It's already September. My daughter starts school in a few days. I'm overcome with sadness. Where did the summer go? I feel as if it slipped by silently, without proper attention given to it. I look at the lists my daughter and I composed at the beginning of summer. All the things we wanted to do during the freedom of summer. Far too few items have been checked-off and I am consumed with guilt. Did I drop the ball? Did she have a good summer? Were we overbooked? Did I make enough time for fun?
We did manage to sneak-in a few days at a lake cabin in Big Bear Lake earlier this week. It was fun, but I somehow feel that I should have started the summer with the trip. I feel like I finally relaxed into "summer mode" just in time for school start. Did you have a good summer? Did it slip by for you or do you feel like you experienced to it's fullest? Tell me your secret for doing so.
