Summer Closure

It has been about a week since we have officially traded in sprinklers and sandy feet for the school yard and new shoes.  Despite one exceptionally hot day this week, it is beginning to feel like fall in New York City.  A much welcomed transition.

We had a summer rich with memories, and there are so many things that I want to remember.  Like A’s sweet toddler voice, and the excitement of L loosing her very first tooth.  Great fun was had on our city adventure, afternoons at the sprinkler playgrounds, and our many visits to Rockaway beach.

September has brought great change for our little family and we are still figuring out our new rhythm.  Although I’m a true summer dreamer, I can’t help but be excited about the crisp feeling in the air and all of the goodness that comes with fall.



  1. Such sweet pictures!! Summer leaving is always bittersweet. And your comment about the sweet toddler voice reminded me that I’ve got to get my videos transferred to DVD (ugh, such a task because there are so many tapes!), my oldest had the sweetest toddler voice, and we’ve totally got it on video somewhere.

    Happy school year to you. 🙂

  2. Oh, it looks/sounds like such a great summer! I know what you mean, though. I love everything fall brings: the weather, the excitement, the feeling that the next year could bring…anything.

  3. The end of summer is always so bittersweet for me…leaving Italy is sad but then I’m also happy to be going home! It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies! That in itself is a bittersweet feeling! By the way, your kids look like the best of friends…or are they faking it for the camera?! lol!

  4. I’m with you! Definitely feeling sad summer is over but happy to get back our routine and still trying to find our rhythm!

  5. What adorable pictures! Sounds like you guys had a wonderful summer 😀 I definitely can’t wait to get into a better rhythm with school and everything. I all of a sudden feel ten times busier, ha ha!

  6. I love your photos! Your kids are so adorable 🙂 Have a great school year!

  7. What a fun summer you guys had!

    But there is something special about NY in the Fall – visited several times and always in Autumn 🙂

  8. Beautiful memories to cherish forever. New York City looks amazing through your pictures. I want to visit! 🙂

  9. Beautiful pictures! It looks like your family loves summer just as much as our’s does. Sad to see summer go, but excited for all things autumn!

  10. This is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your memories. 🙂

    It looks like a super summer though! And it looks like you have all settled into school really well too.
