A Most Dreaded Day

     The dark mood hung in the air like a morning mist over the water. A feeling of impending doom sent us all to bed earlier than normal last night. Then it happened. "BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!" 5:30AM and time to get up for the first day of school.

     It isn’t that we don’t like school in our family it’s just that we despise waking up before the sun has risen.  We don’t like to go to bed early and we don’t like that school signifies the end of summer as we know it. No more lazy days of fishing from the dock, swimming beneath the hot sun or heading out in the canoe on a whim. 

     We must wait for the weekend to enjoy our free time once again and we must wait for Fall, Winter and Spring to be over for Summer to return in all her glory and freedom she brings.
