The Bittersweet End of Summer in Minnesota

“I miss snow,” my son declared from the backseat. “Bite your tongue,” I thought to myself as we absorbed the hot summer day. It was only months ago that we were inside our house bunkering down because of the cold weather. Yet, here we were in the next seasonal change, I didn’t want to go […]
