Sweet Shot Tuesday

Back to school, football pre-season, state fairs… what does August mean to you? Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to. For us it’s boxes of curriculum arriving at the door like it’s Christmas, the Iowa State Fair, corn over our heads and lingering summer heat.


  1. August means birthdays, back to school, and remembering the past. I just wish it also meant the end of the heat. I can’t wait for winter!!!

  2. August mean holidays, cooler nights, buying school supplies and wishing the summer wouldn’t end so quickly.

  3. And for us, it’s suffering through the last month of winter, having had enough of the rain and longing for Spring!

  4. Thankfully August means cooler nights and not going back to school-3 weeks of summer still for us…it also means one last vacation before labour day 🙂

  5. Thanks for hosting. August around here means enduring heat with the promise of fall. We’re homeschooler too…have a great learning year.

  6. For us it’s been a wild and wooly mix of summer heat, intriguing summer rain storms, school starting, birthdays, and REALLY looking forward to Autumn. (I’m already planning fun fall activities for my grand kids making scarecrows – perhaps using The Sunflower House.) Cools me down just thinking about it. 🙂 Thanks again for a delightful Sweet Shot Tuesday!

  7. August is heat that warms me all the way through… August is corn, tomatoes, and endless watering in the garden… morning coffee with the chickens and evening happy hour with my husband sitting in the garden paths.

    thanks for the link up:)

  8. Have a sweet week, everyone!

  9. Don’t remind me about school. With a kindergartener and a senior in HS we live figuring out the new school routine right now. 😉

  10. August means…holidays are almost done, the warm weather temp are lower and lower…you make last minute appointments before all the activities begin and school starts before you know it!!

  11. I love this time of year with harvest festivals, pumpkin patches and apple picking.
