In denial...

The girls don't head back to school until September 3rd, but I'm crazy busy with my new semester start-up at my University, so I decided to give my blog an "academic" makeover.


The leather bag of marbles is from my childhood.  I love gathering bits and pieces of my personal collection to make my monthly blog headers.  I'm totally in denial that summer is nearly over.  

Wasn't it just June?

Weren't we just on vacation at the Wigwam motel on Route 66?

I love your new banner...the book and marbles are so sweet. And what would back to school be without crayons. I'm hanging on to summer a bit longer! Hugs!

It's still summer here... Dear daughter doesn't start college until end of September - Since most of her friends have already started, I think she wishes her "summer" were over too :) Your blog banners are always so nice!

I love the new banner! I can't believe the Summer is over...Mackenzie starts school tomorrow. Pretty soon it will be time for Fall decorating!

Awe don't be in denial :). Your favorite season is coming up! Plus you have great memories of your amazing trip this summer to talk about in front of a nice fire with lots of cozy blankets and hot cocoa! Love the new header! When I smell old fashioned white paste I think of my first day of kindergarten! Hugs. Maggie

We are sending you some weather in the upper 90s to make it feel like the beginning of July instead of the end of August. Heat & Humidity!

The end of summer is sooo bittersweet! However, Halloween is just around the corner! Bring on the fall fun!

Love the new header! But I relate! I always approachthus last week of August with so many emotions, many sad :(

I keep looking at the calendar and can't believe this is the last week of August. My kids don't go back to college till the end of Sept, so hoping I get a little time with them yet this summer. Great new header!

Lynne said...

Seems like just a few days ago instead of a couple months!

Jboo said...

In denial too and so is the weather here with temps and humidity in the high 90s! It's pool time not school time! :)

Time as really flown by this summer. Seeing the teepees. There is actually a TeePee Motel a couple towns away from me. It had been closed down for many years and a couple bought it and redid everything. It is a Motel where you can stay in the A/C teepees and a rv park.

Really cute header for the start of school! I can't believe how fast summer as flown, either!

Yes, it was just June! This summer has zipped by really fast! We are finally getting some hot summer weather, but our kids are missing it. They have been back in school since mid-Aug.
