It's happened again...
I so clearly remember the joy we felt on this particular morning...the last day of the 2012-2013 school year. Kylie was completing first grade and "the twins" finished their kindergarten year.
I marveled at how grown up they looked and was thrilled to have all my kiddos back under the roof for a few months.
Summer was here, ripe for the picking!
It was spectacular.
But now...as it does every year...summer has evaporated before my eyes, just as we were in full swing of enjoying it. Looking back through pictures taken and seeing our summer bucket list almost completely checked off shows that summer was here. And now, just like that, first and second grade have arrived to take place of the lazy pool days.

So long summer...rest well friend. We look forward to the day we meet again!
For now, we'll make the most of a new school year and look forward to the prize promised at the end ...summer vacation 2014!
We'll enjoy it, we always do...but it too will fly.
And this time next year between Shannon and I, there will be two third graders, two second graders, and TWO kindergardeners!
