Wow! What a week of back to school. We sent our oldest off to college (a week early for football) and the three at home (2nd, 4th and 8th graders!) went the following morning. I'm doing good, really. As the convocation speaker said yesterday at the Freshman college orientation, "it's realizing your student is fullfling a dream..." [that keeps you holding it together.] Absolutely.
Our week through the eye of my cell phone:
(It's a full one!)
(I hit the 300 mile mark this week. Some weeks I run a little more or less than others but that averages running 3 miles 3 times a week.)
Celebratory dinner out: hubs and I. We sent our first off to college!!!!
A peek at our week through the eye of my cell phone:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Garden thoughts. Joshua 1:9
It's the tenth! Time for ten photos over ten hours capturing the beauty in our ordinary. It's one week from today until school starts here! It's a full week of getting the kids school shopping done +sports starting for our youngest two boys, middle school orientation and finishing the weekend with college drop off for our oldest. I'm running off of lists and reminder alarms set on my phone.;)

We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.
--Henry David Thoreau
