School's Out for Summer

I recently deleted (accidentally) my blog bookmark folder - meaning, links to all blogs that I read on a fairly regular basis were gone. I don't read blogs too much anymore and, apparently, I don't write them too much anymore either. A sentence or 2 on fb or twitter is so much simpler. Blogging is for days when, well, life is simpler. School is out for the high schooler and middle child for summer. The oldest is taking summer classes so he can graduate from college in December. (yikes!) Jessica is home for one week then off to her summer job traveling, leading rec at camps with a team of students from DBU for about 10 weeks. Honestly & selfishly, I'd hoped she would be home for summer. However, I did spend a summer working at a camp and I know it's going to be a great summer for her.

A couple of nights ago all 3 kids were here and Jessica cooked dinner and we just spent time together. The boys teamed up on their dad and tried to throw him in the pool - some things never seem to change. Johnny eventually turned the hot tub on and we just sat around, both in and out of the water, and talked and just were together. It's so amazing how much Johnny and I absolutely cherish those times we have together. It seems like it happens less & less. And, with Josh graduating from college then Jacob graduating from high school next May, it may happen even less and less...

I hope you are making the most of the time you have with your family. The days fly by and the thing you prepare your kids for - you know, growing up and taking care of themselves - happens in a blink of an eye.

Just speaking from experience.

Serving the King,
