My kids are not school-aged yet so we're not buying supplies at Target or buying fall clothes or even getting on the bus for school. But with so many around us doing so, it's hard not to feel a bit of impending doom that means winter is around the corner. (Maybe that sounds dramatic, but come on! Last winter was rough!) I intend to savor summer as long as possible here in Chicago where it feels so brief to begin with.
Today, I just thought I'd remember wading through the fountains in the warm sun at Millenium Park while wishing it wouldn't look silly for me to join those kids under the water spout.
