Goodbye Summer…

Where did the summer go?? I can’t believe that school begins again tomorrow. Colin is starting 1st grade and Davis is starting Kindergarten. You wouldn’t think that I’d have such a hard time with this but I really am struggling.

We had an absolutely magical summer. We celebrated two birthdays and Chad and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We shared awesome time with family and friends and spent parts of the summer in a few beautiful places.

I’m increasingly aware of the fact that God gives us only so many days to spend on this earth. It’s up to us how we spend them. I’m always a little nostalgic at the end of summer vacation… I love this time with my family where schedules are a little looser, spontaneity is the norm, and family time trumps everything else. Goodbye summer…

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

  1. I hope you save that picture! It’s perfect!

    • Thanks! I love it… it looks old fashioned even in color.

  2. Hi Angie,
    When they are little like yours it is definitely hard to let go. Once they reach 3rd & 5th grade – you will celebrate the beginning of school 😉 It doesn’t hurt that my children are soooo excited.
    Best,
    Kimberly
