Just sneaking in a few more summer photos before I succumb fully to fall.
It's hard to watch summer waning. I still remember the creeping dread I felt as a child knowing that September was drawing steadily nearer, the first day of school looming ever closer. I didn't hate school—it was just tough to give up summer's precious freedoms. Now I watch my kids go through the same thing. One's in middle school now. He took one step forward and didn't look back. More than him, I have to remind myself that where one era ends, other opportunities begin.
