Ummm, so how is it that summer is almost over? I mean, really. I feel like the kids just.got.out of school. Normally by this time of year, I am pulling my hair out, wanting them to have more structure to their days and more of a little break for me, but this time I feel differently. Maybe it’s because we really have had such a great time these last few months. Now with less than 2 weeks till school starts for my first grader (ummm, also still in disbelief that I could possibly have a child that old), it’s getting down to the nitty gritty. We are trying to pack a fun activity in every day until August 26th.
Maybe I am a little nervous b/c my oldest is going to a new school and will be away from home for longer than ever before. I am sure it’s going to feel so weird that first week, when he is gone like all day long for 5 days of the week. But, on the other hand, I feel it’s for the best and he will have an awesome school year. I’m already praying for his teacher and the kids that will be in his class.
So anyway, I got my “big camera” out the other day while we were all playing outside. I made this little collage below. This is just a teeny reminder for me of what our summer nights are about. We swim, we play on the fort, we slide, we swing, we are active!! I feel like my boys are getting bigger and growing faster like all of the time. :(( Savoring all the little moments lately….
ps ::: also would like to clarify that Luke is polishing off his bottle of orange Crush in this top left photo. (Can we say sugar overload?!) We have a vintage coke bottle machine & the big boys love getting ‘treats’ out of it after dinner.
