we are savoring the end of summer around here,
as vacation ends and the busyness (yes, in the summer) eases up.
our house has been full this summer, with lots of out of town friends and visitors.
we've loved seeing so many our special people who live way too many miles away, but there's also a sense that it is time to change gears and get ready for the fall.
my girls (yes, ruby too!) start school next tuesday,
but lots of kids around us have started school already, or begin tomorrow.
it's a reminder to me that in only a year our life
will be much more shaped by the schedule of monday-friday, 8-3.
i'm not quite ready for that,
so for now i will enjoy the end of this sweet season,
and the slow beginning of another year of preschool.
any fun ideas for finishing the summer strong?
any back to school traditions in your house?
