Summer used to last longer that it does now, didn't it? Back when I was in school (you know, when those dinosaurs were hanging around), we never started school until after Labor Day and those extra two weeks or so made for a full 3 months of lazy days and lots of play.
Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to school being in session again, but by doing so, I'm already dreading the end of summer, cause with the start of school, it means that there are only a few more weeks of it left. (Even though we don't really have any Autumn weather until late October/early November here).
I love long days of sunlight.
I love being warm.
I love seeing everything green and growing.
Last night we went to the Parent's Open House at school. I filled out the usual forms, paid class fees, bought a new journal for Zach to record his assignments in, picked up a list of supplies he'll need, and spoke to his homeroom teacher. He had this teacher in the 4th grade so he was happy to have her again this year. I didn't meet his other two teachers but hope to be able to do that soon.
I sure hope he has a good year this year because next year he'll be over in the High School building with the big kids and have a few more teachers.
