Reflections on Late Summer

Watering flowersI am never in a back to school mode until after Labor Day. It is a by-product of growing up in an era when school didn’t start until after the 1st of September and the last few weeks of August were treasured for the fleeting days of summer. School seems to start earlier each year and what used to be a quiet period during the summer for my office is also part of bygone days. Summer is anything but quiet. Schools may be closed but as all of our parents know, disability doesn’t take a summer vacation. This means that for parents and many children with disabilities the struggle goes all year. Summer becomes the time to gear up for the next hurdle with the school or to play catch up with skills that will be needed for the next grade. This week,  having realized that I was about to miss summer entirely, I determined to do something fun every week for the next three weeks. I too remember when my own son was being tutored while his friends were swimming or otherwise doing something other than school on a hot August day and I committed to enjoy summer and remember how quickly they pass.
