So long, Summer.

Happy first day of fall! Today, Zhen got a little weepy when I told her it’s the first day of fall and summer is now over.

“I’m not ready for summer to end,” she whispered wiping a fallen tear from her cheek.

I gave her a hug and reminded her of all the fun things she loves about the fall: apple picking, decorating pumpkins, Halloween, and her birthday! So she’s happy for the fall now, and I am, too!

What about you? Are you ready for the fall?

Here are a few cute photos I took of the kids this summer.

Zhen loved her sign so much that she hung it up over her bed.
Zhen and Zechariah got to help Detroit artist Phillip Simpson paint his beautiful mural at the Joy-Southfield CDC. This was during the third Sidewalk Detroit Festival. They helped paint the lemon yellow (seen here in the photo).
After a year of missing the beloved Belle Isle Conservatory, we were excited to visit Detroit’s historic city greenhouse. It was also Zaya’s first time visiting the conservatory!

Thank you for following along this summer! I hope you’ll stick around to see what we’re up to this fall. xoxo
