An Ode the Ending of Summer. To the Start of a New Season. Oh! and the Winner of the Mugs and Muffins Giveaway!!!!

“The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling it with love and prayer and purity, is doing something better than anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies.”
― J.R. Miller, Home-Making

It was a good evening to take a stroll with my two girlies.  Big Brother and Daddy were off on a cub scout camping trip - so, when that happens we always like to do something special.
We didn't go far.  Just a short jaunt around some of the pasture.
It was beautiful.  And, it was a beautiful opportunity to "seek and find" all the things that particularly captured our attention.

The sun was setting - peeking its glances through the leaves.  It caught our eye - we smiled back and enjoyed it's gentle gaze.  Hand-in-hand we strolled.  Chatting about our finds.
We found a cocoon, the moon filling the sky.  The farm from a far, the neighbors flowers and a first fallen leaf.  (It probably wasn't the first - but we won't tell...).  A hive for bees... better said, a wasps nest!!  (Oohh, we wonder if our landlord knows about this.  We'll be sure to tell him the next time we see him...)
We took note of the textured milk-house glass windows, clumps of recently mown off grass, and the tall, TA-AAALLLL silos!!

As summer casts its shadow on the garden wall - along go the flowers.  Perhaps?
A new season is upon us. A new school year!! We fill the backpacks and prep the lunch boxes.  It's the end of the day.  Time for a good night's rest!  And.. sleep we sort of did. :(

School, for the oldest, will be here by morning's light!!  Time for extra hugs and kisses.  Prayers.  Whiling away the nervous jitters and giddy excitement.  Time for extra encouragement and much needed, specific instructions...gentle reminders!!  And... this went for Mama, too!
And... here we are!! Early this morning!! Waiting for the big, yellow 54!
Jayne's first day of PreK is coming up - in about two weeks! :) She's so super-duper excited.
Oh - and before we forget!!
