A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.

August 17 th - the smell of fall is in the air.

It’s always summer somewhere !

Lilly Pulitzer

It’s that time of year once more when the children head back to school and I’ve been getting back to school pictures of the grandchildren in my email almost daily. When my kids headed back to school, summer has always pretty much ended for me. The lazy days of summer are over and the busyness of the school year sets in. Now I’m a grand’ma’, that feeling remains the same. Every one’s schedules are fast filling up and the there will be no more picnics in the sun or waves on the beach to jump in. 

Sadly time will speed up fast and furious and before we know it the holidays will be here. The end of another year is celebrated with harvest time. It’s a new chapter for us. Every summer has a story to tell and this one is coming to an end. While this summer wasn’t the best one, it wasn’t the worst either.

At the rate that time is flying, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it! 

Summer should get a speeding ticket. It goes by way too fast.

I agree when the kids go back to school summer is over. I noticed last night too that we got dark shortly after 7 o'clock whereas a month ago it was after 7:30 when it did so. Still warm here though!
