With Labor Day behind us, the countdown to the start of the Fall Quarter is on. We are now at T-24 days and many of us are in full back-to-school mode. We are excited to welcome back the Class of 2018-20, pictured above on the last day of the year, all attired in our BAS-AM finest. And, we are equally excited to welcome the Class of 2019-21, who will take part in program onboarding on September 13.
I’m excited about the year ahead. But, I’ll be the first to admit that I’ll miss the more relaxed pace of summer work, the long evenings, the chance to be outside golfing, gardening, grilling, reading, exploring, ambling in the countryside with my puppy, being on the water, eating ice cream, the list of summer adventures is long. I’m bottling up memories of an unforgettable summer and when things get hectic in the fall, I’ll uncork this bottle. I’m hoping that as these memories waft through my mind, it will make things seem just a little less frantic.
What about you? What will you be remembering to keep you grounded once memories of a leisurely summer become all too distant?
