Snippets from Summer's End

When the tie dye fabric kit not only says to wear gloves but includes a complimentary pair....wear them.
  
 When melting  butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, it is critical that you do NOT enter 2 additional zeros and then get side tracked. 
 The house does go quickly from a lovely scent of brown butter to nastiness somewhere around the 10 minute mark. 
 Just so you know.
Last weekend, Hubby and I along with three other couples, arranged for a special birthday dinner with dear friends.
The limo company is based in our town so we were picked up first and dropped off last. 
 The girls hitched a ride and spent the evening with the other kids...

The dinner service was lousy, but the food made up for it as did the company.
 

 At 3:00am Sunday morning had Sugar Plum Fairy and I bundled up on the trampoline watching the Perseid Meteor Shower
We then watched the sun come up.
The perfect way to spend our last "non school night"

 
This morning, I took Lollipop Pop to begin her Junior year.
  She is an Upper Classman.
How did that happen?
I do wonder who in our city thought that painting the crosswalks in front of the high school THIS morning was a brilliant idea.
Stop lights turned into a four way stop...today. 
 Seriously?
I then took Sugar Plum Fairy to her class. 
 She, and we, are thrilled with her teacher. 
 No tears this morning when we left. 
First time.
I am just amazed that this summer has flown by at such warp speed.
It is going to be a great school year, though...I feel it.
How about you?

We just drug out the books today - but may wait a day or two to get started. Wouldn't want to rush things!
