End of August= End of Summer

It is mid August and back to school time is looming before us. The yearly ritual of purchasing uniforms and other wardrobe staples has begun. The supplies are purchased and waiting in back packs for that first day to get here. The children and their mama however, are less prepared than ever for summer to end and autumn to trickle in. The call of the outdoors is still strong. Most days are spent with hands in the dirt or barefoot running through the yard. We have enjoyed the ability to take several trips this summer and spend time with friends and family discovering new corners of our area and the kids have spent months discovering new things about themselves.

I have been amazed by the amount of growth I have seen in both of the kids in the past few months. The schedule has relaxed and the freedom of self-discovery and self entertainment has revealed some great characteristics in my children. Their imaginations are thriving at this time and through their play they are learning things about nature, math, and words.

The garden is starting to slow down and the weather is already getting cooler so I guess we better get ready for fall but I wish we could just stretch these last summer days a little longer.
