Summer's end

Can you feel the end of summer coming? The heat of the day is losing it's intensity, the sunlight in my kitchen stretches farther across the tile each morning and the birds are feasting on the end-of-season sunflowers in my backyard. Autumn is coming and school is just around the corner, one week from today to be exact. I hesitate to say good-bye to summer's playfulness and freedoms, but the more scheduled days of fall and winter bring their own benefits.

This week will be filled with school preparation and house cleaning but we will also take the time to swim, play soccer and visit with friends. When are you starting school (if you haven't already?) and are you excited and ready for it?

Have a wonderful Monday!
