The last day of summer

August 27, 2011

The definition of anticipation in the Webster dictionary: "Foretaste; previous view or impression of what is to happen afterward; as, the anticipation of the joys of heaven."

I love waking up lazily in the morning and realizing that something wonderful is going to happen today. Then all throughout the morning, I can anticipate and look forward to this wonderful something or another.

We went swimming at the lake.  {The only lake around I think}.  It was most beautiful.  The water was a grayish greenish muddy blue.  Those huge hills were all around us making for the prettiest place to go fishing and swimming.

The boys *tried* to fish but since this only their perhaps fifth time and there were only girls there to help them, they really didn't get to do much except throw the line and hope for the best.  Morgan and I oohed and ahhed over the prettiness of the water and the hills all around us. 

Swimming?  Yes!  We shed our shoes and raced to the water.  It was the perfect temperature- not too cold and certainly not too warm.  It was kind of nice- we were the only ones there for about 2 hours.


Perhaps we did get all burnt and blistered by the sun- but you know what?  It was well worth it because it was the last day of summer- at least for us.  We enjoyed it completely.
Lovely water, drawing on the sand, little girl in crocs, boys playing happily in the water...  I love summer and sure am going to miss it.  School, fall, snow, winter, here we come! 
Have a blessed week.

I would have loved to do that! Except for the fact that I am afraid to swim in a lake, river, pond, and definitely not the ocean!!! Just the thought of not being able to touch the bottom or not knowing if anything is about to touch me. Great pics!!!

Thanks Melinda :-) you may have liked this lake though- you could see right through the water and it was pretty shallow. Perfect for little people like my siblings Aidan and Morgan.
