a thing for lakes

I love the ocean. But there's something about the lure of a lake. I think it started with Racing with the Moon and even On Golden Pond. Anyway, we had colds, we never climbed the mountain, but we did make a camp fire, catch fish, play board games, eat bad food and squabbled some too. The boys had to work an hour a day on their summer packets -- the whole idea stinks, but it's just the preamble to the next ten months. Sigh. Goodbye, summer. You were lovely.

the lake looks so peaceful. and summer packets-argh. really...why. tell me why? (but i'm one to think homework the rest of the year is a nuisance, too.)
Glad you're back home, and hope you are all feeling better and back to school.
