The Waning Days of Summer

For several days last week none of my family members were in the same state. My oldest was at Boy Scout camp in Pennsylvania, my other son went to Ohio for a few days to visit my side of the family and I don't even remember where my husband (the airline pilot) was on his three day trip.

I know where I was though. Home. Right here, waiting for everyone to get back. It felt strange to be so scattered. A glimpse of the future though, I guess, when my kids will be off to college, my husband will still be flying all over the world, and I'll be here. Keeping things constant, status quo, so home is where everyone wants to return.

Before summer ends I'm going to enjoy the time we have together before things get too hectic. Although it's already starting! My oldest started playing football this week and his team practices five nights a week! But before summer truly fades the kids will sneak in some more pool time, we'll head to the Outer Banks for our annual beach vacation with three other families, and we'll try, as best we can, to enjoy the waning days of summer!

Here's a sign that the seasons are changing, when you come to the Outer Banks, stop at the old Mann's Harbor/Manteo bridge on an August night - you can see thousands of martins roosting as they make their way south.

Enjoy your trip to the Outer Banks! And I know what you mean about being scattered. It doesn't feel right when my husband is out of town. I need everyone to be under the same roof! Not looking forward to the days when my kids go anywhere without me, either! :(

Its not over yet, but you get the gist of the future when you say how peculiar it is to have everyone gone...
