slow moving

After many, many hot days and nights spent under the hood- Mr. Lewis (affectionally named after the original owner) is up and running!  I'm not sure who is most excited about this, the daddy or the kids.  John installed the seat belts tonight and we were able to go for a pretty long cruise through town.  We talked about living back in the days before air conditioner and cup holders.  Before air bags and high speeds.  We took it slow and easy, much to the dismay of the cars behind us!

Speaking of slow moving, that's how I want to live this last week of summer.  We have an official start date for school next Monday, so this week we'll finish up some deep cleaning, wrap up our studies of Japan, and get books re-sorted and ready to go.

In honor of slow moving, I don't think I'll be back in this space for the remainder of the week.

Happy last week of summer (if you live in our house), or first week of school!

That is a seriously cool ride!!! Take it easy & enjoy your last week of summer. School has already started here so our summer is practically already over!!!

How fun! I still have the greatest memories of my Dad's old pickup that had to be pushed down a big hill to get started. When he took us to school we were sure to have grease somewhere on our bodies.

Looks like fun!

I'm all for slowing down the end of summer, two. My Amish neighbor dared to utter that most dreaded four-letter word yesterday-- s n o w. It'll be a little while yet, but still. People are starting to think about it.
