Summer Ends

School is starting very soon for my boys. I think Kai starts 9/7 and Noah starts 9/8. Yesterday was Noah's preschool orientation. We spent about 45 minutes in his class room meeting his teachers and checking out all the fun areas. His classroom looks very inviting and relaxed. This is Noah's last year in preschool .... sniff, sniff .... he's growing up too fast!

Today we can find out who Kai's 1st grade teacher will be. I think this afternoon we will walk to the school and take a look at the list. I don't know if Kai knows any of the teachers but just so we can have a name to look forward to we'll check it out.

I don't know where the summer went! If felt short this year. The weather was not very good, but that can be normal for Seattle I know. No big trips but we did visit our families cabin on Camano Island 5 or 6 times for day trips and the boys did swimming lessons all summer long - we actually just signed them up for more! I was thinking to end the summer right today I'd help the boys make a lemonade stand out in our side yard! :) Kai has been asking to do that - it's such a fun kid thing to do!

School will be here soon. Kai will be gone from 8:30am - 3:10 every weekday. I've gotten really used to him being here - he's been super helpful with Emmi! Noah will miss his playmate! I know Kai will LOVE 1st grade and learn so much! He's 7 already, that's a big boy! I've gotten really used to 3 kids 24/7 and I will be sad when Kai and Noah are gone but Emmi and I will fill the hours. Summer ends and school begins, it's the rhythm of our life. I just wish the kids would stay small a bit longer....
