Summer in Review

I can't believe summer is over.

I can't believe starting tomorrow my babies will be going to school for a few days a week. Contrary to popular feelings, I am sad to not have them under my wing every day. I am sad I won't get to see their sweet (and sometimes not so sweet!) faces all day long. I am going to miss them like crazy.

I absolutely love everything about summer. I love the sun and pool and beach. I love the daylight until late into the night. I love the carefree attitude and lack of schedule. I love the freedom of summer and all of the celebrations and holidays that come along with it. I love the traveling and the visitors. I love summer.

And I am definitely sad it's over.

We did so much this summer! I have loved looking back at the fun memories we made together. Sometimes it was all four of us, but most of the time it was just the three of us- my little buddies and me. I know my kids won't remember what we did all summer long, but I will. And that's enough to keep this momma going all school year long.
