Here it is, coming up to the end of July, and as long as you stay outside, the summer seems endless. Days are hot and humid, the leaves on the trees are green green green, and fall is nothing but a far-off dream.
But have you been to the mall recently? Or how about Wal-Mart? If so, you may have seen "End of Summer Sale" signs creeping into store windows, or noticed that school supplies have started to edge out the pool toys.
Hmmm. Perhaps fall isn't so far off, after all?
Here's an idea: stay outside and live in the moment. Ride your bike, go camping, swim, hike, or just daydream as you watch the clouds drift by. There's plenty of summer left if you know where to look, so don't let those stores tell you otherwise.
Enjoy the sunshine and make memories; that's what summer is for. And if you do, when fall does finally get here and Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers start up again, you'll have plenty of adventures to share with your friends at 8th Newmarket.
We look forward to hearing about them. But don't worry, we can wait!
