Where did September go? I feel like it was it was just August!
At the start of September, my family and I went camping. We stayed in Morro Bay. It was beautiful and peaceful and fun... everything I love about my sweet crew.
Then I went to Hawaii with my mom, aunt, and cousin. I think we saw a rainbow everyday. My cousin had a moment with her father, who passed away last year.
My next two are iPhone photos. I love that I can capture life as it happens because of my iPhone.
Here, my middle daughter had climbed into bed to cuddle. She was so tired, she fell asleep. It is her first year in college, so I don't get to see her as much as I would like to. When I see this, I see the four year old that she used to be. Once my baby, always my baby.
With my two oldest in college, I have only one student left to homeschool. While I miss the other two, September has really given Sammy and I a taste of what it might look like the next three years. It has been fun to go on field trips just the two of us. Sammy gets to decide what to do and how long we do it. It took her about 20 minutes to get this bird to climb up on her.
Three years ago I lost my mentor and friend to cancer. I miss her. Her oldest daughter is getting married and asked Andy and me to be the photographers. To say I am honored is putting it lightly. We did an engagement shoot on the pier her fiance purposed on. It was a beautiful evening.
Please head on over to Second Spring and see what September held for her.
