I love the 4th of July, but at the same time it's always sad when it's over. It's a date that usually means that summer is already half over and is quickly coming to an end.

When I was a kid, seeing school supplies on the store shelves meant summer was on the way out the door.

Sadly enough, not only is the 4th of July over, BUT school supplies are already on store shelves! It's all happening too fast!
