Last Summer

Pookie’s already back in school. So are the trips, for that matter. Yesterday was their first day. Ever.

It’s hard to believe, but in mere weeks we’ll be referring to the beautiful season that just slipped through our fingers as last summer.

Only I’m not quite ready to let it go yet. So I paid homage to it. In part so I could relive it whenever I felt the urge to do so. If you’ve got three minutes, I hope you’ll relive it with me.

It was a good summer, y’all. I’m gonna miss it.

About john cave osborne

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    Great video and pictures. A great summer indeed. From my point of view I am ready for summer to end. I just can’t take the heat anymore.

    Brilliance, my good friend. :-) And just think, it is merely one great summer at the start of a series of great summers and great days to come. As a guy I know says; cherish the great times that have been, and look forward to what you can do to make the next one even better. :-) Knowing you all, you and Lovie will have lots of plans made, and you’ll do all you can to make them awesome. :-)

    Damn you too for upping the ante on me again. Published author and movie maker. Blast you Osborne- you had me at hello. πŸ˜‰

    Actually what really kills me is knowing that I was a teenager when that song came out.

    That was awesome! What did you use to put it together???

    • http://www.johncaveosborne.com johncaveosborne

      hey, brian,

      thanks! i filmed w/ a flip and the pics were just a panasonic point and shoot. but i ran them through iMovie and used their “scrap-book” theme. it’s funny, iMovie is fantastic b/c it’s so easy and the bells and whistles are really cool, but it’s not as sophisticated as Adobe Premiere Elements which is what i’ve used to put other things together. still, it’s a lot easier and a breeze to use, and there may be things i’m missing. it’s only the second thing i’ve put together w/ that.

      thanks for checking it out. glad you liked it.

    This was just picture perfect. SO glad you took the time to put something like this together. The kids will want to watch it over and over as they get older – what a priceless gift.

    You have an amazing family, Mr. Osborne. This truly shows a fantastic summer. Thanks for letting us share it with you!

    Eloquently stated. I share your sentiment about school starting and kissing summer goodbye.

    Beautiful pics.

    Don’t run at the pool! :-) This summer seemed so short. I didn’t take any video of the kids — I’m a bad daddy!

    Well done, JCO. As sad as I am about summer passing by so quickly, I’m even more upset that my wife’s maternity leave is almost up :)
