SUMMER CAMP ENDS...SIGH!
Tomorrow is the last day of summer camp and no one is sadder than me. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids and having them around can be a lot of fun...note can be fun. The thing about summer camp is that it is structured fun, one activity after another. And they all are in age appropriate groups. Next week I become mediator, activity director, referee and parliamentary--the person that keeps the order and of course "mean mommy" when I have to send one or all of them into time out. Summer is winding down faster than I ever remembered and I am a bit melancholy about it. For the record I was never really a summer person, but as I am getting older I find myself enjoying this time; the lazy days, going to the beach, firing up the grill, sandals, flip-flops and yes, cold beer. I am becoming quite the woman of summer. So next week, the count down begins for back-to-school preparations and I know they are looking forward to getting back to their friends and teachers. I am looking forward to school starting back too. But I am not so quick to give up summer...yet. Vanessa Williams sang it best...These are the days, the sweetest days we'll know.
