Missing The Quiet

The countdown is on to back to school and the frenzy has already begun.  Mornings are spent in a panic, doing that “last minute” back to school shopping that I fear my girls will remember me for.  Afternoons are crammed with soaking up the sun with friends.  Squeezing in the max beach time and pool time we can.  The evenings are used to start organizing those closets, get ahead on laundry and fight the inevitable insomnia that comes with Back To School.  Today, what I am missing most, is the serenity and quiet times of the lake up north.



Only about 340 days until we can go back. 

Good luck to all these last few panic days before school!

    When they are grown and on their own you will remember fondly the morning chaos and not miss it at all!

    Another countdown started…lol! It is sad that it is Labor Day Weekend 🙁 I want to turn back the clock and have a redo on summer!

  3. I miss these times when my children were little. Time goes by so fast!

  4. I’m not ready for back to school, but I am ready for the kind of quiet that will bring 🙂

    Oh how I detest this time of year.. the rush and panic trying to find the perfect ‘everything’… I will enjoy the quietness and peace the envelops our house every school day at 8:55am until 3:25pm. lol

  7. I miss the cottage as soon as i leave the corner & can’t see it anymore

  9. I know that being on vacation it is always wonderful to get back home but I would love to try that quiet for a few years to see how it really is everyday!!!

  10. I still cannot believe summer is ‘over’… I am really not ready for fall… I feel like we JUST got to the beach/cabin… so not ready!
