While it’s still blazin’ hot out there, the end of the summer is upon our crew. Grunt started back to work last week and the Circus started back to school this week.
These last few weeks of Summer haven’t been too much different than the first. If you didn’t see the post about the first part of our summer, you can see it here.
After we got back from our Dollywood/Pigeon Forge trip, the Circus helped myself and the bestie with the silent auction we helped put together to benefit a local cancer support network in our hometown.
And when I say she helped, I’m using “helped” lightly. 😉
The silent auction runs alongside the annual Hee Haw production also put on by the cancer support network. We whipped up a photo backdrop and as you can see, the Circus was a big fan.
She was quite excited to chase after her Grandaddy with a rolling pin.
As I told you in our first Summer of Seven post, our cut flower garden didn’t do as well as it had last year. We still haven’t gotten a lot of rain this summer, but the garden did perk up some. She’s all about checking to see when flowers are ready to be cut.
We visited the Cumberland County Playhouse to see their production of Matilda. I hadn’t been to the playhouse since I was in middle school and was there on a field trip. I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed! The actors and actresses did a phenomenal job and all three of us giggled throughout the play. We’re on the lookout for more plays to attend there.
Tie dying seems to have become a yearly back-to-school tradition for us. Last year, the Circus asked to tie dye and did a few shirts for herself and us right before school started back. This summer, she did more shirts for all of us, but she also added bandanas and shoes to her tie dyeing arsenal.
And just before school started, she and I went for manis and pedis. I’m now calling her a “Golden Girl” because she went for a pure gold color on both her toes and fingers.
