It's Over. Carefree mornings. Coffee on the deck in my house coat. Unbrushed hair and dirty faces. The hot sun. Swim wear as an all day fashion choice. Cooling off in the dugout. Mid day bike rides. Digging in the mud.
So now, mornings are a lot busier. New haircuts make the hair brushing much easier and quicker. Faces are getting washed. Bike rides are on the weekend. Even so, as we dig out cozy sweaters, and everything pumpkin spiced makes its annual debut and begin looking forward to s**w, now is a great time to reflect on the amazing times we've had over the last few months.
And then this happened. Seriously? She's old enough?
Now our mornings are busy. New haircuts mean easier and quicker prep for school. Lunches are going in school backpacks, not hiking backpacks. And the shoes are built for less rugged terrain.
But, maybe it's not over. Maybe it's just new. Maybe there's still time to visit the larches as they turn yellow. Still time to enjoy the bright yellow against the dark green of evergreen trees. Still time to run up a mountain and enjoy the suns last hurrah before its warmth focuses on the southern hemisphere. Still time for a bike ride on a warm afternoon. Still time for coffee on the deck; but in the afternoon.
What have you still got time for?
Sarah and Cory have a passion for hiking and being out in nature. There is no feeling quite the same as standing on the top of a mountain, sitting by a hidden lake, the jelly legs at the bottom of a steep descent, the sun on your face or the wind in your hair. Even our children have come to love it!
