Busy, Busy, Busy

Remember when you were younger?  I know for some of us it takes longer to remember this!  Summer seemed to last forever.  What happened to those days?

I was talking to a friend about the summer today.  We were talking about canning, gardening, getting things done... Then we started discussing how fast summer is going and how we will be back to homeschooling before we know it!  I almost cried.  We have been trying really hard to enjoy our summer this year, yet it's flying by.  We went to Skyline and enjoyed the beautiful view.  We have fished, swam, cooked out... Still, we haven't even come close to doing everything we planned.  What is going on with time?

Are we all just overbooking ourselves?  I mean technology is supposed to make life easier.  Maybe it's just making us burn out faster.  I feel like I have been battling bugs in my garden for months when in reality it's just been about 2 weeks steady.  Has technology changed our view of time?  I really don't know the answer.  Somehow, though, we have got to slow down!

How about you?  How is your summer going?  Is your schedule crazy busy as well?  Would love to hear your thoughts.  I'll leave you with a picture from Skyline Drive.  I love the mountains.
