8 Things I Know For Sure About Summer

I don’t know much, but I know I love summer. Is that not how the song goes? Oh.

In any case, I really don’t want summer to end. It seems like everyone around me is gearing up for fall – sweaters! boots! football! pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING! – and I really try to match the excitement, but I just can’t muster it up.

Summer just doesn’t last long enough. I need more corn on the cob and frozen lemonade and al fresco dining and daylight that lasts and lasts.

(Also, I don’t like the taste of pumpkin.)

But now that school is starting and Labor Day is just days away, I must accept the fact that the countdown to fall is on. So to celebrate my favorite season as it drifts away, here are 8 Things I Know For Sure About Summer:

1) Dreaming Of Being A Lifeguard Is A Childhood Rite Of Passage

  1. Taking the leap! Gah! Where is that? Looks like it could be Tiverton! When I see kids doing that I always tell my kids – don’t ever do that! Too dangerous! That’s quite a crowd! I do love summer. SO sad to see it go, but excited for all things fall.

  2. I was just saying the same thing about summer being too short during our first soccer practice last night! It seemed so long when school got out but yet, it’s now over! I think the only thing that I would add is that you can never have enough pool time in the summer months! Here’s to a great Fall!
