Yesterday my kids woke up at some ungodly hour, even by their early-riser standards. The first day of school. The first day of Kindergarten for my wee daughter. Off they went, as calm as can be, wearing backpacks that dwarfed them. Even a winter-loving person like me is wondering where summer disappeared off to at such a swift rate.
Still, I think that we made the most of it.
We saw boats, rented boats and took boat tours.
We saw lots of mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and insects up close.
We encountered history long gone, being relived, and frozen in time.
I really enjoyed nosing around the ghost town. My husband was far too fascinated by the outhouses, mind.We went to free concerts at the park, free movies at the park, free movies at the beach, cheap movies at the drive-in and a ridiculously expensive movie at the cinema.
Hmm, the windscreen could do with a clean...
There were lakes, rivers, waterfalls, paddling pools, wading pools, swimming pools and an ocean.
There were loud moments (he got a home run from that hit)...
and lazy moments.
Summer, I feel bad for dreading you. Oh, and thank you for not being as hot as previous years, too...
