So this is our first week with no children in the house. I have bitter sweet feelings about this. I am so attached to these sweet kids. I haven't been away from all the kids for this long in quite a while and as nice as it is to spend some time with my sweetheart, the house feels empty and quiet. On the flip side.. I get to spend time with my swettie all the time.. because he has the flu, or something. I think he will try for the third time to go to work in the morning. He is amazing. I don't know how he does it.
School is coming up quickly and we all have started gearing up for the final days of summer. For my birthday we spent the day at Eagle island in the sunshine. It was a magical day. The kids built sandcastles and buried each other in the sand, went swimming like fish in the lake and ate yummy snacks and sandwiches. I love summertime. This is a better life than I could have imagined.
