Beach Lover

August 8, 2012

See that little one running?

That’s one of my beach babes…

the youngest.

I wish I could stop time,

maybe slow it down a bit.

Today, I went with the boy to buy his books.

He’s a middle schooler now.

Before we know it,

it’ll be early mornings,

drives to school

and afternoons spend doing homework.

I’m relishing these last few weeks of summer.

And I’m already counting the days until next year!!!

xo, Susi

    Lovely quote, and what a beautiful photo! I know what you mean, I’m hanging on to every little bit of summer that I can, because Fall brings a lot of change to our house!

      Yes, fall does bring a lot of changes with it. A new school year, new kids, new classes etc. So, I’m enjoying these last few weeks and get ready for the new school year.

    I wish I understood that quote when I was little. Enjoy the rest of summer!

      I think we all do. But even though I grew up, I still love the beach… 🙂

    I just can’t believe it’s school time already. Seems absolutely nuts! I hear ya on looking forward to next summer already!

      In some parts of the country kids have already returned to school. We still have a few weeks but I still can’t believe summer is basically over. I have appointments scheduled left and right!

    Gorgeous picture up there, Susi1 Everyday I think about how fast the kids are growing up (and how we’re growing old). If only we can stop time, just a little bit… We start school the week following the next. Gotta get back into school hours soon! Blah!

    • Susi August 12, 2012 at 12:59 am

      Thanks. Yes, we go back soon. The 27th… and I’m trying to get up a little earlier again to start getting used to it…
