Come and Gone

Is the summer really almost over?!!!  I mean I know it doesn't officially end until late September, but I mean when all the kids go back to school...and (GULP) my kids start school....  They won't start kindergarten, but they will start a new program called Transitional Kindergarten - 5 days a week for 3 hours (so it might as well be kindergarten).  I know they are excited and ready to go have some fun, and I know I complain about feeling overwhelmed and trapped at home with kids that drive me crazy some days, but I'm not sure if I'm really ready for them to go to school every day of the week either :/  Knowing that this time has come so fast, and will be gone before I know it, makes me want to stop time....I want to take it all in, steal all the hugs and kisses I can, and appreciate everything about where we are.  And when I say where we are, I don't necessarily mean geographically...I mean WHERE we are in terms life/stages/etc (thanks for sharing that article, Ami ;)  Although this day, I was lucky enough to be enjoying both...

We love the beach!!! 
(Especially when we  can escape 110 degree weather and go enjoy 80 degrees by the water :)

Trying to ignore some of the whining...
And enjoy more of these smiles :)  
 We might love the beach, but Timmy didn't love the salt water!

...and Now

No matter what year it is, or how modern life me, 4th of July will always feel old fashion.  It's family and friends; it's a parade in the morning, barbecues and country music (even if Tim insisted on listening to the Hit List this year) throughout the day, and fireworks at night; it's relaxed and simple; and it's one of my favorite holidays!  This year....we had the best day EVER!
