End of Summer

We are halfway through August which means it is almost time to go back to school. I have had quite a busy summer, but then again I do every year. I try to cram everything into two months and there just isn't enough time for everything. I spent quite a bit of time at school in July because I was working on the summer MCAS program. During the few weeks that I have not gone to school I had a couple of fun day trips. I had a family trip to Water wizz and a family trip to Canobie Lake Park. Both days were terrific wish I had more time to do both those trips again. While at water wizz there was a severe lightning storm and everyone had to take shelter in their cars for 45 minutes. The lightning show was incredible. Thankfully no one was hurt.
Shopping has been a constant activity this summer. Jennifer starts college in September so there were lots of things to buy for her dorm room. Not sure that we are finished yet. and of course Bryan needed some new football gear and some back to school clothes.
Jennifer is away this week in Maine. She is a counselor at the KP band camp. Next week Bryan goes to Maine for KP football camp. Once he returns from camp it is time to go back to school.
I better make the most out of the few days I have left.

I have never been to Canobie Lake, but have always wanted to go. Do you think it is better than Water Wizz?!

Ps. I hope you had a fantastic summer with your family and friends!

I find that the summers always go by WAY too fast. Sorry to hear about your dangerous trip to the water park! I usually LOVE thunder and lightning, but being outside is frightening. My sister started college two years ago, and my younger sister and I did much of her shopping for her before she left; we both came to the conclusion that it's much more fun to shop for ourselves!

The feeling of summer ending is just too bittersweet! All good things must come to an end though!
