the beginning of the end of summer
This week has given me that feeling I get when I see the first leaf fall from the tree. The weather has cooled off a bit, from muggy to blue-sky glorious. The first fall L.L. Bean catalog arrived in the mail. And on Tuesday, we said goodbye to our summer nanny, Kiersten, who started medical school orientation the next day. I've chosen not to blog too much about our nannies here, so I won't say anything more except that we loved her and will really miss her. Our new nanny, Anna, started on Wednesday, and we like her, too. Interesting how the change from summer nanny to fall-and-beyond nanny has felt like such a big transition — not just in people, but in seasons. Before I know it, I will be pulling out the fall sweaters and wearing socks again.
