Sometimes I wish summer wouldn't end. I love the easy days...waking up to 'what should we do?' instead of 'what's on the schedule?'...swimming, sunshine, butterflies, tan lines. What's not to love? But, this year I have been looking forward to the change. We'll be entering a whole new phase this fall at our house, and it's been pretty exciting for me. Except last night, after one of our last swims of the year, we went looking for fireflies...and there weren't any. And I found myself quite sad to realize the summer is really over.
