Summer Lovin'

Hi Everyone!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. The past week was a mix of fun and sadness for us. I decided that since the girls were staying with DH's parents last week I would join him on a business trip to Chicago. We had a really nice time. We got to eat some great food, ride bikes along the lake shore and go to see a very funny comedian at one of the comedy clubs there.
While we were in Chicago though we got news that the mother of a good friend of DH's had passed away. I am glad we were able to spend Friday and Saturday with his friend and his family. Please keep them in your prayers. I know that they are going to be facing some sad, lonely days ahead.
The girls and I are spending the next couple of days trying to get into school mode. School starts a week from Wednesday. We got most of their school supplies yesterday so today we need to label them and make sure I didn't miss anything. We also got school shoes yesterday. K has gone from a size 4 last school year to a women's size 7!!! Good grief, I knew she was growing but 3 shoe sizes over the summer?
Before I go, I want to share a layout I did for Emma's Paperie a little over a week ago. While I was looking at these pictures I got of the girls and their friends I had to giggle at the goofy faces they were making while running through the sprinkler. I knew that had to be the subject of the layout. You can find instructions and a supply list on the Emma's blog.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week!

Hi there Lisa! I'm SO glad to finally get the chance to pop by and pay you a visit after my vacation the past few weeks. Didn't get near my computer as much as I thought I might. I'm happy you and DH had a chance to spend some fun time together in Chicago, but very sorry to hear about the passing of his friend's mother.
And wow, you guys start school early. We still have a couple of weeks, and I haven't even begun to deal with back-to-school issues. Guess I better get my head out of the sand, though.
Your summer layout is absolutely adorable. what great photos and memories. I love the bright colors and the row of strawberries that is so summertime, and that pinwheel is fabulous.

My sympathy is with your dh's friend and family. I'm sure you all were a great source of comfort.

Love your layout! So cheery.
