Where did you go, August?  You flew by in a whirlwind. Here's a blur of a photo tour (that dips a toe into the beginning of September):

My parents visited for a week and we laid my sister's ashes to rest.

I spent two days marveling at the absolutely glorious Tetons.

I picked up The Youngest from camp; she was named Rodeo Queen 
(she had highest accumulated score in rodeo and riflery events)

We shared a brief family vacation that included a fun visit to the
Monterey Bay Aquarium and its fabulous octopus exhibit.

I dropped off The Boy at school -- sniff, sniff.

I had a chance to visit the talented and welcoming Jamie Fingal
in her studio.

I wore out my dogs with hiking and playing (not an easy feat).

I tended to my garden and harvested its bounty, like this 10 lb watermelon.

I went to the Notre Dame v. Michigan football rougame , my first ever, and got to spend time with my daughters (The Boy had to stay at school) and family.

I got to share the game with my husband, an ND alum.  It was wonderful to spend time with him in his old stomping ground.

And now we're back to our regularly scheduled Fall programming: school and school events, driving The Youngest to her extracurricular activities, docenting, hiking, and helping to manage SPUN.
