Since we have to call tomorrow a school night, tonight was the official last night of summer. Although a big part of our family and our hearts was not here with us, it was still a summer filled with happy times. The older these kids get, the more fun I have with them. As much as I will miss our days of sleeping in, swimming, travel, late night ice cream runs, and just enjoying each other I also enjoy watching them grow, learn, make new friends, and discover a part of themselves that has nothing to do with me. It's so exciting to watch these little people find their own rhythm. I once heard that the way your children act in public when they are not with you are the people they will someday become. I sure hope so, because from what I hear, we have got some pretty great kids.
