OK~ Here we are in August in Iowa. The corn is tall and starting to lose some of that rich, beautiful green color. Our gardens are booming with tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, and about everything else you can imagine. The Iowa State Fair is happening, as well as those school bells. I was driving down a street in town today, and it was so bare. I wondered, "Where is everyone?" Well, I thought about that...People are probably taking in the last few days of summer vacation at the beach, shopping for school supplies, or maybe out of town on vacation. In a couple weeks this stretch of road will be actually crazy with traffic!
The calendar says summer, but our families are switching to the Fall season. This Mom is going to call it summer for another month, just like the calendar says! Those crazy sweaters are NOT coming out for quite sometime, as they were packed away the middle of June. The locusts, or whatever they are called, are buzzing like crazy, which tells me the cooler weather will come, if I like it or not! For now, my feet are loving open toed shoes and this body loves the warmer weather!
So....for now, my 16 year old continues to enjoy sleeping in and being a typical teen, as that yellow bus will be arriving in the wee hours of the morning in a relatively short amount of time. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
