Writing Workshop Wednesdays (5)

Tomorrow my squirts start school.  I have one who is excited, and one who is devastated.  We do our best to make this last day memorable to us.  Today, we are going to swim to our hearts’ content at a new (to us) aquatic center.


So, how would you spend your last day of summer?  Consider this last day using all five of your senses (if possible).
