Furthermore, today is the last day of summer for me; my first day of the fall semester starts tomorrow. As I will be taking more than my usual number of credit hours and working part-time, I will be kept busy.
At this moment, I am unsure of how many times a week I will be able to post. However, I must move forward with an open mind and a positive attitude...I can do this!
Having said that, the following photos are a tribute to the summer that passed so quickly.
Here are some of the things I did:
...warp photos. This is one of many photos that I have made a collage out of.
...attend the "Colin & Brad" Show in Omaha. It was on my twenty-second birthday.
...visit the community college I once attended.
...enjoy a mini vacation while watching my brother graduate from college.
...try shopping at a new store. In this case, Avanza (a Mexican grocery store).
...teach Vacation Bible School for the tenth year in a row...and make crafts aimed at five-year-olds.
...watch my cousin's softball games.
...watch the sun rise over Lake Manitou.
...watch the sun set behind the Iowa hills.
...attend the last ever fireworks show at Rosenblatt Stadium.
...enjoy Council Bluffs.
...explore the Old Market up and down, cross-ways, diagonally, right-side up and inside out.
...stroll across the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.
...complete a five-hour, fourteen-mile canoe journey with the boyfriend.
...spend time with family. I attended my family's annual reunion as well as join the celebration for my aunt and uncle's 25th wedding anniversary.
...note the damage that wind shears do.
...swim in the cool waters of the local quarry.
...go "golfing" with three retired-men who exude hospitality, kindness, and innuendo.
...go boating and tubing with my family. (And, in the process, erase the skin from my elbows.)
...enjoy my time at home with those whom I love.
