T minus seven days of summer

The end of summer is feeling awfully bittersweet at my house this least on my part. The munchkin is super excited about heading back to school and making new friends in first grade, and hopefully seeing some old friends from kindergarten. We're stocked up with shiny new school supplies and school clothes adorned with all of his favorite characters. By all accounts, we're ready for the first day next week, but I'm having a tough time coming to terms with him being a first grader already.

The summer has flown by, as usual, and I'm thankful that we made some great memories this summer. We took a spur-of-the-moment mommy-and-kiddo trip to Disney last week that was just a blast. My first trip to Disney was when I was his age, and it's something I (mostly) still remember, so I'm hopeful he'll remember this one for a long time to come. Thanks to some nasty ear infections, we didn't spend as much time swimming this summer as in summers past, but I'm hoping we'll get the all-clear this week from the pediatrician and spend at least a day or two by the pool before school starts up next week.

I hope your summer is treating you well and that you're making loads of memories with friends and family. Have a great Monday!


  1. First grade is so hard on Moms! Good luck!

  2. Looks like a fab summer, hope you get the pool clearance :o)


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)
