OUR STORY_sumMer’13{august break_day thirty and thity-one…sign and smile}

the signs are everywhere she thinks

summer is at its final end

and it’s okay

just like cramming in one too many holiday parties, drinks, food, and stocking stuffers at Christmastime

she feels it resonating inside-

enough is enough

time to wrap things up:

the lazy mornings

the late bedtimes

 swarms of children {my own and neighborhood additions} in and out of my house slamming doors behind them

sandwiches for dinner

three cups of coffee and discarded toast crust over the span of two hours for breakfast 

it is getting tucked away for another year

we soak in the last like a monarch greedily drinking up nectar before she flaps her wings-

beautiful and strong for the journey ahead-

and smile

accepting those signs

the next

the next CHAPTER for us...

the next CHAPTER for us…

 

Thanks to all you beautiful people who followed along this month

either here at manyslices or on flickr.

Even those of you who don’t comment but check in often {yes I am talking to you Joshua}.

This month-long  creative experience has been a very therapeutic way to tidy up Summer before I button down and get all serious for homeschooling in September.

Don’t know when I shall re-surface again.

Or how often…perhaps with an addition to a homeschooling blog?

I am starting classes up this Monday...that’s right on Labor Day… because I have a cruel sense of humor… and I don’t like waiting around.

Cheers

and {smile} to Summer 2013…
