I feel the same way. When I was younger it felt like summer was forever. I was always exited to go back. That's how long it seemed.
Now that I'm in college, and I have to work during my summers, it feels like summer has just started by the time I go back.
Do you think it just has a lot to do with the weather changing?
I've been in Alberta this summer, and our weather didn't warm up until mid July. We've had more rain here this year, then we've had since 1908.
It barely feels like I've had a summer at all, and I go back Sept 19th.
I remember last year in Ontario, Sept, and early Oct was our most consistently hot period.
