Oh, those summer nights

We've been enjoying some fairly nice weather this August, the best night being last weekend. The temps were warm, the skies clear and the moon full. The perfect summer night. Made even better by the addition of a dozen or so of some of the the most awesome teens/young adults I know who hung out around our fire for a bit.

Oh summer nights......soon to be fall. I'm keenly aware of the passing of time and summer coming to a close. One more week and College Boy will be heading back to school. The days even now are starting to get shorter.

If I had seen the meteor shower a couple of weeks ago, I would have wished on the shooting stars for a longer summer. It seemed so long in coming and so quickly flown by. But nature knows these things are not to be. The seasons must change, the wheel must turn.

Do I sound a bit blue? Ya, I always hate the end of summer. * o

For the first time ever, I didn't experience what you are going through, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Our college boy (our youngest) now has an apartment and a good job in the town where he goes to school, and wanted to take summer classes, so he didn't move home this summer. Very strange, since it was their comings and goings that always marked the seasons for us. Well, if you want longer summers, move to Texas. We can guarantee you at least another month of highs in the 90s.
