26 Aug when summer comes to an end

My guess is that I’ll find the words soon enough. That I’ll sit down at my keyboard the day I drop my daughter off for her first day of high school and my heart will pour out. It happened on the first day of Kindergarten, just like that. And I sobbed. That was nearly 10 years ago.
I’m not in exactly sure how it will all go down this time, all I know is there are only a few days left before summer comes to end and with that, a part of her childhood is ending too.
On the cusp of such big things, I shot this image the other night at a friend’s pool. For now, it says everything.

Sweet… I am a sap like that. 🙂 Hated summer break being over. We are back in school for a week now. And still sad.
I have really been trying to embrace each part of the year… season by season. ( i am in Ut. so we do have at least 4 seasons…)
And fall i struggle with. Love spring, and adore summer! Thanks for sharing, and opening up part of your heart!

i go through a sort of mourning every august. it starts creeping in as soon as the solstice has passed. and with every passing day i start to feel it's weight bearing down. and then, just like that, it's all over and something new begins. i wonder every year why, if this causes me such angst, am i doing it wrong?

Tracey … such a beautiful photo! … < sigh > … And you've stated what every mother feels. My daughter is 34 and now I find myself reliving the same emotions with my 4-year old granddaughter, who lives very near to us.
I think it's called "life".

The transition to high school really is a big deal..and the time flies so fast. Such a beautifully evocative image – of a young girl..coming of 'age'!!!

I was just thinking that as this year is a big year for my oldest in less then a mth he will turn 13. Wasn't I just holding his hand so he would learn to walk? We will plan as next year he will go HS & my youngest will enter Kindergarten..OH the mess I will be but just like that I have the honor of watching them spread their wings & fly.. but for now I'll keep dreaming w/the few last days of Summer we have left…
