For some reason I'm sad summer is over. We accomplished a lot this summer. I almost got everything on my to do list done. I at least started it. I must say I do feel cheated this summer and maybe that's why I feel sad summer is over. We sent 2 1/2 weeks in MI but, my dad spent most of that time in the hospital. I feel like I didn't really see him. For years I have gone to my dad's for the summer some years were rocky but, it's a pilgrimage my children love and look forward to. I feel like we missed it. I guess their are lessons to be learned for all of this. How much we need to spend time with our family and love them, make memories, I know I have next summer but,I know some time there won't be a next summer. I have tired to live my life as a parent doing and letting my kids do. I know others think we do to much but, I also think if tomorrow one of my children weren't hear I don't want to have regrets.
I'm so thankful for a husband that supports me in the doing and does with us. I'm a doer I live to do things, go on adventures and live life. I can't wait to see the world with my children. I can't wait to pack up in the car and travel with out fighting or schedules. OK back to summer.
Just for a recap things we did this summer:
