Well, this is it, the last day of August. Summer is pretty much over and the kids are heading back to school this week. I have my girls all set and ready to roll, but I’m not sure I’m ready. I like the slower pace in the summer; I actually have less driving around to do. Now it’s back to after school practices every day and weekend games, stopping on my way home from work and waiting for practice to end before going home to make dinner. I’m so glad I have family to help otherwise I would have to be in two places at once, twice a week one need to be picked up at the same time the other needs to be dropped off. But I guess I’m ready, and routine makes it easy to get into and stay in the groove.
Since the warm weather will be getting cooler I had to get to the beach this past weekend. It was such a nice day on Sunday; it was sunny and warm, perfect for a beach day. We got up and on the road early to avoid traffic, plus we went to Sandy Hook, and that fills up quickly so it’s always better to get there early. The water was pretty warm and surprisingly there was no seaweed or jellyfish. It can be tough to swim in August sometimes because of one or both but not this time. We spent hours in the water. The water was calm and you could walk quite fare before it got deep, so we were pretty fare out swimming and jumping waves. Between that and walking around in the sand I got my workout in. I am wiped out as I sit her writing this, and will probably be in bed quite early. I’m glad we were able to get there just in case it’s the last time for this year. It’s always possible that we will head down again for the holiday weekend, and maybe even hit the board walk in the fall of the weather is nice enough. Anyway it was a perfect day and I’m glad we got it in before school starts.
While I hold onto the last little bit of summer, I am also excited about all the fun things the fall has to offer. Life is good when you make the time to do the things you love with the people you love.
Have a wonderful week everyone!!
