These photos are my official goodbye to the summer of 2013. Since our school year started a week later than usual this year, we were able to still enjoy summer in the US after our long stay in France. Now, with almost a full week of school and activities under our belt, I can feel the rhythm of our lives already changing. I suppose I can take relief in looking at some of these photos and reminisce during the long school year ahead.
Don’t get me wrong. I am ready for the fall. I love the changing colors of leaves around us, the crispness in the air and the lack of humidity outdoors. I cannot wait to eat a freshly baked apple pie, sip a hot cider and spend some time indoors curled up with a good book.
So, goodbye summer! I am almost ready for fall.
