It Can't Be!

My September Magnificat came! It can't be almost September, can it?
This Summer has gone too fast. Why can't Summer drag on like Winter does?
Fall is beautiful here in Minnesota and I know soon these beautiful green leaves will turn a beautiful yellow. We have so enjoyed our summer. We have swam in our local pool at least 3 times a week, we have gone to parks, visited friends and played, played, played. We've been to the zoo, we've been on vacation. We do not school in the summer. I figure the kids need a well deserved break and so do I. Summers are so short here in Minnesota so we take advantage of as much as we can. I want the kids to remember their summers as filled with fun! Enjoying this outside world God gave us. The other day when ordering my curriculum, I told Jedi school would be starting in a few weeks and his reply was "What do you mean? September is still summer?" Wouldn't that be nice? Don't you just wish you could freeze time for a year? It would be fun to have a whole year of summer, a whole year of flowers blooming, kids staying the exact same way they are. This morning, when I was on the computer Babycakes was standing on the back of my chair, hugging me and kissing me and playing with my hair. I just wish I could keep her like that forever. Fall brings the promise of kids who have grown 3 inches over the summer months, fading tans, shorter days and time filled with running to soccer, music, dance, Little Crowns and getting up early and hitting the books trying to get as much done as we can. Oh, it's exciting, but kind of sad too. It has it's blessings, blessings of new things to learn, cooler weather, leaf looking, raking and running through leaves, picking apples and pumpkins.


I guess what I'm trying to say is every season has its blessings, we need to love where we are right now. We need to be in the present. Embrace it and love it...even when winter comes.

  2. What a poet you are! My favorite season has always been fall. Here where it's so hot until the end of September, I love the cool, crisp air of October. Last year October didn't come until November. It seemed we were a month behind most of winter. Ha. thanks for the sweet card-what a delightful surprise. You are a good friend! Luv, Nerm

  3. Fall is my favorite time of year!! It would be even better if it wasn't followed by winter, but I still love it!

  4. What a good look back at a wonderful summer. You are blessed to have had all those fun moments with your children. I am blessed to have enjoyed some of them with you!

    I totally agree about living in the moment. The past is gone..the future is unknown...the here and now....even if it is hard....is a time to live.
