Going, going, gone!

This has been a hard summer for me, very intense. I didn't realize how hard it was until I noticed all the things I usually love to do that I haven't done. My garden is sickly and anemic looking; I'm buying jam instead of canning the fruit from my yard. I've even (don't tell anyone) let fruit go bad 'accidentally' that people have passed to me so I won't have to can it. I just haven't been up to it. School starting this year has been like the rainbow after the flood, manna from heaven, a razor after weeks worth of growth on my legs! I've created a photo series to document the release of my soul from its shackles. I've named it "Going, going, GONE!" Enjoy.

They line up.

Jill watches to ensure no cutting in line.

Jill noses Elizabeth to say, "Hey, quit crowding Emma, give her some space!"

Almost there...almost there...

I don't know this girl, she doesn't hang with our crowd, that's why she's last in line.

Any more? Nope? Then.......
We're outta here!

To all you mothers who spent today wiping your eyes, sniffing sentimentally, and mourning that your house is empty....I'm blowing a big raspberry at you right now PBThthth!
