“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James
Tuesday, September 2nd
The last day of summer. It is a gem in the year of days and one to be savored wholeheartedly.
We joined our cohousing neighbors for a Back-to-School meal – hot dogs, burgers, and root beer floats. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the fresh air and last chance to gather before school started up on the 3rd. And as cohousing tradition dictates, the kids lined up from youngest to oldest and talked about where they would be going to school and what they were looking forward to learning this year. My little guy told everyone he was going to “Mama T School” (he’ll be doing a home preschool with me) and my daughter shied away from the spotlight.
It’s a sweet thing to honor the growth and development of our children regardless of how they learn or what they study.
What did you do on your last day of summer?
