Au revoir, Summer 2009

This was one of those summers that I'll never forget. It was the most undramatic, most fun and rewarding summer I've definitely ever had. I'm sure my summers of my childhood were very enjoyable, but I was too young to enjoy and remember them. This one, however, was not.

This summer was great. Spiritual experiences, traveling abroad, learning, spending time with my family/friends and growing closer to those who I didn't know very well. Friendships were nourished and flourished, helping me develop unbreakable bonds with those I hold dear to me.

There weren't any car wrecks. There weren't any mysterious cases of small poxes. There wasn't drama out the wazoo. It was a very peaceful summer for me.

May 24th to August 18th seems like such a long time when you look at it on the calender. For me, it zoomed on by. Thousands of laughs, a couple tears, hundreds of pictures, two Tony Stewart victories, and about 20,000 text messages later, I'm brought to this day, August 16th, only two days before school starts. My last first day of public education. Jiminy christmas!!!
This was taken on my first day of kindergarden. Seth was only a few months old, and I had just turned 5 a few weeks previous. Kind of amazing how much you grow and change in twelve years.
And this one was taken on July 31st of this year. I think it's safe to say we've changed some :]
