Is it over already?


I never would have imagined when I wrote this about the summer starting 9 weeks ago, that it would be over so soon.

Even after the first two days went so swimmingly, we kept at it. We battled the nap skipping, the library book destroying , the weaning, the back talking and the SAHM blues.

We enjoyed play dates with friends, story time at the library, and more Chick-fil-A then we should have ever eaten.

All, in all, the summer went well. I’m sad to see it ending, but I’m sure I will enjoy some adult time at work. Wait…I work with 16 year olds. Oh, well. I will be different and I will try to make it good.

And, at the end of the day, I will still get to do this with my girls (or hopefully something close as I don’t know how much longer the three of us can sit on this chair)!

Where they love each other so much, that they do this…

And, I had to throw this one in. I went into #2’s room last week and she’s learned how to get to a sitting position.

So, it’s back to the grind on Monday (really, Monday already?).

I’m going to try and enjoy this last weekend of summer

  20. I was going to make some smart-mouth, sarcastic comment like, "If your summer went fast, try being a teacher" when I realized that you ARE a teacher. And a mom. And a super-blogger. And a blog designer.

  25. It does seem like this summer flew by. I'm glad you had such a good time with the girls though. I'm jealous of all the teachers who get the summers off with their kids – I went into the wrong profession it seems!
