Summer's End

Today is the final day of August!
Tomorrow is September and I am suddenly thinking about fall. It is getting dark earlier and the nights have begun to cool down. I am ready to pull out my boots and try on my new leather jacket!
I am looking forward to soup and pumpkin bread. The kids are already preparing for Halloween.
This month I want to go apple picking, make applesauce, and have one last cookout. September will also bring Zackary's 1st birthday! What a wonderful year it has been.

I will say goodbye to August with this thought:

"Can you imagine what the world would be like if all the mothers in the world were exactly alike in how they behaved, in their approach to motherhood, and in the strengths and talents they shared with their families? I confess I feel great relief in knowing that we can each be our own kind of mom, a complete original unlike any other mother on the face of the planet. If we as mothers do something we absolutely love alongside raising children we absolutely love, we will almost guarantee that our children will be raised in an atmosphere steeped in joy."
