I'm trying to get back into digital scrapbooking. I'm not entirely pleased with the latest pages and could pick out what I don't like about each one. I've got to stop being such a perfectionist because it's slowing me down. I've got a 4th page that is nothing spectacular, yet it's taking me so long to complete it. I'll share it when I'm done. (Hopefully soon!)

"The best summer ever"......

Corey really enjoyed the "night swim" and making S'mores over a fire tonight. He said this is the best summer ever. He can't wait to go back to school and tell his friends all about it.

The boys were swimming until it got dark out already, but tonight was different. Dennis put the tiki torches all around the pool. It wasn't real bright and the water almost looked black, yet the water is crystal clear. Corey and Collin couldn't wait to put their goggles on so they could go under the water to see how it looked at night. They quickly learned that they couldn't see and this fascinated them.

We looked up into the sky at the stars and it was so neat to them and to me too. I think what I enjoyed most was the sparkle in their eyes and the happiness on their faces. It was a "priceless" moment.

I tried taking some pictures of it all, but it is nearly impossible to get a good shot in the dark. I'm sure, even without the pictures, the memory would last a long, long time. We're already looking forward to doing it again.
