The Last Days of Summer

It's so sad.  Summer has come, and in a matter of days, it will be gone again.  Of course, we still have a few more weeks until the OFFICIAL end of summer....but once the backpacks, lunch boxes, pencils, and school buses are a daily occurrence...summer is a distant memory.
This labor day weekend holds no big plans for our household.  There has been some talk of painting - mostly on my part - but that's it.

My Mom and I went to one of the many roadside produce stands around here.  Everything from corn, green beans, tomatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, etc is in season - and it is SO GOOD.  When I was a kid, I remember eating a dinner that basically consisted of sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, green beans and watermelon.  Which is basically what we had for dinner tonight - except, we also had sloppy joes. 

Emily is SUPER excited about Kindergarten.  I also signed her up for tap classes which start the week after next - that should be fun.

I found some "E" and "P" cookie cutters at Sur La Table a couple weeks ago - they were only a dollar.  So, today, we finally made cookies with them.  We invited Jenna, Emily's buddy from across the street, to help us decorate.  They had fun - as did the adults.

Paige has four teeth coming in all at once - and I think I can feel even more - when she lets me.  She has not had much of an appetite lately, but BOY did she enjoy the heck of out the watermelon tonight.  She had three pieces of it.  Of course, when I offered her a cookie, she gladly handed me her much chewed on piece of rind for her dessert.

Also - Emily's permanent tooth has already come in - so, I am thinking that there will probably be many more loose teeth in her near future.

Have a great holiday weekend!  Check back Tuesday afternoon for first day of school pictures..........
