Last Days of Summer; First Days of School!

Another summer comes to a close for the Lewis clan.  We spent our last day before school with Dad. (He was off of work.)  We drove up to Rockford, MI to visit a u-pick farm and purchase a 1/2 bushel of tomatoes for salsa making.  Besides fruit and veges the Post Farm also grows flowers.  They were so pretty, but swarming with bees so certain individuals- SEVEN- wouldn't go near them.  After our produce purchase we went and found a little ice cream shop and enjoyed the warmth of the day.

Alas, the next day brought the return of school.  I decided that starting on the 1st of September would be good and give us a short week to start with.  Kind of an ease into school.  I'm happy to report that it went really well-  no major melt downs from the ones that don't really appreciate the school process.
I'm hoping the rest of year is like this!
