Dagny going to school and the start of Dane's football season has forced me to face an obvious truth; summer is over for me. Usually I don't officially say goodbye to summer until after Labor Day, but this year it seems fall, with all it's responsibilities, snuck up on me. It doesn't matter that the weather still says summer, my vacation is over. This summer was pretty fantastic, I miss it already.
Some favorite summer activities I will no longer be able to enjoy
- sleeping in
- staying up late
- wearing sun dresses
- long evening walks that end with frozen yogurt
- watching TV with the kids in the middle of the day
Fall is serious business, but lucky for me, it also includes my favorite holiday (Halloween) and this year I have a visit (hopefully) from my sister to look forward to. That makes the sadness over the end of my fabulous summer just a little easier to deal with.
