It is Friday, and Fridays make me happy. Or, at least they usually make me happy. Next week, I will definitely love Fridays again because we will be headed into our first weekend after our first week of school. Today, I am glad that it is Friday because Sean will be home for the weekend. But, I am sad because it is the last weekday of the summer break. The summer just flew, and the littles are now officially a year older (in school years, that is). I am just soaking it all in, very aware of the fact that these are the wonderful, precious days of their childhood, days that I will always cherish, never forget.
We decided that a mini field day was in order. So, we started with playing with shaving cream, then went to a water balloon fight, and finished with running through the sprinklers. Seeing their joy in the small things makes me smile. I know, I believe, that they will remember these days with a smile. And, Summer confirmed that when we were on our way to Sonic happy hour. She said, “I want to be a mom when I grow up.” I said, “That is great. Why do you want to be a mom?” She responded, “Because I want to have children.” I so hope that I am influencing that decision daily. I hope that she sees that her momma thinks that having children is life’s greatest blessing.
It was a fun day, and we wrapped it up with pizza and movie night, which is always good. I had planned to share a gluten and dairy free pizza dough recipe. But, it is not quite where I want it to be just yet. The taste was wonderful, but the texture of the crust needs a little more work. Maybe next Friday….because next Friday will be a great day, a day to celebrate.
Have a wonderful weekend!
