(Please forgive the blurry photos. I wasn't expecting Micah to move the way he did.)

For the past two years, my son has tried to grow watermelon in our garden. Last year, we grew one melon, but it was not ripe at all. It's a little tough, because our season is just long enough to get a mature melon. If you factor in any extreme heat, or early cool nights, or too much rain, or a blue moon on a Wednesday, there's a good chance that your melons just aren't going to happen.
However, we had all of the above this summer, and it happened anyway! We had a ripe (if small) watermelon.
Micah wanted the pleasure of using the watermelon baller to get the melon ready for dinner.
And decided that he should really taste it before putting it on the table.
He flung his head back, declaring, "This is the best watermelon EVER!"
And proceeded to offer his momma the next bite. Love that kid!
So, what are you doing with your last little bit of summer?
Yesterday, we indulged on one of our family traditions, our fall visit to Penn's Colony.
Today is about church and being with family.
Some of us are playing Batman, and some are canning tomato soup and making applesauce..
I'll let you guess as to who is doing what.
Enjoy your day. :)
