Slow to Post

It's been a while since my last post. The summer flew by, as it always does, filled with sports camps, boys camps, girls camps, Treks, hikes, swims, etc. It was all very fun, but very short. We need more summer in our lives! Oh, how I love the days of summer. I'm really a summer girl, at heart. I love those warm summer days, laying on a blanket beneath a tree, watching the leaves blow in the breeze. I love being so hot that it actually feels good to swim in a cold lake. I love going for runs early in the morning, with the sun already up.
Now, the days are getting shorter. The weather is getting cold. We may even get our first snow this week. I can't really complain, though. It has been a beautiful Fall. The weather has been perfect up until now--cool, dry, with colors beyond belief! The colors have been breathtaking this year. The other morning, as I was running down Fort Street, I was awestruck by the colors. I wanted to just keep running. Too bad I was tired and had my life to get back to. I love that "getting lost in the run" feeling! Fall is one of those things you can never get enough of, this year especially.
So, here are a few pics from the last few months...highlights.
