This summer went by so quickly. I never once heard my kids say the words, “I’m bored.” We volunteered twice a week when we were in town so they were happy to stay home the other days. I went to California by myself, and we went another time as a family. We visited Idaho for an amazing singing camp, and I also got to spend my birthday with friends in the mountains. My girls did some other camps, and just like that, the weather has changed and summer is gone. I can’t wait to see it again next year.
The seasons are like visitors. We greet them with excitement at first. Then, after weeks and weeks, we wonder if our guests are going to stop leaving their leaves all over the lawn, or if they’ll ever learn to moderate the temperature. Time marches them out of the house, and we are left mourning.
