goodbye summer.... you will be missed

this was our last summer moment.

i almost didn't photograph it. i was busy and i thought "yes, they are all playing outside together i can finally accomplish something." then i thought "but what are they up to over there?" and as i watched i discovered they were having a pretend camp fire. then i realized, with the start of school just a few days away, that this would surely be the last fire of the summer. at that point i had to grab my camera and take a few pictures.

the photo was taken in the first week of september. i was certain, at that point, that i was not going to miss summer. the chaotic, completely disorganized days.... the dry, hot weather.... i new i would not miss that. but now, looking back at these photos of that last summer moment.... i suddenly realize that i already miss summer. those sweet, disorganized days of sleeping in and wearing whatever.... those dry, hot afternoons spent almost entirely out of doors... yes... i miss summer. i do believe though, that summer would not be near as special and appreciated if it was not so short and sweet.

goodbye sweet summer.... see you next year.
