Good-bye Summer, sob,sob

No, it’s not an ending, it’s a beginning, yes, I know.  It’s the beginning of a new season and a new school year.  Andy and Ben will turn 18 on the 4th!  That is the highlight of the month for me.  After that September is the rotten month, my sister’s 9 year anniversary of her passing on the 10th and then Ryan’s 7th year anniversary of his death on the 21st.

However, I must look back on the summer of 2013. It was great to have all of the boys home for the summer and we were able to spend some time together. William is now off across the country and starting a new beginning as well. Even though I am feeling lonely, I wish him lots of fun and adventure.
