the last day of school has arrived. i can’t quite wrap my head around that.

it is officially summer time!

it was jasper’s last day of school today – can you believe it?

i got teary-eyed when i hugged her goodbye at school this morning because all i could think of was how it seemed like it was her first day of school just yesterday!

kids are such a prime example of how fast time flies…  so very fast…

they had a picnic in the park for their last day so jon and i made sure to show up to celebrate their last school fling…

and it was hot.  and it isn’t even in the 100’s yet.  oy.

after a while on the playground, it was picnic time!  chick-fil-a, no less – yum!

hot and sweaty will pretty much be the name of the game for some months to come, i think!

at least it will be until we get into the pool!

how about those potato chips!

they look pretty good to me 🙂

we had a wonderful first year of school and by the time the next school year comes around, our jasper will be 4 years old!

ok, why did i even go there?  let’s just pretend i didn’t


the first fruits of our summer garden…

all right, well, not fruit per say but garlic!

jon and jasper pulled up the garlic and our laundry room is about to have a ceiling full of garlic braids dangling from it – i say it makes the house smell like feet but jon says it makes the house smell earthy but either way, it’s worth it!  once the bulbs dry out, i will be roasting those heads in a heartbeat!  roasted garlic, yes!!

i went for a run while jon and jaspy pulled garlic – yeah, jon put jasper to work!  when i went out to say good-bye, jon was pulling the garlic out and giving it to jaspy to put in the bucket – they seemed to have their system all worked out 🙂
