Yesterday was Labor Day.
A day of vacation from our day jobs and an extra day off for us to do all those little chores that you never can get done on the regular two-day weekend.
Yesterday was the last day our community pool was open. Luckily the weather was warm, even though the water had cooled down to 76 degrees. (I usually won't get into the pool until July, when the water warms up to at least 80 degrees.) Even so, I braved the chilly water and took one last dip.
The seven year old and her swim team friends had great fun that afternoon in and out of the pool. But many tears were shed when it was time to go home.
Now, it's back to school. Back to work. Back to normal.
