Well we are here. It is the unofficial end to summer. The kids have been back in school for a few weeks now, homework battles are in full swing. The pool is no longer bath water and we will be closing it for the season this week. All good things must come to an end.
The weather here is about to get cooler. If it's not going to be in the 90s and have 90+ degree temps in the pool, I'm ready for the Fall. I'm ready for the evening fires, for the sweatshirts, and for the football. It's been a great summer, filled with a lot of fun. We had an awesome, amazing vacation to the Smokey Mountains. We spent plenty of time swimming and the kids have loved going to the ice cream place. Now it is time to turn off the A/C and pull out the warmer clothes. Time to pull out the warmer comforters and blankets.
It is always a bittersweet feeling knowing that summer is ending. Fall is my favorite season, but it also means more time inside for the kids and less fresh air. The days get shorter and with less sunshine, moods can get disturbed. But it is what it is.
