I feel a lot excited. And a little nervous.
I love the freedom of summer - to go where we please, when we please.
To spend long days outside....or in the air conditioning if it's 100 degrees.
To visit the beach.
To swim in the pool.
To go on adventures.
But it also means that almost every single time I go to the grocery store (or Target or ANY kind of errand), I bring 3 children along with me.
Have you ever grocery shopped with 3 kids? (I know, many of you have....)
But in case you're wondering it involves 3 kids talking at once (each louder than the other) and asking "can we buy Lucky Charms/sour patch kids/popsicles/etc?" and running in aisles and hiding behind displays and wanting to help bag groceries and generally making my head spin. :)
I also have 3 kids of different age groups and maturity levels. Different genders. Which means one kid is begging to go to the mall (guess who?) and one kid is hating the mall (guess who?), and one just needs to get home for a nap (and again, guess who?)!
However, we all enjoy the pool, and friends, and Dunkin Donuts, so I think it'll all work out in the end. :)
And luckily, I love them all to death, so even their frustrating points are bearable for me.
So, this past week involved lots of transitions.
First off, Carter finished kindergarten! They had a program and sang some songs for us parents.
A few days later was the actual last day of school. In the morning we took Audrey to the bus stop one last time as a 3rd grader.
(This is probably how they would spell it since they are all so "cool" and all.)
At one point, I was talking and turned around and saw Chloe swinging all by herself. I guess someone gave her a push, and she kept pumping. Yay! Now I don't have to stand there and push her the whole time!
So far today it has been so yucky out that all we've managed to do is visit Target, play computer games, watch a movie, and play legos.....ugh. Sure hope it gets nicer out soon!
