Unfortunately, summer never ends when you spend spring and fall on the equator. Pretty much ever. I will have had summer from Jan 15 to Dec 21 this year, and I am SOOOO ready for a nasty Boston winter in January 2017!

It feels over once the calendar turns to September, but only is official on Labor Day weekend, and then it all sinks in once school starts (but only if you go to a place that isn't on some insane Quarter system like mine and school begins on Sept 20th).

We end in mid-June. The whole thing is designed to get 5 paying terms out of the year (3 quarters plus 2 summer sessions) rather than 2 semesters plus 1 summer semester. Total racket.

School starts on August 22 here, and Halloween crap is already available at our local HyVee. It's still summer!

For me, summer ended today, because I remembered what persimmons taste like.
