This day officially marks the end of our Summer vacation.
As you read this my children are already in school. They are meeting up with friends. Participating in the Rose ceremony. And, remembering the beauty of school and the adventures to be had.
They are sad to see summer go but then aren't we all a bit melancholic as one season ends. Especially one that is to be enjoyed so fully?
The task as a parent has been to honor this sadness mixed with excitement. To remember the memories and then turn them ever-so-slightly to see the new memories to be made in an entirely new season.
A time when the air becomes cooler each morning as we ride bikes to school. The season when leaves change in ever dramatic shades day by day. The season of soups, sweaters and festivals. It's a good season too, my favorite in fact, and I look forward to sharing this yet again with them.
And really, the bracelets alone should be memory enough to show for a summer well done don't you think?
Happy Wednesday to you all.
