Mrs. Kelly here. Is school really starting in a few days? That means, of course, that summer is ending. I'm conflicted because with summer comes a mixed bag of emotions...things I will miss and won't miss.
Things I WON'T miss from summer:
The aftermath of inadvertently letting go of a balloon or promising to go to the playground and then it rains.
The all-you-can-eat buffet. The food requests start at sunrise and continue on the hour, every hour, all day long.
No schedules. Living life by the seat of our pants. Fun day trips, library outings, impromptu picnics and the subsequent joy they bring.
Releasing energy wherever, whenever.
After I do my happy dance this week (in Target with only ONE child...Gene would be proud) I will be right there with my children counting the days to Thanksgiving break.
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone and for those of you headed back, good luck with the first week of school!
