Awww… I remember being that age, staring at the ocean and getting depressed that school was right around the corner. I seemed to never be able to appreciate where I was at the time… constantly worried about the gloom and doom to come.
My two daughters go back to school nest week, and the energy here this week? Their frenzied insistence that every bit of possible fun be squeezed out of these last remaining days? Their excitement about going back to school coupled with a sadness at losing their freedom?
