well, it happened.
summer is officially over.
i could not believe that we were walking back to school…
and that our summer is finished already!

 

 

while the bigs were gone,
i enjoyed many a thought in my head.
i don’t think i’ve been able to do that
all summer long.

 


it was nice.
it was quiet.
and L and i kept each other company
(he starts in a couple of weeks).

 

 

and you know what?
i really, really enjoyed it.
so picture me {im}perfectly because
i am a much better mom
when my children are not glued to my side
every moment of every day.

i am refreshed,
i am happy to see them
and i am ready to hear every tiny detail
of D’s latest inventions
and i am ready to have K tell me every little thing she saw.
i really don’t know how you homeschooling moms do it.

 

and for some reason,
(i assume i was frantically doing this task)
i chose to write “2nd” on D’s paper and “first on K’s.
go figure.

 

if you feel so inclined,
link up with a photograph
revealing your {im}perfections.

For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10


2796. feeling the tiniest bit ahead
2797. being utterly humbled by some forgotten paperwork
2798. the bigs’ smiles as they entered their classrooms
2799. not feeling frantic
2800. not being in a rush

 

now that the summer is nearly gone,
i am able to reflect on what went down
over the last few months.

 

we spent much of the summer
in a rush.
in a hurry.
scurrying from here to there
and from there to here.

 

so i’ve written a note to myself
for next summer
so that it doesn’t look at all
like the summer we’ve just had.

 

dear future self,
do not schedule many therapies for L next summer.
and even if you think it makes the most sense,
do not, i repeat, do not
schedule anything in the mornings.
especially if they fall earlier
than you typically have to be out of the house
during the school year.
the mornings of nothingness
are absolutely precious and lovely.

 

moments caught
like the photo below
were rare.
far too rare.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
Isaiah 1:18

 

2781. K counting her gifts
2782. PW’s iced coffee
2783. everything being up in the air
2784. resting on God’s promises
2785. God always, always answering our prayers

 

i never really ever mop.
and right as i had mopped the first half
of the kitchen floor
(aka wiped  down with a wet rag)
someone who shall remain nameless
spilled half of the yogurt container
all over the floor.
this is probably why i don’t mop.

i have protected this child’s identity
by not showing you a photo of their head.
