I’m grateful for the adventures and experiences we’re having this summer. Sure there’s been some chaos along the way. Grouchy days and tantrums and meltdowns…tears. “We NEVER do what I want to do!!” “Stop copying me!”…..”Stop copying me!!” There’s also been a thousand moments to savor in the midst of all that. When I look back on this summer, I want to remember this sandy little butt and how she wore this one bathing suit nonstop because it was her favorite. I want to remember these chubby little legs that are quickly growing long and lean. I want to remember swimming in Lake Michigan and jumping off docks and watching my son reel in his first fish. I want to remember exploring islands and catching grasshoppers. I want to remember the smokey smell of my children as we carry them to bed after the late night bonfire. Yes. We have chaos in our lives, but we also have good, good days to remember. What have been some of your favorite memories from summer?
