The end of summer makes me want to cry

I don't think I've ever felt like this! I am always SO READY to get back to school. But there has never been a summer so fun and so special...a lot of great changes and tons of fantastic memories. The fact that today is the last day of summer break is a bit difficult to accept. BUT I HAVE WONDERFUL NEWS!! I'm looping up with my kids to 3rd grade...yes, those wonderful, awesome 7 and 8 year olds are mine for another year :) That means a whole new curriculum and the first year of SOL tests (eek!) but I get to spend 5 days a week with the coolest kids I know. All of those tears at the end of last year for no reason, lol.

As much as I will miss Audrey, I am so happy she'll get to be with Grandma and Grandpa everyday. She loves them so much and it is truly her second home. And even better? My sister in law is moving here with my sweet niece in October! The girls are going to have so much time together and become the bestest of friends.

Yes, lots of good things coming up this year...Ryan and Mimi's wedding in November, a new niece or nephew in the spring just to name a few. I have a feeling it's going to be another incredible year!

3 months, 3 weeks and 4 days until Winter Break!

That is such great news about work! And I love how you count down to the next break! She is more beautiful everytime I see her.
