Last Day of Summer

Memaw cuddles Collin!

Papa loving on the boys!

Tomorrow school starts, for Connor at least.

I'm approaching the start of school with mixed emotions:

I'm not going to miss....

-luging four kids to the grocery store each week,
-having a to do list that barely gets touched,
-cringing at a house that looks as if four boys have spent a lot of time within its confines,
-breaking up fights, fights and more fights, and
-constantly cooking, eating, and cleaning up dishes (and they're not even teenagers yet!)

I am going to miss:

-hours spent frolicking in splash parks and pools,
-watching two boys learn to swim (and one jump off the diving board),
-taking day trips to interesting and new locations,
-preparing more elaborate breakfasts with no rush to get out the door,
-lounging around in pajamas for a few hours later than normal,
-watching Caleb devour books and develop a passion for fiction,
-observing Connor conquer his fear of swimming in the deep,
-seeing Cooper build relationships with neighborhood kids and engage in creative imaginary play, and
-visiting out-of-town friends and family, and
-taking mini-vacations.

It had to end sometime...wonder what's to come?
