Somehow summer came and went. Didn’t really realize it was passing through- but it did. Goodbye for now to carefree schedules, last minute dinners, and going to bed late. Hello to getting up before the sun, schedules, and planning galore.

This season will bring another year toward maturity and new life lessons to be learned-for all of us, not just those going back to school. It is amazing to look back at the past year and see all of the learning that snuck up on us and came to live in our hearts and minds.

I wanted to enjoy this last day of summer in slow motion. But we were too busy with errands and attitudes. Many things needed to be checked off of “the list” and the day got away from us. The day was filled with unfulfilled intentions, much like the whole summer.

Then just like that, summer was over.
