Summer Sunshine

As I was looking through pictures of our trip to the farm, I was struck by all of the faces and poses of my Summer.

We have been told so many times that her name is so fitting because she is so full of sunshine.

And, she is.

Yes, she has her two year old moments in a five year old body.

She can drive me crazy with her whining and then melt my heart with her smile.

Because, at the end of the day, she is spunky,

fun-loving,

free-spirited,

loving,

Photobucket

kind,

Photobucket

beautiful,

Photobucket

sweet,

and so good-hearted.

I am still trying to wrap my brain around her starting kindergarten in two months.

I am thinking that I should just cry all of my tears now so that there will be nothing left but happiness and peace when I see her walking into that classroom ready to spread her joy and shine her amazingly beautiful light for all the world to see.

She is my Summer.  She is my Sunshine.  And, I know that, in a couple of months, it will be time for me to share her beautiful, fun-loving spirit with a special teacher and a classroom full of friends.  But, until then, I will just soak up the moments of having her be all mine.

    She is the light that seems to lead the way even tho she is the caboose I am also a little tearful thinking of that first day of school. I’ll hold on to the thought of this is just another giant step in the pathway to her future.

    • I have to think about her spreading her joy and letting her light shine for so many other people. She will still be all mine. I will just have to share her a little bit. With a light as bright as hers, it would be shame to keep it all to myself. Just as it would have been a shame to keep Gabriel’s incredible heart and Ethan’s comedic humor. They all have such special gifts, and I know that they are meant to be shared…just a little. 🙂
