I got a little verklempt this evening cleaning up the yard.

As I picked up the toys, saw the water balloon remnants (biodegradable) , hung up the hammock and stood over the bare spots of grass under the tree where Xander spent so much time this summer I was deeply struck by the knowledge it is one more summer of childhood gone.  I think it was a good one.
