School is out!


Kindergarten's conquered!

This may not be my most prolific writing or blogging season

but as seasons go, 
it is beautiful, bright,

In September, the girls will be off to school all day.
I can burrow away at my manuscripts then.

But today?
Time to soak up the chaos, sandy feet, extra laundry and dirt,
children, changing even as I blink. 

Time to monkey around in trees!

Time to hang onto our loved ones

and kiss them up while we can!

Make sure to come over with Sugar Snack to play with the boys more often, Faith. Your visits are always a blessing to my wife and boys. Oh, and now that school is out....time to start The Hunger Games!

Aw, so sweet! It's crazy how fast they grow. Yes, kiss them while you can! :)

Your pictures are exactly how I feel--from the teacher side. I am so looking forward to researching and finding new materials for my K-5s for next year. It's going to be a great summmer!

Paula, thanks for stopping in! Happy sunshine to you!

Stacy, I'm astounded at how the days fly by! Good luck on your submissions and happy summer!

Brian, you have a deal. I will play with the boys, and read the Suzanne Collins books with great anticipation!

Dawn, thank you! I'd like to attain to your standard - enjoying my own kids when they reach the roller coaster years! (not only enjoying them, but making duct tape clothes with them!)

Niamh, happy summer! I hope it's restful and rejuvenating!

There will be less writing done in my house but more fun too, & more laundry:)
