It seems a bit like a dream that we are already in the last full month of summer. I have a lot of mixed feelings about it being August – the school year is approaching faster than I’m prepared for, which subsequently means I’ll be transitioning back to working in the building full-time, but on the other hand, I am looking forward to making the most of the warm and sunny days ahead.
July seemed to fly by, and I’m sure August will be the same. We don’t have many travel plans this month, so we are hoping to kayak, spend time at the pool, and maybe make another trip to the beach. Either way, we plan to spend as much time as possible slowing down and being present to savor the end of this season.
