Just a few short days until summer break gets underway and while in a few weeks I may want to pull my hair out balancing working and the house and time with the kids I have to say I am sooooo ready for it! I am so ready to have a more relaxed schedule, I am so ready to have them home with me during the day, as much as they drive me crazy I miss them like crazy when they are at school. Now in a few weeks you might here me saying I am shipping them off to Grandmas for a few days once they start with the “I’m boreds” but I am really hoping that happens towards the end of summer and we can all enjoy the summer months!
I am ready to explore with them, a new house in a new area for them leaves much that they have not seen and I can not wait to get started seeing it. I am ready for pushing them on the swings in the backyard, having water balloon fights, riding bikes, having them help me make meals, just sitting and talking, enjoying one another. Each year a new summer comes and it means that my kids have finished one more year of school and they are one year old and the time seems to go so quickly.
It feels like only yesterday McKenzie was a baby and she is now 9, where did the time go I ask myself often. The same with Logan who is 7 and Alyssa who is 4. I am not sure I am ready to have a 4th grader, a second grader and a 2nd year preschooler. I am not sure that I am ready to have them keep on growing up as fast as they are which seems like I blink and they are older.
I am taking this summer to enjoy our new home, our new life and the family time that we can have. I am excited that they will be home during the day and I will get more then just weekends and before and after school with them because they have school.
Are you excited for the kids to be out of school? What fun plans do you have?
