So long sweet summer!

Leaves are changing, the weather is getting cooler and we are bidding summer farwell. Life is different here in North Carolina as we are enjoying an actual seasons other than hot and sweltering! This morning we were greeted with the sounds of school buses whizzing past our home as we were just wiping the sleep our of our eyes. Coffee was brewed and we slowly woke up while we snuggled on the couch to welcome our day.

Then the kids remembered and came a mad screeching halt to the calm. Kids running around to get dressed and ready for the day because they know that the first day of public school means...

For a few years now, the Jackson family have enjoyed a fun tradition of doughnut eating. Sure we get our share of strange looks and questions as we traipse on into a store - obviously lost since all other respectable kids are enjoying meeting their friends and new teachers but I find it fun to stir the pot once in awhile. And thankfully, I enticed others to join in on our pandemonium!

Too cool for school!

All the kids lined up to choose which doughnut they wanted. It took a lot of deliberation from the kids and parents but finally the treats were purchased.

Jake even got in on the deal!

Mmmmm! Loving the company and the gooey goodness!

Silly boys!

After all of the doughnuts were consumed, they were able to watch more being made. I love it how they have a little step up so all the kids could watch the assembly line of fresh doughnuts.

You betcha we will be doing this again next year!
