Summer is Winding Down

Today was the last day of summer for Felicia and Brandon. Michael started school this past Monday and Aaron starts next Monday. So, our summer fun is coming to an end.We just hung out together around the house today. We had no plans to do anything but just relax and gear up for the start of a new school year.

While enjoying our final moments of summer, it occurred to me that this is the first summer that I have ever had with just my kids. No job to take up my precious time. No extra kids to care for. Just us! Spending days by the lake watching my kids splash in the cool water, while having my toes buried in the sand. Cheering on my boys during their backyard football games. Catching fireflies and giggling with the girls when Felicia left them escape in the house. This is truly the perfect job for me! I wouldn't go back to my old life even if I was paid triple!

As I send two more of my kiddos off to school tomorrow, I will have some fond memories of the best summer ever!


  1. Hope this school year is great for everyone! It does sound like you had an amazing summer, I am sure one that your kids will look back and remember!

  2. So nice that you were able to enjoy the summer! I wish everyone a wonderful, successful, school year!

  3. School already!! They start tomorrow. Coudln't they have started next week Monday:)
