I get to this point in the summer and even though it is not *quite* over, I miss is desperately. We had an amazing summer. It was packed! Camping, little family getaways, swimming lessons, play dates, and lots of time with my two (not so little) munchkins. I adore summer. 90 degree days and all. And I am already missing it as I prepare to start working again a few days these next couple of weeks until school starts full force.
Somehow this year seems even more special as I can see these boys growing and moving out of "toddler" and "little boy" into the land of boyhood and while I love it, I'm desperately soaking up every snuggle that I can. Crosby is heading into 1st grade in a few weeks and Jack is soon to follow starting Pre-school a week later.
So, we are soaking up all that we can while the sun is still out and we have time to burn. This weekend we went down to the Auburn Days parade - the boys love the fire engines, police motorcycles and marching bands. Sunday after church we spent the day at Grammie and Papa's with the Boston-bound Nelsons. They leave to drive across the country this week and we won't get to see them in person again until Christmas break. Boy are we going to miss them!
