So Long Summer.......

It occurs to me today that summer is over. Kids are back in school, days are getting shorter and cooler and I have a tree that the leaves already turned and then fell off some time this weekend. I have already started to miss it. I was looking through my pictures and found these of day in early September when some family friends took us boating on East Canyon Reservoir. What a fun day that was. I'm going to call them L and L. L and L are two of the funnest, nicest people one could ever meet. Can you believe Mr. L is teaching my kids to drive his boat? My kids loved that. (Not that they can actually drive a boat until 16 in our state.)

My Wild Child was freezing that day. Mrs. L was really sweet to cuddle her and keep her warm. The Wild Child ate that right up.
So now that it's over, I'm missing the boating trips, the playing, the not having to get up before the sun most of the week. I'm not missing the temperatures yet, but it is just a matter of time. Anyone else missing summer?
All that said......I'm sure sometime soon I will be posting about how much I love Fall and then how much I love Winter. I'm so fickle

I really love all the season but it is sad to see summer go.

Here on the other side of the world, we are just heading into summer. I will keep you entertained with our share of summer during the winter. I was so jealous when you guys were all enjoying summer. Thanks for popping by and the support.

I know I don't want summer to be over. Just the thought of scooping snow again makes me want to cry. Not that we had a lot, but the year before we had many inches of snow. Hmm I'll have to find pictures of our blizzard and do a post. Thanks for the idea! :)

I will NOT miss summer. Too much. Our spring was very long (I think most people around the country will say the same thing), and while everyone complained about the cool weather, I just kept saying, "100+ degree temperatures will be here soon enough - I can wait."

A life time of summers has been more than enough. Give me Fall! Give me snow!

I like them all for different reasons, I'm crazy!

We live on a river and really miss summer when it's gone!!!! But fall is a nice time to be outdoors too, so it'll be ok!

I love autumn best of all, but it is a bit sad to see summer go. Time just slips by too quickly.
