Closing Up Summer

After a very challenging Spring, I can't say enough about this Summer.  You can tell we've been having lots of fun because I haven't been here much.  I try to soak up this time with the kids with no schedules, pi's until noon, and time to do whatever we want.  Each Summer is special, but as my kids grow into little humans with their own personalities and opinions and identities, things just keep getting more fun.  This year, they are ages 6, 8, and 10.  They all swim independently, ride two wheeled bikes on their own, two of them read independently but still like to be read to at night, they help with chores, they take care of their guinea pigs, and while they fight and bicker as much as the next siblings, they seem to enjoy each other and play pretty well together.  This Summer has brought us a new car (the first in a looooooong time), visits to see family in Chicago and the Sierra mountains, the first mom and kids only camping trip, more time in the water than out of it, a couple days away for Mike and I, and lots of sightseeing in our own city.  I am sad to see it go.  Lots of parents are ready for their kids to get back to class, but I really love having these little guys with me all day.  They create chaos and lots of messes and NOISE, but having people pop up and tell you they love you and ask for hugs and kisses 100 times a day is pretty priceless.
