around this time of year, i get a tad sad that i am leaving home. as much as i love going home to our families...i always miss home.
we will be gone for two months. we will have tons of fun, take many trips, have family dinners around a table with people we don't get to see very often. it will be lovely, making it hard to return home at the end of august. i guess i just hate saying goodbye.
every year around this time, i pack as much as i can into a two week period...trying to fit in playdates, girl's nights out (or in), coffee in the morning with friends who have off for the summer...
it goes on and on, and I LOVE IT! however, i have finally met the point where i need to hole up and sleep for a while...ha. i'm sure that can't happen. i am so excited for this summer and for all the memories we will make. my kids are sooooo excited to get to michigan and see sito and gido, papa and nona, g-pa and g-ma, auntie hi-o, auntie elaina, and baby evie too. i can't wait to see all the lovin' from my sisters and brother to my little babies. they will eat it up...glow, and feel super special. okay, i'm not sure why i said glow. hahaha. i'm so tired. anyway, this is what was on my mind and without proofreading it and checking for errors...i'm posting.
here are a few pics that daddy will enjoy. he is in michigan and has been for about two weeks so we know he will enjoy. we love and miss you jeff.
beckham not into getting his pic taken anymore...what's up with that anyway?
i bribed him with m&m's for this one
(trying out my new lens too)
i love this picture of my little baby boy...he is just the happiest little guy...apart from his new favorite pastime...temper tantrums!
while daddy has been away...we started a new tradition...sparklers in the pool each night before bed!!!
my baby girl graduated pre-k3 last week...
peyton, grace, zach, beckham, and other friends dancing at the end of the year school party. she was having so much fun. i wanted to bottle her happiness up...it was darling.
we are soooo very proud of you. you are such a big girl!!!! you have grown so much in the last year and we love you so much. you make us happy every single day...every single day you make me smile and say a little prayer thanking god that you are our little one.
i love how you care so much about others, how you are learning to help a friend that needs it, and how you are using your words to tell other's how you feel. i love how you are so protective of your little brother and how much he loves you for it.
we know there is so much to look forward to this summer, but most of all it will be watching you and your baby brother loving on each other (most of the time:) ) and having fun with family.
g'night. i'm off to bed!
