Chitter & Chatter’s Summer

chatter and chitter

This summer Chitter and Chatter have enjoyed fun trips,

playing in the water,

spending time with Monkeys,

singing with Pap,

dancing with friends,

cutting Papaw’s hair,

learning to embroidery,

hiking with Daddy,

taking silly pictures of themselves with my camera,

and sleeping late with jackets on (I have no clue why they wear jackets to bed)

    They are such darling girls. Though all the pics are cute, my favorite is the last one of them sleeping. There’s something so very innocent about a sleeping child.

    They had a great summer! How fun that we all got to witness the highlights. We have enjoyed days at the park, and the girls camping with daddy.

    Looks like Chitter and Chatter had a great summer with lots of fun. I love the photo of them singing with Pap. Many years from now they will remember these times.
    Take care, my friend.

    This is a wonderful reprise of summer fun! What great girls. (I wish I understood how girls can wear jackets in even the warmest weather!)
    Thanks for this glimpse of the good life!

    Wow brave Pawpaw letting them cut his hair. That is the cutest! We mostly stay home and work around our place. Just finishing up one more of four huge decks that were rotting. One more to go….

    The girls have had a big summer haven’t they. They’ve been busy building wonderful memories and you have been busy documenting for them! You and the Deer Hunter have provided a wonderful story book for them to write their life in!
    Guess school will be starting soon. They grow up so fast. My thoughts get a little disconnected thinking about when I was young and the process of growing up in comparison to the twins growing up now. This is a different world from the one I grew up in!
    I love you and the Deer Hunter for the loving family you have created for the girls!!!

    I used to sleep in my jacket when I snuck out at night and came in bone tired. I’m sure that has nothing to do with chitter and chatter’s jackets, but it made me laugh.

    Hi Tipper! Well, I’ve been busy lately…summer has flown by and we’ve mostly been building a house. Also local outings to parks, county fairs, some trips over the mountain to visit family, and Labor Day weekend we go to the ocean.
    Activity-wise, it’s been on the slow side, but work-wise it’s been hectic! I’m actually returning to the classroom and have been inundated with trying to prepare for teaching again, and at the same time get our business tidied up for my husband to take over again.
    I’m guessing I’ll have to post something on my blog about not homeschooling this year, because I noticed I’m on a lot of folks’ “homeschool blog roll”–so I don’t want to be deceitful! But I’m also a security freak and don’t want people to know where I’m teaching or where my kids go to school!
    Anyway, that’s what’s been making my summer so crazy-busy. Blessings to you all, I just loved all the pictures of your summer!

    Hey Tipper. I can’t believe I got this far. I have had a time trying to post comments this week, whew…
    The girls are just too cute and it just seems like yesterday I was their age. I always loved summer. We never played inside and found so many adventures in the woods. Beautiful pictures too. I hope the girls have a great school year.
    This summer I enjoyed my family, the garden, the fresh vegetables, the bounty to preserve for the winter. And I still had adventures in the…

    Oh my, this summer has flown by, hasn’t it? What beautiful girls! I miss mine being that age! I hope they are looking forward to another school year now that their summer is over. I love the fact that they clog and do contra dancing. There is a lot of clogging here, but I’ve never seen contra dancing. It’s so wonderful being a mom~thanks for sharing a little of Chittar and Chattar with us!

    Tipper: The girls looked like they had a great summer. I have enjoyed the summer with my hobbies of fishing, gardening, photography and golfing. We have cooled down in August, how unusual.

    I enjoyed the days when I had no appointments and no errands and no “I absolutely have to get this done today” days. I spent several of them in the sewing room and a few others reading. Those days bring peace to me. blessings, marlene

    Wonderful post, but the sleeping picture is the best! Jackets? Who knows?
    Are they twins? You may have mentioned this somewhere that I don’t remember, but I haven’t been reading here that long. Forgive me if I missed it.

    Oh to be young again … I like their summer! I mostly worked but also enjoyed the sunny days and the laid-back atmosphere of a summer campus.

    Hello Tipper! They’re rosy cheeks are from the sun or from a wonderful time they had this summer?! Always wondered. Are they twins? The first photo of them walking along the trail from behind is uncanny on how exactly alike in height, build, hair color. They truly are blessed to have such a wonderful family to inspire them to be the best and the most creative they can be! Petra *laughing* My summer was writing, blogging, writing, blogging, or the other way around.

    Is it weird to say I’ve enjoyed hard work? It’s true. I honestly enjoyed working on our little place. Kind of hard to believe that it’ll be just a month before I have to think about buttoning it up for the winter!

    What a great summer and wouldn’t it be wonderful if every child was able to have a summer like that instead of spending it at daycare or in front of the TV.

    I liked what the girls were doing in the last picture. Sure do wish it was me. 🙂
    This summer I enjoyed reading your blog, posting about your blog, and all the nice things we’ve shared. I enjoyed all the sweet music that Pap and Paul played, especially my request for Tom Dooley. It was like a vacation spent back home with family.
    I’d have to say, Tipper, that you are at the top of my list for things I’ve enjoyed this summer. Never had a better one because of you. xxoo
