Back To School 2013

SBJ* it's hard to believe that the kids - as of 9:00 this morning - are officially back in school. Harder to believe is the fact that Owen is a kindergartner.

With the notable exception of Beth's broken foot, the summer was awesome. We:

- Had playdates
- Celebrated birthdays
- Held our first sleepovers
- Went on long bike-rides
- Played endless rounds of boardgames
- Traveled to the beach
- Jumped off lifeguard chairs
- Ate way too many snowcones
- Read books
- Swam in races
- Won ribbons and trophies
- Cooked out
- Got tan
- Floated around water park lazy rivers
- Watched movies
- Adopted deer (Bruce and Lilly)
- Played in the creek
- Learned all the words to most Taylor Swift songs and all the dance moves to Gangnam Style

Yes, we had a very good summer. But like all things, the summer must come to and end. And the end, in this case, will be marked by a big yellow bus coming to carry our children back to school.

My daughter, technically high school senior age, started community college last week. Both of my kids are in college. Try fast forwarding in your mind what kind of blog post you'll write the day Owen heads off to college :)
