So, here we are, the last night of the summer holidays. Our Only Girl is starting secondary school tomorrow, and then over the next few days the boys will go back too, The Smallest starting 'Big School'!

We have made sure we made the most of these last couple of weeks, taking off to this place for a couple of nights with some friends.
And let's just say, it is a boy's paradise.
This is what they spent most of their time doing, so much so that when he was finally home in his own bed, two nights later, this almost 8yr old was heard wailing from his room, "I can't sleeeep. Every time I close my eyes all I can see is fish swimming in seaweed..."
They had the time of their lives. And even though it was only two nights, it was apparently the most amazing holiday ever, bless them!
There was also a bit of this....
...and lots of swimming, and even the teenagers had 'the best time!'
And of course....
And then, to finish the holidays off nicely, this weekend was spent catching up with old friends.
A most lovely farewell to a most lovely summer.
I do hope you all had a good one, and as the seasons roll around, and as the evenings begin to draw in around us, I wish you all bright, bright blessings!
