The End of Summer?

Labor Day! Gone, it's done.....over! So that means that summer is done too? Maybe not! The temps outside today are approaching the 90º mark so I'm having trouble thinking that summer is over!

This picture is our grandson, Elijah, in our backyard pool. Okay, probably the last time anyone will use it this year. We will probably be draining it sometime this week. But he sure was enjoying himself in there with no one to share it with.
He is a 'big boy' now he told me. He didn't want me to forget that his birthday is Saturday and he will be 4. And he told me that he would like a Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle as big as he is!!! I don't know where on earth they sell them that big, but I suggested that since he has almost every Ninja Turtle that has ever been made we should get him something else...........he didn't look real thrilled with the idea but after some more talking, he did agree with me.


This is our oldest son, Brian with Elijah. The rest of Brian's family was going to a park to play with some friends and Brian decided he wanted to come over and see us. It has been almost a month since he has been here........his job takes him out of town and out of state frequently. When Elijah heard that Daddy was going to go to Mema's house, he refused to go to the park. He was going to Mema's too! There are two other children in the family, but David who is almost 11 opted for the park and Rebecca, who is only 18 months, went with Mom. She doesn't have much say in matters like this YET, but being the only girl I think she may grow up to rule them all! Ha-ha!

It was hotter today than yesterday! I'm ready for fall so bad. Yeah, I would choose your house over a park. The company can't be beat. :)

Can I come and play too? I miss Michigan sooo much, it was in the nineties here today. But it the evenings now it's a lot cooler. I am ready for fall.

It was summer in denver today. Spent the day with my dad trying to help him get comfortable, I wasn't very successful.

I guess it was hot here today, but feels good to me! Your son and grandson are both cuties! And I think I'd come over to your place, too...just to hang out and talk.

Thanks for being such a wonderful and royal reader at my place. Your words always are kind and supportive and mean more than you could know.

Blessings to you!

You sound like a wonderful grandmother. (Isn't grandparenting the best time of life?) Little Elijah looks pretty happy in that pool; are you sure you can coax him out of it by tomorrow?

Found your website via Lori's...looking forward to having a look around.
