One Last (Summer) Hurrah

My soon to be seven-year-old made a friend.
I've been thinking a lot about the stages of motherhood. Maybe it's because I have one week left with the kids before school starts, maybe, because we're approaching more milestones; a son entering middle school, the "baby" turning seven, another potential job for me.

I could be getting all sentimental because the heat is withdrawing and the cool temps at night remind me that my favorite season is approaching, ahh, Fall, the best time of the year.

I'm all about sitting by a fire outside and enjoying the clamoring of kids who want to eat marshmallows and pudgy pies made with peanut butter and chocolate. Yum.

So we are definitely saying goodbye to summer, goodbye to mom and kid get togethers and hello to another season, the back to school season, the season of growing children, the season of what I hope will be many more  happy moments.

I called us "The Real Housewives of the Midwest!"


  1. I love this "sentimental" post - and I'm with ya with all the autumnal love :) Have a great day!

  2. Haha! Love it "The Real Housewives of the Midwest" :-)

  3. i'm still in denial that the school year has begun (and school started last week). i've decided it to allow summer fun to interrupt our lives until the official first day of fall. i like living in denial when i can. :-) i think it's the having 2 kids in middle school that is causing me to live in denial that summer is really over... that elementary school is really over (for them anyway, i still have a 4th grader left, phew!).


What are your thoughts?
