End of School | Hello Summer



Today will mark day 7 of summer vacation and I feel like we're not quite in the groove yet...but trying our best to get there.  I've cracked the chore whip and set boundaries for summer screen time...however, our mindset hasn't migrated to the laid-back, easy, cool, summer vibe that I'm anxious to get to.  We waited a LOOOOONG time for end-of-school, so I guess it's just taking a while to RELAX!


This year, the last day of school was rather emotional for me.  I can't put my finger on one specific culprit that caused the tears, but it was some combo of:
  • All 4 of my kids being at the same school this past year (for the first and last time ever)
  • Bennett (my last baby) finishing kinder from the same teacher who taught the 3 girls as well
  • Tyler Bree graduating from elementary
  • And the basic unfairness of time flying by before my eyes

At one point amongst the end-of-school parties, Blake looked directly at me and mouthed, "Pull it together!"  He later told me it was because if I didn't, he thought he might be the one to get emotional.  We're not a very emotional family to begin with, so needless to say, this was a big day for us!




But alas, here we are...looking into next year with a first, second, and fifth grader...and considering homeschooling for our sixth grader.  This last year was definitely one to remember and hold dear to our hearts...I actually consider it somewhat of an anomaly.  But time marches on, babies don't keep, and I'm guess I'm just gonna have to get used to my momma heartstrings being tugged yanked more often. 

Happy Summer Friends!!!!
