all had a blast. The baby was a darling - you would think he was home in his own bed.




We took the oldest grandson to the Stock car races and the Demolishion Derby at the Speedway. He got to go for a ride in a stock car and then his name was drawn to ride in the pace car for the Street Stocks.






These are just some shots of the Grandsons during the summer with us!








Oh and I bought my very first new car!! Still getting use to the size of it.. I went from a G6 sedan with a 6 cylinder motor to a very sporty looking Mazda 3 with a 4 cylinder motor.



Look out 2012 I have lots of plans for you... starting with taking May and June off from work... I am going to be a Lady of Leisure.
