Will Someone Tell Summer…

that it is too early to leave? I still have a few weeks left and it is not time for summer to be over. The weather here has been gorgeous…crisp, clear, cool…mid-70s. My favorite kind of weather…if it is fall! But not if it is still mid-August and if I am not ready for summer to be over. This is still beach time and I need beach weather, not football weather!
I keep reading on homeschool lists how folks are starting to think about the next year. Some local schools are getting ready to start in the next week. I keep getting Land’s End and LL Bean emails that have fall clothes and all the stores seem to be full into “Back-to-School” mode.

But summer is not over! I won’t let it be. We still have not decided when to come home (we usually come home sometime in early September). I guess it depends on if summer decides to show her face again. Which I hope that she will. I am not ready to come home. I don’t want to get into our “fall schedule”.

So please, if you happen to see summer, let her know that she does not have to leave. And, yeah, I hear ya. People who get to spend the summer at the beach have no right to complain…

Thanks for letting me whine…

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    I think she’s supposed to show up toward the end of the week. At least here in NoVA the weather folk are calling for 90s Friday and Saturday. I hope so because we’re going to the lake and also want real hot days to laze around in the water.

    Yup! I am right there with you, Steph!
    Summer is my favorite time of the year. I love the more casual days, and the wonderful weather. I adore my time at the beach, although I wish I could spend as much time as you get to. …..One of these days, maybe.
    I’m looking forward to our new school year, but I can wait patiently. Because I want to eek out as much Summer as I can. Have an awesome time during your last few weeks, and I’ll enjoy the beach vicariously through you! 8-)
