Counting the Days

August 12, 2013

At the end of the school year, I sat down with the boys and we created our “Summer To-Do List.” We were looking forward to a fun-filled summer, the kind you grow nostalgic over looking through picture after picture of perfect summer days, browner skin, blonder hair, all grinning smiles and shining eyes…


Then the first day of summer started. OY.

The first day of school vacation was rough. Having both kids at home fighting, whining and annoying each other, I wondered how I was ever going to make it through two months with my sanity in tact.  Well, what remains of it anyway. 😉

Fast forward two months, and sadly, the end of summer is already in sight. In a mere two weeks Tristan will be headed back to school! The summer has flown by and I am pleased to say that we’ve knocked many things off of our To-Do list, and we’ve had a lot of fun in the process. We’ve enjoyed each other’s company and I will certainly miss our adventures when Tristan starts catching that big yellow bus once again. We have taken every chance to squeeze every last drop out of the fabulous bounty summer has provided us with.




And the boys – they’ve become such great pals! Logan is really going to miss his big brother when he heads back to the classroom! As I write, I can hear them playing on the trampoline, giggling so much they can barely breathe. Maybe it’s because they are repeating the word “poop,” but hey, potty words and laughing are waaaaaayyyy better that fighting and whining right? 😉


Two weeks left… we’ll certainly make the best of it!



Happy summer to you!
