I think sending my eldest back to Kindergarten this morning after two weeks of fun may have been harder than it was at the beginning of the school year. I'm not sure why other than we made the most of it and did something fun everyday. It was so much fun to just hang out with the boys, and Steve (my husband) when he could. Noah (he's my 5 year old) makes comments all the time like "now we can do this as a family" His favorite times are when the four of us are together. I know it will not always be this way and I want to remember how much he loves just being with us now. For my own benefit, I want to remember:
4 Christmas celebrations with family in as many days
New Years Eve at the Children's museum
Noah singing his first solo (Away in a Manger) in church
Going to the lights at the zoo with cousins
I am feeling very nostalgic this morning. Maybe it's the dreary rain that melted away the snow. As Aaron (my three year old) keeps reminding me this morning "mommy, it's still night" because it is so dark. It's the kind of day that you want to curl up under a blanket and read a book. It looks like today, however, will be filled with Hi-Ho-Cherry-O and Candy Land Bingo. These are memories in the making too.
Have a wonderful Monday!
