The end of summer vacation.
The worst time of year for me.
The end of not setting an alarm.
The end of lazy dinners, pajama days, iced tea runs, hours spent reading library books, beach days and summer camp.
Just when my husband and I have gotten into a routine of reading outside under the lights in the summer air,
I'm staring at the calendar, realizing we have three days left before school begins.
Shoot. We still have home made popsicles left to eat.
Zoku Popsicle maker from Williams and Sonoma.
Rad birthday gift for Brenna. These are watermelon/ peach, and lemon. The key-lime flavor was pretty darn tasty as well.
Now it's the season for appointments, the push to buy holiday items and practice after school.
(yes, this is what I wear at my dentist's office.)
We won't go without a fight, though.
My neighbor and I took Brenna and a friend to the beach today for one final summer hurrah.
It's been hotter than hot here and we just had to go down one last time.
It was cloudy and warm....I knew better, but I wasn't the sunscreen nazi I usually am.
Let's just say we are all paying for it.
At least we'll remember today when school begins and our faces, arms and legs are peeling.
One more layer of me looking like saddle leather when I'm 70...
Have I boo-hooed enough?
Thank goodness summer comes again next year.
