Summer, we hardly knew ya . . .

it feels like Summer barely got started and is already coming to an end. Sure its been hot enough, just not long enough. This is the last week of Summer break for the Boy and I'm not ready to turn him back over to the school system. What was wrong with waiting until after Labor Day before starting school?

I finished both The Boy In The Striped Pajamas and The Kite Runner and hardheartedly recommend both. On some level, both books deal with ethic cleansing, upheaval associated with war, and the cowardliness that lies within each of us. With recent and current events in Afghanistan, I especially recommend The Kite Runner as it puts a different face to the turmoil that has become the norm of that region.


  1. I'm not letting go of summer just yet. I don't care if our kids are back in school. Nope. I'm hanging on to it with all my might. We still have most of August and part of September!!! La, la, la, la, la. My ears are covered and I'm not listening to you!!!!

  2. I was so ready to let summer go, then it cooled off a bit, and now I hate that I have missed 2 months of this season due to the oppressive heat. I hope that we are now going to actually start our summer and get out of our...super-heated-humidity-laden summer! (Best way to describe it without using profanity). Your photos are beautiful!

  3. I don't want to let go of summer yet either! It's too soon!!!!!

  4. Summer can't be over - just starting my vacation!! thanks for the book reviews!
