I can't believe you're here already! July flew by. I hope you'll be slower, and last a good long while. I'm not ready to begin thinking about the fall or buying school supplies just yet.
No... I'm looking forward to more mornings of sleeping in. To long, lazy days spent at the beach. To splashing in the waves, and building castles in the sand. To more picnics on the grass, and dinners cooked on the barbeque. To weather so warm that we'll play in the sprinkler after dinner, and sleep with the windows open all night.
It will be fun to have old friends come to stay, and to meet up with new ones. To eat fresh picked peaches, juicy and ripe. To shuck many a cob of corn. To sit up late by the campfire, roasting marshmallows and reminiscing about summers past. To make the most of this summer, right now.
Welcome, August. It's good to have you back.
