I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. This week’s word prompt is “back.” We would love to have you join us.

New notebooks, backpacks, glue, folders, Crayons everywhere. It must be the end of summer and back to school time. My sister: a teacher is back in the classroom already. Actually today they’ve already put in two weeks. Some schools I realize don’t start until after Labor Day but not here.

This time of year always make me nostalgic for all those awesome summer trips and summer adventures I took. Arizona, Colorado, Texas, ND State Fair and all those Thursday nights at Summer Nights on Main. I’m ready for Fall as I love all the seasons. But I must admit I wish the seasons didn’t go so fast. I want to go back and dwell in these adventures a little longer.

The air is cooler now which means cozy headed sweatshirts. Pumpkin spice is back at Starbucks. August only has a few days left. And then September (and my birthday) are back for yet another year. Where does the time go?

  1. My grandma used to tell me that the older you get, the faster time goes. Of course back then I probably rolled my eyes but NOW!!!! Oh my goodness, she was 100% right! Seasons come, season go. Birthdays come and birthdays go. Now I’m 60 what??? and my children are in their 30’s! Yes, I too would like to linger at little longer before moving on! Enjoyed this post Tara!

  2. Time does fly so quickly these days! Is it because we’re so busy, or is it because we’re getting older? I’ll go with the busy! LOL! Sounds as if you’ve made some good summer memories. Enjoy your birthday!

  3. Where does the bloody time go,
    and can’t it slow back down?
    Life feels like a rodeo,
    and I feel like the clown.
    Just yesterday, or so it seems,
    I was a hooligan in school,
    with mayhem and my lofty dreams,
    and I thought that I was cool.
    Apparently I have not changed
    though everyone’s got older,
    my priorities weren’t re-arranged;
    my pursuit of them is bolder.
    They say that I have not matured;
    I stayed seventeen, and endured.

  4. Oooh… PSL… I always seem to try to force myself to wait until it is actually October –but really? Why? Why do I torture myself like that? 😉

  5. I was thinking of back to school too but took a different turn. There’s so much ritual attached to fall but rituals can be comforting. They remind us of where we have been and where we are going.
