Summer is quickly coming to a close.
I cannot believe how fast it goes- so much faster now that I am an adult.
We spend our mornings chatting and sharing dreams we had the night before
(most of which are stories from their little imaginations).
We get dressed and make our beds.
Ella has been showing Liam how to tidy up his bed in the mornings.
Liam has been sleeping on a toddler mattress on Ella’s floor for a few weeks now.
He prefers being with her at night.
I don’t mind much. It has worked out beautifully and has given him a sense of comfort.
We eat breakfast and brush our teeth.
The big kids usually plant themselves in our bedroom to watch something on the ipad while I finish preparing the house and myself for the day.
Guinnyth is usually sleeping, so it keeps the house quiet for a few more minutes while she rests.
In a few short weeks, we start school and our mornings will be a bit different.
We will go from our morning routine to our school routine.
Playtime will be saved for after lunch and evenings.
Sporadic morning trips to town, or to play with friends, will have to be more scheduled.
It makes me so happy to have my little crew home with me.
We get to share the little things with each other.
It sweetens my day…
When does summer end for your family?
