Summer is Slipping Away . . .
The minutes of summer are slipping away quickly. As my older girls are preparing to start school in the next few weeks, we are trying to pack in as much fun as possible. Trips to the community pool, the farmer's market, the local working farm, as well as a picnic in the park are all things we did this week knowing that the busyness of the school year and cooler weather will change the relaxed schedule that we have grown accustomed to. There is a lot of excitement for the start of first grade, kindergarten, homeschooling our preschooler, dance classes and soccer. But I am not quite ready yet. I enjoy having complete control over the day. Sometimes we were lazy and sometimes we were busy. But the thought of cool nights, sweaters and pumpkins do give me reason to smile!
