I’m trying hard not to be sad.  Summer is ending, autumn is in the air and the days grow shorter.

The grandkids are going back to school and they’re all a year older.  The oldest, 12, sounds like a 16 year old, our only granddaughter is getting more beautiful, the middle child, 9, is anxious to get to the double digits.  He’ll be 10 in September.  The youngest  will be a 1st grader and no longer needs to be picked up from school.  Life will go on.

Our summer was a whirlwind of activities.

Pre-summer we took the grandkids to Sacramento and they had lots of fun being together.  The train museum is a must if you visit.

Then we had a girls only weekend, my granddaughter, my youngest daughter, and myself.  We drove tho Morro Bay and were welcomed with some beautiful weather.  It was fun and relaxing.

The beach was littered with sand dollars and tiny little crabs hiding under the sand.
