There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.  -Celia Thaxter

It’s late August, and my boys are all tucked back in to their school rhythms. 7th, 5th, and 3rd grade this year!

It amazes me, every year around this time, that it really is the start of a new school year. Where did the Summer go? And that’s when I need to count some of my favorite things, from the summer.

So here goes, 10 of my late summer treasures:

  1. My guys, the 4 Kings in my life
