Although I love the fall, I grieve the passing of summer with it’s long days and warm temperatures. I love sitting out in the yard, being entertained by the chickens during recess. And picking plump, sun-warmed tomatoes off the vines and popping them in my mouth and picking a few extra to feed to the girls.
Ahhh, summer how I love thee.
Today, with overcast skies and trees beginning to show off their colorful fall attaire, I thought I’d share a few summer pictures, reminders of the wonderful times we’ve had.
We started with babies…what fun!

The Amazing Leaping Olivia…high in a tree (funny story side note here: Janessa (age 7) came rushing into house one day, “Olivia’s a rooster! Olivia’s a rooster!” I asked her why she thought that and she said, “She flew high up into the tree! She’s a rooster!” ha)
