Writer's Workshop - Summertime

List 6 things you are going to miss about summer.

Ethan and I head back home
next weekend.
I can't believe our vacation
is almost over.
We've had a great
summer vacation. 
Summers home are fabulous.
There's so much to see and do.
So here are some things
we will miss about this summer.

1) Going to baseball games

With Scott home this year
we were able to go to a 
couple of games.
And while we hoped to go to more
with us leaving, 
we're done for this summer.

2) Seeing this girl

She lives here.
We don't.
So summer coming to an end
means it will be another year
before we see her again.

3) BBQ with the family

since we don't live here,
we cherish the BBQ
with cousins.

4) Going to museums

We've gone to a few this summer
and had a great time
at each one.

5) The Nisbets

It's not often
we get the three generations

6) Being a tourist in your hometown

We went for a boat ride.
Something I probably wouldn't normally do.
But being a tourist 
is a lot of fun.

We've had a fantastic vacation this year.
And while we're sad to go,
it that time of the year,
we need to head back home.
And start planning next year's

'being a tourist in your hometown' - it's funny what we appreciate when it's no longer a regular part of our lives. Glad to see you've had a great summer and made a lot of memories to take back home with you.

It must be awfully hard to leave, but you always make the best of things wherever you are. At least, that's my impression of you...

Looks like you had an amazing summer. Funny how things we take for granted become so much more enjoyable when we don't see them as often. Thanks for sharing! M

Bringing the generations together is something I treasure. It is hard to see trips like this end, isn't it?~May

I would say that's the best kind of vacation... being a tourist in your own hometown. One year, for a family reunion, we planned a photo scavenger hunt of places we frequented as youth. We got rained out, but I still have that list and look forward to going on that hunt someday. Living memories in all my favorite places. Can't wait!
