Labor Day comes around so
very, very quickly.....
The Kids Sarah, Jason, my Jon, and Dylan (sorry Jason and Dylan if I got you missed up - they're twins). Frolicking at Jones Beach displaying Jason's trophy from his tennis finals.

Bob and I happy as can be or just delirious from the heat.......
Our Annual summer picture, Paula, Janet and I.....(we have taken this similar picture for the past 10 years or so)

Sneaking a picture of Jon as we head out for our first day of School. He was much happier the night before.....the picture may have sent him over the edge (.....he's almost 16 - oh well)

Buster, had the hardest time with back to school. He was a bit confused as to the early 6 am wake up (he's used to sleeping in till about 8 in the summers). Had no inclination to go out and do his doggy thing. He looked at me from his favorite chair in the kitchen and sauntered over to his bed where he just went right back to sleep...... Oh how I wished I could have done the same.

I so love that beach. Lots of sand. And everyone looks so happy too. I had to look this beach up on Google. Over six million visitors a year, wow!

We go to a much smaller beach on Lake Michigan with my in-laws--have been for about a dozen years now. And we do that annual beach picture too with the year written in the sand in front. We've seen our boys grow up in those annual pictures in the sand.

Thanks for sharing the photos. They're great.

In response to a question you asked, that candy factory is in Whittemore, Michigan and is called Sherni's. Unfortunately, they do not have an internet website so I'm guessing they don't do mail order. That's too bad because they are good chocolates.

Dear Simply Me,

Well, I'm going to have to Google Jones Beach too. The name sounds so down-to-earth.

Back to school is such a difficult time. By now your family is over it, I hope. My son, at age 11, seems to have an unusually strong dislike for school which gets worse every year. If I'm not mistaken, back to school also means back to work for you- a double whammy in your family.
