Sunshine and Shade and Water to Wade
Happy August! It’s one of the last months of summer yet I feel like it was the 1st of June just yesterday. Pretty soon the kids will be going back to school, blow-up pools will be packed away, and we’ll all be swapping out our sandals for rain boots.
While the beginning of a new season is exciting (bring on those pumpkin spice lattes!), the closing of one can be a little bit sad. That’s why it’s so important to make the most of these last Pacific Northwest summer days. Fire up that barbecue, slather on that sunscreen, and cannon-ball into that pool!
I recently came across a children’s poem that made me smile so wide I knew I had to share it with you.
Why I like Summer
It’s sun and shade, it’s water to wade
It’s frogs and bugs, it’s grass for rugs
It’s eating outside, it’s a tree-swing ride
It’s tomatoes and corn, it’s dew in the morn
It’s warm starry nights, it’s road-trip sites
It’s a hot sunny sky.
It’s summer, that’s why!
From all of us here at Guardian we hope you and your family enjoy the month of August! It has been our privilege to serve you in the Summer, Fall, Spring and Winter.
