Is Summer REALLY over? :(

Here I am, slacker blogger extraordinaire, back with more gratuitous pics of Kathleen and my niece Madeline on Cape Cod. Since I last wrote, school has begun amidst a flurry of course changes and first-week activities, and I've just been trying to adjust to the fact that real life has actually begun again, and I am no longer on vacation! It's time to make the doughnuts! :)
I took the kids to Race Point Beach in Provincetown for a sunset photo shoot, and I think I got some winners! These kids make great models! Be sure to click to enlarge the pics--they look much better bigger!
I know the jumping could get old, but it makes for a good picture, doesn't it?
...balancing on the log, trying to look natural....
...and then losing their balance...
*sigh* my girl.
They look like sisters, don't they?

I loved this shot. The colors were amazing:
This one was ok, but the sky was kind of boring, so I layered it up in Photoshop, and this is
what I came up with:
I'm hurting for reading material now. I read "Mockingjay" on my sister's Kindle after Kathleen finished it. I'm thinking I may need one of those Kindles! God, I am such a sucker for cool technology, and that Kindle is COOL! I've hit a lull in the reading, though, so I just added a bunch of Amazon's top ten for the month to my library requests. We'll see if any of them are any good. I'm hurtin' for a good read.

I had my 26th high school reunion last weekend. What a riot that was! We had a pretty good turnout--107 people out of a class of about 200, and only a few of them were spouses! It was great to see people I haven't seen since we graduated, and some since our 10-year reunion. It was also quite interesting to find out that a BUNCH of people are local and I NEVER see them around town! What's up with that? I suppose it's because the only place you would actually SEE anyone in my small town is if you happen to catch them at the town hub: Stewart's. LOL. This place needs a pub. For real. Oh well. I've got a lot more Facebook buddies now, and hopefully we can expand the circle for the next reunion five years from now. I'm thinking we'll have to make it a weekend event, so that we have more time to visit with each other. I figured out that I only had about 3 minutes to spend with each person last Saturday. And I KNOW I didn't get to talk to everybody! *Sigh*

P.S. Has it REALLY been 26 years since I graduated? How is that possible?

My baby is 15 and I think her legs look so long because her shorts are so short! LOL! She's only 5'4". She's hoping for another growth spurt. Her doctor told her years ago that she would probably be tall and thin, given her growth chart curve. I guess we'll see! We just watched some old videos of her when she was three. OMG. SO cute and tiny!! :(

The girls are so photogenic, how could you not take pics of them? Love that one with the white chair; reminds me of Summer of 42.

Let us know what you end up reading. You always have such interesting picks.
