I want a do-over!

Summer, is just never long enough is it? I know some say they can’t wait to get their kids back in school and back to “normal”, but the season itself just goes by too fast.

We really do enjoy the fall and the back to school transition here. The newness of all of the activities and the familiarity of most. Autumn is really my favourite season (and it’s not long enough either). I love change, and there seems to be an extra abundance of it in the fall.

I love the fall foliage. I love starting dance and music lessons again. I love the cool dry air. I love running with fallen leaves crunching under my feet, in long pants and long sleeve shirts, while cool enough to enjoy the workout.

Yet, I despair the end of summer. We’re an active family and summer just flies by too fast, with the alternating vacations between here and their dad’s, with grandparents who also want time with their little ones, and with the desire to explore, there’s never enough time to just enjoy the relaxed mode of summer at home. This summer we stayed put once again for our vacation. Two weeks of hanging at the lake, afternoon trips to the ocean, and a couple of playdates with friends. But, summer is coming to a close and I feel gypped! We only get those two short weeks at home, doing fun family summer activities?

It’s simply not enough. I want a do-over.

My problem is that I always get excited about summer activities in winter and winter activities in summer.
