This morning Scott will turn off the alarm for the last time this school year. He will turn in his keys, walk out the door, and probably skip his way to the car. It is the last day of school!
hard to believe that another school year is ending. It feels like just
yesterday I was sobbing on the way home from dropping Robby off at
school. Now both of my "boys" will be home, and both are thrilled.
summer will be different than those from the past because I am working
more hours. Both boys are going to have to realize that even though
they are on vacation, I need to work. I'm anticipating some growing
pains as they vie for my attention, but I'm optimistic that we'll
eventually fall into a pattern. Of course, by that time it will probably
I predict I will end up waking up early in
the morning to get my work done. It's simply easier for me to
concentrate when I don't have family distractions. It's amazing how much
I can accomplish in the pre-dawn hours when I have a constant stream of
coffee in my system.
If I finish my work early, I'll be able to spend the rest
of the morning and afternoon with Scott and Robby. I really want this
summer to be memorable. I know that my seasons of Robby enjoying hanging
out with me are numbered. Soon he'll be wanting to swim with his
friends instead of me. It's normal, but it doesn't mean that
it won't make me sad. I plan on making the most of the next few months,
probably more for me than him.
For the next few months, I just want to enjoy being with my boys and having fun. Inevitably time will fly by
and, before I know it, I'll be writing a blog lamenting Robby's return
to school. Hopefully I'll be able to reflect on all the good memories
we've created as well. Happy Summer Vacation!
