this crazy life

summer whizzed by in a whirlwind of homecoming, vacation, daily life and camp. and here we are on the second day of september already. where does the time go? it seems to sneak by in the twinkling of an eye. both of the girls grew several inches this summer. stan keeps telling them they're not allowed to grow anymore... but alas, they still do. :)

so i'll quicky share our last few precious days of the summer of 2010. while sitting around the house emma asked if i would curl her hair with the wavy curling iron... so we did and got a few pictures that epitomize summer, i think. there are more here.

after the previous day filled with summer sunshine, it poured rain. we snuggled up under blankets and hunkered down for the day.

stan's squadron had their annual picnic. stan was voted into the dunk tank. the girls (and a bunch of the navy fellas) had a great time dunking him over and over. he made sure to give the girls a sloppy wet hug when it was all over, though.

saturday was just one of those days... you know the kind of day where you just want to get back in bed and pretend you never really started it? yah, it was that kind of day. lots of prayer and a wonderful husband really make the difference through those moments of tough junk. so while i may not have found the light at the end of the tunnel, at least i found a light in the kitchen. :)

sundays almost always seem to bring refreshment, renewal and a fresh crop of new wishes, hopes and dreams. thank God for sunday!

i figured i'd give a little sneak for some glitz projects that'll be up on their blog this week. hop on over there tomorrow (sept 3rd) to check them out.
stan's been reading the hobbit to the girls for the last little while. they're so entranced by it. it reminds me so much of my growing up. my dad read the series to my brothers and sister and i when we were growing up. and lucky for torrey & emma... they've got a wonderful daddy, too!

wednesday we had our annual back to school fashion show where the girls get to try on all of their new school clothes for the first time, and pick out their first day of school outfits. the rest of the pictures are here. it's funny how silly little traditions turn into the things that you look forward to most as the years go by.


the end and the beginning. the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. the end of lazy days and the beginning of a new adventure in learning and life. lasts and first, beginnings and ends. it's all part of this crazy life.
