Where Did Summer Go?

My 6-year-old started first grade. It’s been hard for me to grasp this.  It feels like she was just born yesterday.  My 11-year-old will be starting middle school soon.  This will be her first year in middle school.  I don’t want to even think about it yet.

I tried to hold tight onto summer.  In the last few days before my 6-year-old started school I found ways to go to an amusement park and have a picnic up in the mountains. It was fun and kept me from thinking too much about all the changes.

Snow, Go Away

I’m not mad at you, Snow.  I kinda just want Spring here for a bit before Summer brings on her extremely high and dry heat.
