and no matter how big they get... there's always time to make a fort.

Really? Is the summer over? 
The days feel like they are getting shorter and shorter. 
We had a blessed summer
and I guess
I just want to treasure each and every moment.


 J is now old enough so this summer he sometimes manned the grill...


and Family game night always included our four legged fur baby...


H and J did some volunteering this summer at Art More Place...




and I'll admit,I love having them in my creative home away from home.


We did some beach time...



and H participated in a theater summer program where they performed Pippin...


and we visited some colleges



and H is learning more recipes 


 and she got her Lerners Permit


and Josh and I went zip lining...



and boy did we laugh...


and no matter how big they get...
there's always time to make a fort. 


and have snacks and hot cocoa...


and before you know it...there ready for the first day of school again.

Going into 8th grade


and going to be a senior.


These are the days.

Here's to making every minute count,

Can't believe it really, but then my son is 29 and I can't believe that either!!! Love that your family is so close and you still hang together. We just had my son and his girl here for the weekend and it was so nice to just relax and be together. Good luck on the college stuff - yikes- you must be freaking out a bit Cat. xox

Wow, Cat, you are so fortunate to have such great family time with your kids being in their teens. TFS the great family pics.
TFS your awesome projects too. Love the art journal cover and the thick embossed charms. Always enjoy your projects. Thanks again for sharing!
