Time to sit back and have a cup of coffee

Good, real good

I always look forward to the summer because I desperately need a break and I long to spend uninterrupted time with my children.   But the adjustment period at the beginning of the summer is always so tough. 

It always takes us about 2-3 weeks to work out all the kinks and get used to being around each other 24/7 again and throw in a couple vacations and that gets us into July. Now out of nowhere they've called me up and tell me I have to be at school in one week.  What's up with this?  I just got my act together, we are in the best groove and I'm loving this life. 

We have gone to the water park almost each Thursday, to a secluded neat park in the early (for me) morning hours, eaten lunch with dad, played and shopped with our neighbors everyday, had picnics in my classroom, played choo-choo trains, dressed up, read chapter books, played Barbies, tossed footballs, rode bikes, swam and swam and swam some more.  It has been the absolute best summer. 

This summer we have finally potty trained Brent and Caitlyn has her first loose tooth.  Jeff has taken both kids to the deer lease TWICE by himself!  And they will go back again during hunting season!!  This is all big stuff baby!

When I first held my Caitlyn and Brent I fell in love and I just couldn't imagine that each day I would fall in love more and more.  It just keeps getting more and more fun.  WOW!

It is sad to see this summer come to a close but it has been good, real good!


  1. What a sweet report! Love you!

  2. So sweet! You are such a good mom and making awesome memories for Caitlyn and Brent.

  3. The bitter-sweetness of it all is that you don't want them to grow up and leave this stage, yet you look forward to the fun and advantages of older stages. Hard to deal with, to say the least. Good report, Stephanie.

  4. I agree!! Just when I get really good at being a stay-at-home mom, it's over. :(

  5. It has been so fun to hang out with you guys this summer at HF! Praying for a great school year for you and Miss Caitlyn!
