Today as I was driving home after playing tennis, I saw it: the huge tractor trailer parked in an empty lot near my house. Every year it returns, although I swear that each year it arrives earlier and earlier. As I drove past, I thought about the end of summer, the start of school and the coming of fall. I better get a few more beach days in, and take that hike that overlooks the ocean that I’ve been meaning to get around to. This trailer … it means that summer is ending. This trailer means that school is starting. This trailer is painted on the side with HUGE orange letters: PUMPKIN PATCH!
Tell me about the end of summer in your household. Does it mean back-to-school shopping? A last ditch family road trip? I’d love to hear your stories. Just leave a comment below.
