Live It Up

Monday, August 22, 2011

This is the last week of freedom. The last week of summer. School starts next week. Kids will be too busy with homework to come swimming at dusk; the baseball field will be laying neglected in the dusty heat; the cornfield will miss the sound of laughter drifting through the wind.

Summer, I will miss you.

I want to live it up this week. I want to lay in the grass finding pictures in the clouds. I want to run through the cornfield, tripping and laughing. I want to go swimming until 9 at night. I want to just hang out; play volleyball, baseball, kickball, whiffleball. Just sit outside and be bored. Sit at my open window with just me and the night.                                                              

This summer has been awesome. I've done a lot. I've learned a lot. I had a lot of fun. And this week has to be the best week ever. I want it to be. I want to look back at this week on Monday and say, "Yep. I'm ready for school cuz I had a great last week." The only problem I see with this plan is that it will make me miss summer more...
