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.|
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.
