You know what is sort of hard for me? It was hard last spring to see everybody else's kids get out of school for the summer while mine still had weeks left. Weeks I tell you! I am also finding it hard to watch everybody else's kids start school before mine.
It's odd though. I have this tug of war of opinions inside. If you had asked me at the beginning of August I'd have told you I can not wait. Please! Get them out of the house for a bit! But then the end of summer happened and oh you end of summer you. You are a game changer. Family trips and hot sunny days and then another family trip. My children are so pleasant during this, the lazy days of summer. So now that I've started to really enjoy our days, tomorrow is meet the teacher. Then one last vacation hurrah up in Duluth. Then there's the first day of school on the very same day that grandma and grandpa leave.
Well, we certainly are waving the summer out with a bang!
