Highlights: Holding on to Summer

I hate to ruin your day, but it’s best if you know the truth:  there are only 14 days left in August.  Then it will be September.  At church this morning, I feel like every conversation I had was along the lines of “where did the summer go?!”.  So, as I look at my summer goals and my 101 in 1001 list (which I have just 41 days to complete) and my calendar and try to determine how many things I can accomplish before the produce gets boring and the days get short, I thought I’d give all of you some more items to add to your list.  It’s only fair, right?  We should all be in this end of season panic together.
