Summertime Here We Come.

Where is the time going?  It's hard to believe it's May and today is the last day of school for the girls!!!!  I'm excited to have them home with me because we do enjoy our summers, but it's always a bit of a transition.  Once we get on a new routine and schedule things seem to get better.

It's been pretty chilly here, but it's finally warmer today.  Hopefully the warmer temps stick around!

Everyone asks me if I'm ready for the girls to be home for the summer.  I would be lying if I said no.  Of course, we are all ready for a break from homework.  It's time to focus on 4H and softball and having fun.  BUT, I will miss the days of only having Jo at home.  She gets along pretty well with her older sisters, but there is definitely some knock-down-drag-out moments.  Especially between Mel and Jo...

They definitely have a love/hate relationship.  One minute they are getting along great.  The next it's an all out war.

I like to say it's because they are so much alike.  B is usually the mediator who gets along with everyone.  She is very laid back, much like her dad.

It's funny because I thought I would have more time the older the girls get, but really it seems that I have less time and the time goes by much faster.  I was talking to an older lady at the grocery store the other day and told her how we are keeping busy running the girls back and forth to activities and she said, "Oh this is the time of your life.  Enjoy it."  

I often find myself wishing time would slow down.

Someone shared on Facebook the other day and it said something like...instead of wishing for time to slow down, enjoy the moments because when time does slow down the kids will be gone and so will the days that keep your lives lively.

So, rather than wishing for time to slow down, I will try to enjoy these moments more and more...even if I feel like I'm running in a million different directions.

Here's to sweet summertime.  May you make it the best one yet!
