I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately, and I’m thinking it’s the weather. I know the first day of fall was really last week, but today was the first day it really felt like it. Cool enough for long sleeves, which is most welcome after a sweltering southern summer (try saying that seven times fast). It’s ironic to me that the pools have been closed for several weeks now, since there are probably enough warm days still ahead that you could comfortably swim until mid-October. The Labor-Day-time-to-close-the-pool rule is universal, apparently.
When you have a small child each year is always marked with “firsts”. I will miss that part of having a little one, she is growing so quickly it boggles the mind. This summer marked several of them:
The first “big girl bike” with training wheels… and
Swinging on the big girl swings and learning to “pump”.
It’s been a good summer. I hope yours was too.
