So long, sweet summer!

Slowly but surely, Dashboard Confessional, Norah Jones, John Mayer and Mat Kearney have been frequently played on my iPod. This can only mean one thing- crisp fall leaves and school books are on the horizon.

This summer has been chuck full of family, friends, and spending all of our gas money (and regular money). We can feel that the summertime hourglass is running short and we're doing our best to sponge up all of the fun family time that we can. The last few days we've been:
Eating our weight in smores.
Swimming with the Hansen cousins.
Avoiding getting shot by water rockets.
Laughing until we cry during Nunsense where my good friend Andra Thorne blew the crowd away!
Spending time with some of our very best friends.
Racing go-karts. (I was lapped by Dallas 3 times in 15 minutes).
Enjoying our new Walmart! IN HEBER CITY!!! I thought this day would never come. Heber is now, officially, the best place to live.
Running. Lots and lots and lots of running. My marathon is in less than a month, I've already completed one 20 mile run, and I'm feeling the urge to just get this race over with.
Dallas starts school and I begin babysitting McKenzie and Morgan again on Monday. Will and I start preschool (Will, learning, and me, teaching) just after Labor Day. It's back to the grind! We are looking forward to schedules, freshly sharpened pencils, cool evenings, changing leaves, Shakespeare, a new season of Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy, and being home in the evenings.

So long, sweet summer!

Are you sure you haven't been cross training? I see some serious tone in those arms, GIRL!

I just love all your recent posts. Summer is coming to an end and it makes me feel all weepy.

This is a great homage to summer! I too am looking forward to a somewhat normal schedule, changing leaves, cool nights and all that!

You are going to KILL this marathon!

So long to summer and hello back to school. Brock is back in SLC during the week and Alyssa is back at Davis much to her chagrin. And me, well, I am still doing the same thing I did in the summer and the rest of my life...being a mom and a wife and a homemaker, the best job in the world.
