I know the seasons often seem to slip easily into years, but this summer truly has gone by with the blink of an eye! It’s been so fast-paced, I hardly feel like we’re in July, let alone August! The calendar tells a different story though, so I’ve been working away at homeschool planning over the last few weeks. I’ve been shoulder-deep in curriculum writing for our upcoming co-op school year, as well as prep work for my four charges at home. And while I absolutely adore homeschooling my precious children and leading my students at co-op, I’m simply not ready for the summer to come to a close yet.
Interestingly, we’ve had fairly mild August weather, so the cooler mornings and evenings tell me it’s about that time. I even found a pretty yellow leaf in the backyard, fallen from one of the tulip trees. Sigh. The time has arrived for the seasons to change. Bring on the new school year.
