I’m Listography-ing again. This summer has been fairly pivotal for me, how to reduce it to five things I did this summer?

At the beginning of the summer he wasn’t that keen on slides, by the end of the summer he happily tackled any size slide.
The Autumn is a brings the challenge of finding a new job, it’s a slightly daunting prospect but hey, if he can do slides, then bring it on….
