can you believe that it is almost september? where did the summer go, oh wait here in minnesota spring didn't come until mid may! normally i am all about fall but this year i am okay if it doesn't come for a while. this might be because i feel like this summer was so great, it was the first summer of our marriage and we were so blessed to do so many things -getting out to the lake, going on long walks, looking at the pretty sailboats on lake harriet and always picking up a little ice cream for me. it was so refreshing, just like how summer is suppose to be. also, nannying in the summer is always my favorite. there is just an abundance of activities and life all around you. it is so easy just to pack up your stuff and head out to the lake to walk and play, followed by a quick picnic lunch. truly what could be better? you just feel the exciting buzzing around with all of the kids running and screaming in the park. the other day the little babe and i headed out to the beach and did a little water grazing. it was so fun to see her reaction to the water and the coolness of it. then we headed over and made mini sand castles, though they were nothing to brag about, or take pictures of, it was so fun doing such a tactile activity with her. she really loves spending times outdoors and so do i, so we make a great outdoor team and spend as much time outside as we can!
... however fall is coming quicker then i realize. and these super hot days are coming to an end. for me, fall always seems like a new year. and i am excited for it. i am excited to see how things continue to change and develop as i am merging into "adulthood". though it is scary... and i am not quite ready for fall, i am ready for those pumpkin flavored beverages and crisp fall mornings. and apples. and the leaves changing colors. ah, fall here you come ready or not!
