We have entered that window of perfect late summer weather. The days are still warm but not unbearably hot or humid. The windows can be open all the time. All meals can be eaten outside.
One of my favorite aspects of seasonal change is the awareness it brings of now and of what is to come. We know these days won't last. A recent cool snap reminded us that autumn is not far off and a colder winter than we've experienced in years (and the girls have ever experienced) will soon follow that.
Right now, there are less than two weeks until school starts, giving us two more weeks of playing, reading, lounging, discovering, enjoying...
Right now, we are soaking in the warmth, the long days and the freedom our lack of schedule provides.
