~ First Day Of September ~

Today was so sad.

Mostly because summer leaves us so completely. 

Critter gets quiet every year about this time.

Not for long, mind you, but you can tell he’s doing a mental farewell to the freedom and energy of summer.

We went for a pensive walk as a family, but Critter wanted to walk ahead alone with his thoughts.

We did a little creek exploring, but Critter wanted to stop and build a dam by himself.

We talked a bit about our goals for this coming school year, but Critter remained silent.

And during all of this, I walked into about 40 spider webs, give or take a couple hundred, resulting in my “HOLY-GUACAMOLE-GET-IT-OFF-GET-IT-OFF-GET-IT-OFF!” dance.  This made Critter laugh.  FINALLY.

I hate those dingdang things.

But if it brings Critter out of his back-to-school funk, I’ll walk face-first into a couple hundred more.
