Today was our last day to sleep in this summer. The life of a teacher is a charmed one. But we must go back to work tomorrow and my feet are surely dragging.
We have done a lot this summer, in fact, I think we have played harder this summer than ever before. Perpetual barbeques bleed lunch into dinner, one day into the next. Waterskiing until we are sore, frisbee for Jon and running with my girls for me. Kitchen remodel and visits home. Kayaking and paddle boarding in the lagoon.
And sleeping in.
This was the view in our summer bed today, trying to hold onto the last threads of both the season and the sleep.
I am extracting the dread and infusing the joy as I go into Fall; may I enjoy this year as much as I have enjoyed this lovely, lovely summer.
