Scared, nervous, excited. That's how I felt at the beginning of the summer. On the one hand, I was pumped to have the girls home full-time after a semester of half-day preschool. As much as preschool helped with my sanity, I missed them fiercely. So, I was feeling excited to have a few months to ourselves. We were going to have morning swims in the kiddie pool, dig for treasure in the sandbox, go on grand adventures in the neighborhood.
But then I remembered I have a job. A full-time, sometimes uber-demanding job. That's when I got nervous. And a little scared. After several months of finding a great balance of work and life, I knew we were about to turn things on their head.
Spoiler alert: We survived! And had a (mostly) great time. There were moments where I thought I was going to drop one of the many balls hanging precariously in the air, but I wouldn't trade it for all of the special memories we made.
Here's a look back at our summer:
We Made A Play-House
We Visited My Sister
We Played On the Porch in PJs and Rain Boots
We Went to the Lake
We Drove Cars, Motorcycles, Airplanes … At The Fair
We Took Our Things To The Zoo
We Met Willie and Weren't Scared
We Practiced Loving Each Other ...
... And Being Silly
