I’m reminded that summer has come to an end for the majority of our friends and family living across the country, they’ve traded in shorts for pants, and flip flops for shoes/boots. We’re a far cry from trading in our flip flops! Although the pool has decreased in temperature considerably, we’re still in the 90’s and low 100’s every day. It cools off just enough at night (88 degrees) for us to go outside and enjoy some time as a family.

Surprisingly, 88 degrees seems extremely cool after battling some of the extreme heat we’ve had lately. We celebrated with a popsicle – totally bummed that I haven’t been able to find the Great White popsicles (without any dye) since moving here. Which inevitably results in stained shirts. What is the secret to getting that stuff out!??!
