This is our last full week of the Summer of 2008. As usual, time has flown by for the kids who are not ready to get back in the classroom. However, the parents think the break has drug on long enough!
The school supplies have been bought, the class rosters are up and now we sit and wait for August 7th to arrive! The anticipation for me might be like the Princess’ for the release of High School Musical 3.
We’ve had a great summer with a few fun trips. But part of the summer fun has not involved leaving our house.
The kids are 26 months apart and I often refer to them as “partners in crime”. I’m not sure how it is in other households with boy/girl siblings, but mine spend an decent amount of time playing nicely together. Now, don’t get me wrong, they have their moments of “he’s touching me” or “she’s messed my things up”. But for the most part they have a lot of fun together.
This summer has been one spend the night party after the next. No, not with other kids. In each other’s room. It looked something like this:
And this morning I found them like this:
I’ve missed a couple of great photo opportunities. Like when the Polly Pockets were allowed to play in the newly built Lego structures. Or the lining up of ALL their stuffed animals across both bunk beds.
I am going to cherish these moments for as long as I can. Because who knows how long this will last. I pray a lifetime!
