I am grateful for a great summer. I’ve noticed they seem to end abruptly these days. It rained a bit today and was cool enough for a jacket this morning. We did some back to school wardrobe shopping for the boys; as if the weather turning wasn’t marker enough. It was a great summer though, and we might still get some good long hot days out of it.

I am grateful for family fun night. We took it easy, popped corn and watched a movie (Guardian Brothers) for Julie’s pick. It was low key, and that was just fine by me.
