Here we are, the last weekend of the summer, it just flew by!
Trevor came up to me yesterday and without knowing it just melted my heart. He says "It was an excellent Summer Mom, don't you think?". I said "it sure was" but curious why it was for him I asked. Honestly I thought he would say something like "because I could play video games all summer long" but instead I hear him say "because we took all those mini vacations and had great family time". You know at 7 I didn't think he would yet appreciate the family time but obviously he does.
He is all set clothing/supplies wise and he is very excited to get back to school. Mostly so he can enjoy recess and lunch with his friends but he also claims he is excited for math too :)
So we are now entering the last year before Brendan too has to start school. Only days ago the government announced that kindergarten would now be a full day rather than the 1/2 day we have always been used to.
I think it's a wonderful idea but there are some that are not too happy with the idea.
I have had a wonderful summer as well, full of relatives visiting, parties, family gatherings, mini-vacations, and just spur of the moment trips to the beach or the park. The weather has been devine (ok maybe a little too hot for a few weeks), it has been the sunniest (is that a word?) on record.
I do however have to say that I am not sad to see this summer come to an end, I love this next quarter of the year, it is without a doubt my most favorite time of year. The excitement of a new school year (ok so that one doesn't pertain to me any longer but it was one of reasons I loved Fall), Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, the smell of an Autumn day, dark nights (love this, makes me feel so cozy and for whatever reason I get more accomplished in the evenings), crisp air, snow, colorful leaves, it's just AWESOME!!!
So that's enough about the seasons and holidays, I just hope as many are as happy as I to go into the last quarter of 2009!
