Every year at this time I get the blues. When summer ends and school starts the thoughts that go through my mind drag me down. Another fun summer of carefree kid days gone, another family summer vacation done until next year, the kids will be another year older next summer, I WILL BE another year older next summer….and so on and so on. How can anyone be happy at the return of the school season???? I LOVE my kids being home!!!
In carrying on the tradition of feeling sad and sorry for myself for a few days, I hid myself in garden chores, baking and barn work. Slowly I am returning to the happy person I usually am, but it’s a battle that’s hard won!!
Here are a few recaps of the wonderful times we had this year so far:
Tons of time sleeping in our cabin and spending time as a family
A GREAT book for summer reading, bonfires every night for heat in the spring and to cook on…and a few date nights on the boat!
Fun in the barn with friends, farm work, canning, late night selfies and sandboxes were all enjoyed.
So goodbye Summer of 2016 and welcome Fall and Winter. Only 13 1/2 weeks until Christmas Vacation…..but who’s counting….me…yes me me me!!
