Final summer postcards

We start our school at home on Monday. Summer is still here, but a little bit of autumn too. It was a good summer, full of relaxation and replenishing of energy, we had lovely trips and spend time as a family. Like I have written previously, we consciously chose to spend more time alone with each other. Even on our trip we decided not to meet old friends. Since my husband was so busy this summer, every minute of togetherness became more precious.

There were some struggles too, and challenges this summer, but hopefully we learned more about each other and ourselves, and hopefully they empowered us.

Our August memories:

Golden Hours with the sun against thundery skies

Golden Hours with the sun against stormy skies

that very special birthday trip (a first double digit birthday for D. and a palindrome birthday for me)

the healing power of waves

the healing power of waves, I can still hear the roar in my ears

amazing colors

amazing colors all around us

many hills were climbed

many hills were climbed

And at last, when we arrived home, we found out that the tree in front of our house started to change color, and that even though it was in the 80s during the day, the evening wind got colder…

fall is almost here

The fall is indeed creeping in. One more day to plan, to lay things out, to prepare for another year of learning together.

  1. The sound of waves is magical in my opinion. Beautiful memories. And I agree. Sometimes reconnecting with your loves is the best way and oh so important. It is wonderful to be able to refocus and reconnect, especially after a time when everyone has been so busy in their own individual tasks. My husband and I are currently doing that. Learning to put aside outside obligations in order to reconnect with each other and our son. Beautiful summer memories. Thank you for sharing!
