September is here, and summer is quickly drawing to a close. It always flies by and we have tons of fun, but I am secretly cheering inside that fall is just around the corner!
Oh yes, I am one of those...a summer-hater. "Hate" is perhaps a strong word, but I really, really dislike hot weather. Sweating grosses me out. I can't stand bugs. And sunburn. Sweating as soon as you step out of the shower. Mosquitoes, ewww. Hot cars and searing asphalt. And sweating...have I mentioned that?
I long for the cool, crisp mornings, visits to the apple orchard, the scent of burning leaves, and watching the steam rise off my coffee when the kids play outside (without sweating OR mosquitoes!)
But we did have a fantastic summer, and we've been busy finishing up all the things we wanted to do before school starts again.
One last ice cream cone at Moxie's until next season...
One last hurrah at Hoffman's Playland...
A rousing round of mini-golf (This is Grace's "It actually went in!" face)...
And of course, no summer would be complete without a day at the fair (Seamus' remark here was, "Wow, that cow has a big heiny!")
So it's been a fun-filled summer. Seamus is continuing to recover so well from his tonsillectomy. We are shocked! He's doing wonderful. Pre-K starts again for him on the 11th, and I can't wait! it's great to hear the stories of what goes on at school and see all the adorable projects he brings home.
I hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer and gearing up for a fantastic fall!
This is the life of the Camenga family...Emily (mom), Devon, (dad), Seamus, Grace and Liam (kids). Seamus has achondroplasia, which is the most common form of dwarfism. We think our family is great and are so happy you stopped by!
