Caleb's Last Summer Day

I let Caleb pick a special last day of summer activity. He selected a visit to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. The boys had a blast.

When Caleb arose, I reminded him it was his last day of summer.

In a blithe manner, he replied, "Summer was a blast."

So true.

I spent most of today eagerly anticipating the return of one more child to school. But tonight, as I'm writing this blog, feelings of melancholy wash over me. Caleb's a third grader. THIRD GRADER. When did he get so old?

Even though, I'm ready to return to the familiarity of a school schedule, my hearts aching just a bit that another one of my little boys is becoming not so little.
