Expiration of Summer...

It has been quite a while since I have written. Well, I have written but not published. My latest "posts" sit in my draft folder wondering if they will see the light of day. They might but they might not.

I think I am mourning the summer as it bids farewell. I am madly wanting to hang on to everyday.

Tomorrow we will celebrate Abigail's 12th birthday and later this week I have some meetings that I need to attend then next Wednesday it all begins -- back to school.
The past months have seen a lot of swirling commotion but through it all we ultimately have found a comfortable pace of life through the summer. I will miss the comfortable pace as we dive back into our school schedule.

But, with the expiration of summer came the happy day that we were able to bring home the newest family member..... Ella.
Ella is a Maltese that was given to us by a sweet friend of ours, Sandy. What a treat it is to have seen this darling puppy from just a few days after she was born to the time that she was able to come home with us! Thank you, Sandy!
Ella is adjusting beautifully to life in our house with two girls that think the world of her and are there to take care of her every need!

I love your dog! I am contemplating getting another dog after our Angel died 1 1/2 years ago. School starts soon and so life will get crazy once again! The good news is that you have so many blessings and is good!

Loretta, I sure love your blog! Welcome Ella! We now have TWO kittens since baby Callie passed away....One is Bella and the other is Callie #2. Both are very loved and have also adjusted well to our home. I hope you find peace with the hectic school life schedule! We all have to find that, ya know?
