We said goodbye to my mother in law last night; always a sad thing to do. The house feels empty now. As much as I hate to say it, I'm beginning to feel a hint of fall in the air. The leaves outside my bedroom window are getting brown around the edges. We're wearing sweaters in the mornings and evenings. I have to stop myself from thinking, every time we do something, "I wonder if this is the last time we'll do this, this summer". I feel chest pain when I think of this little boy starting full day pre-kindergarten five days a week, exactly two weeks from today. I wonder, will the boys be this content next summer; will happy still be so simple?
I cannot avoid noticing how dramatically the light changes by the day.
Our garden continues to grow.
