Early in August I read on other blogs of summer being over and children going back to school. I'm not ready for that yet! Remember that long, extra-snowy winter we had... and how late spring was in arriving? Summer can't be over yet!
As homeschoolers we can start school any time we want, but I'm kind of glad that public schools around here don't start until after Labor Day. Seeing the neighborhood children playing outside makes it still "feel" like summer.
The fields are turning gold... the wildflowers are beginning to fade... summer is waning, and fall will be upon us soon enough. I want to take time to enjoy this day... this season...
I'm savoring these last few days of "summer freedom" before we start school next week.
