Goodbye To Summer




Usually I am counting the minutes for summer to come to an end. It just has never been my favorite time of year. This year I gained a new appreciation for summer. Settling into life in the country has caused me to appreciate mud, water, gardens, yard work, schedule free days and popsicles. The boys have bloomed under the country sun and while I hesitate to say it out loud seem to be doing better than ever. Now we are a little over a week into the school year which means fall to me. I can't say I don't love all that is school. I love backpacks, packing lunches, homework, reading, well all of it really....I also have the honor of teaching Kyle this year and I feel as if I have learned more already than much of my years of schools combined. I look forward to cooler weather and having my husband return from the construction work black hole. But, I say a fond farewell to my summer in the country and look forward to many more.

I wish I could live next door to you. I am tired of being in the city. I am a country girl all the way.
