I suffer from seasonal emotional issues. It’s weird. I can still feel the cool mountain breeze on my cheeks from my fall days walking the campus of Virginia Tech…and my heart still sinks just a little in sadness. Just a little. I hate to see the summer go. So with these few weeks left in summer, before the cool evenings turn the waters brisk, we are savoring the warmth.
And no, we haven’t technically started homeschooling yet, but we are learning. My mother-in-law is part of a save the sea turtles team at her South Carolina home. We went on two turtle digs with her, and got to see the eggs recovered and counted once the turtles had hatched. We were hoping to find a few turtles still in the nest, but no such luck for us, all the turtles from both our nests had made it to the sea. Of course for the turtles, that is a good thing, but we so badly wanted to help guide at least one baby down to the water.
