This is the last week before school starts in Western Massachusetts.
Teachers are already in their classrooms, getting things ready.
They have important and difficult jobs with our little (and big) kids.
It's been a super summer vacation.
I loved seeing an out-of-state darling little grandson and also having an overnight with my sweet granddaughter and her family in Rockport, Massachusetts, near the ocean.
One other best part of the summer has been sleeping past 6 a.m.
Even getting up at 7 or 7:30 a.m. felt like a treat.
The photos in this post are of flowers received by the main farmer in the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) I joined for the very first time with a cousin.
The flowers are bright and perky, like summer personified.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST PART OF YOUR SUMMER?
