Well, it is here. The last official weekend of summer. And as much as I LOVE fall...you already knew that, right?...I always feel bittersweet about another summer ending. And then I pull out my fall decorations and all is right with the world. : )
Friday we have no plans except Rhett working at the theatre for a little bit. I think I will have an easy meal of Tuna and Noodles and bread and butter before spending the evening outside with the kids. I am finding the days are already getting shorter as the darkness comes earlier so every moment counts!
Saturday during the day is free. Since we did a big clean last weekend, I may just do some quick cleaning... clean toilets, vacuum, quick dust and wetjet, and then put my feet up! We have Mass in the late afternoon. After that Madison has work, and I am planning on using some fresh garden tomatoes Steve got at the Farmer's Market to make some pasta with tomatoes and garlic. Yum!
Sunday we are going to my sister Margie's house for pizza and wings. We do this every Labor Day weekend and also again over Christmas. It is something we all look forward to! That means Labor Day itself is free for just us. We always spend that day just around the house together getting ready for school and fall. Steve is planning on cooking some hot dogs on the grill and maybe ending our summer with a trip to see Madison at Dairy Queen. : )
And that is what we have planned for this last weekend of summer. I hope your weekend is fun, and yummy, and warm, and sunny, whatever your plans may be!
Steve made a trip to the Farmer's Market and came back with green peppers, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and yellow squash! We threw them in a pan with some olive oil and added some pasta and parmesan cheese...and it was delish!
Another summer favorite...chop some zucchini then add some olive oil, garlic powder, pepper, and parmesan cheese and bake!
And just so you don't think I went all healthy crazy over here...Peyton made some homemade doughnuts last weekend. And they were soooo good!
There were pumpkin ones too. Be still my heart...
Summer days mean hours and hours of my favorite toddler toys...
and summer nights mean late night-after bath-pizza parties with the big kids!
I am loving my new cyber/homeschool planner...
but not as much as my Peyton is loving her copy of The Walking Dead Season Three!
Sitting outside on the porch last night, we enjoyed this view of a late summer night in our backyard.
And to finish up...a new hair selfie. And I am still waiting to see some of yours!
Happy Labor Day Weekend, friends!
