The house smells of bacon. There are crumpled papers everywhere that have come home in backpacks as my three have been cleaning out classrooms, desks and lockers yesterday. We have teacher’s gifts ready to deliver and camp schedules are in place. Like it our not here comes summer break! This morning I find myself feeling relief that the school year is done after today. I feel great excitement about time with my kiddos. I just want them home and I want them to just be, sleeping in, taking in book after book, running around outside with their friends and exploring new opportunities through a few camps we have scheduled. Thier school is amazing but having them home this summer will feel like a gift. Here are the three little (actually they are not so little) loves I am referring to: They make my heart soar and they have helped me to realize that every day is nothing short of a gift from God.
It is the last day of school and my last morning of quiet for a while. Dad made a big last day of school breakfast and we will celebrate tonight of course after C’s baseball game. Today we have all the end of the year parties and I am headed into the classroom to give the 2nd graders a big send off. We will watch the 4th graders run from the building with a giant eagerness to attend a new school next year for fifth grade. Wow what a day! My Kindergartener will become a grader and my middle guy will be the oldest holding down the fort at the elementary school. It’s a BIG DAY!
So now we say bring on the phone call and let’s get our court date and get busy making plans to make our way to the daughter of our hearts.
We love you baby girl and we will be there soon!
