Can you feel that? Summer is fleeting. She’s trying to sneak out the back door while we aren’t looking. I don’t know about you, but I’m holding on for dear life. Strawberry lemonade. Long live summer.
Meghan starts school tomorrow. Like full-fledged all-day-everyday school. Tomorrow. I won’t even talk about the emotions going on with sending my oldest to school all day everyday for the first time. Let’s just say she’s more ready for this than I am.
I’m not ready to send Meghan off to school and I’m not ready to say good-bye to summer.
Way back in June when the whole summer lay out before us like a promise, Meghan asked if she could have a lemonade stand. I told her of course she could have a lemonade stand during the summer, sometime before she went back to school. Then, last week, we were talking about school starting and she stopped in her tracks: “Wait! School’s starting and I didn’t have my lemonade stand!” In case you didn’t know, five year olds don’t forget.
So on her last weekend before school starts, Meghan got her lemonade stand. The weather was cool and cloudy, but that wasn’t going to deter her.Print
