-Last day of summer-

This is what I have been working on lately, Prairie Schooler "Thanksgiving comes again". At this rate it should be done in time for Thanksgiving! It has been fun, but the last week I have hit a stitchy slump on it.
This is how we spent our last day of summer time. Relaxing in a creek. It was so much fun, we spent all afternoon swimming/floating/playing. This is my youngest in her little inner-tube. She is actually a better swimmer than I am, she swims underwater like a fish!
And this is my oldest swinging from the rope swing. You may remember pictures of me last year doing this, and let me tell you that tree is way higher once you are up there clinging to that rope. For me it was terrifying (i'm a little scared of heights), but my oldest loved it.
Again my oldest swimming in the water. There are huge schools of fish in the water that don't even seem to notice you.
And this is the first day of school. My youngest started kindergarten this year,sniff sniff my baby is growing up. They had their new school uniforms all pressed and ready to go. I mentioned in my last post I had trouble finding shoes for her, so I had to order them off Amazon. When the box came I thought it would be neat to let her open her own mail. So I gave it to her and she fought off big sister while ripping it open. Let me tell you, I have never seen/heard a more disappointed five year old when she got that box open to find plain white shoes. Poor kid.

Lovely progress on your stitching!

You have beautiful kids.
Love the rope swing, I was always to chicken as a kid to do that. Can't believe your kids started school - we up here in NY do not start until after Labor day.

Love your PS piece!
My boys don't go back to school until the 27th.
Oh my, we have something in common. I did a rope swing this summer too, and like you I have a thing about heights. It didn't look high at all until I climbed up there and then it took me about 5 minutes to jump!! The boys thought I was so cool because I actually did it!
Your little ones are so cute! I am sad because starting this school year, we no longer have anyone in elementary school!
