I went out shopping lastnight, which was the first time in about a month that I was without at least one of my children. I have seriously not been alone for I don't know how long. I thought that I would enjoy my time away from children, and I did for about an hour, but then I actually started to miss them! Am I crazy or what?!
I think that I started to feel sad because I saw school supplies at the store. Then suddenly, I was so sad! I am dreading the start of school again! I'm not one of those moms that need a lot of time away from her children. I look forward to a little breather once in a while, but for the most part, I would rather be with my children than anyone else in the world. I can't figure out why either, because when I am with them constantly, they drive me crazy after awhile! But, when I get the chance to get out on my own, I spend a lot of my time thinking of them and wishing that they were with me!
I've decided that I must enjoy noise, fighting and craziness! I'm a glutten for punishment I suppose. Don't ask me why, I can't figure it out myself! I guess, I just really love my boys! I am not very good about sharing them with others either. I'm a little selfish I guess. It's pretty sad when you can't even figure yourself out! Oh well.
Anyway, I'm feeling sad that summer is flying by so fast. Crazy fast! And, I don't like it one bit! I have even considered homeschooling our boys recently, but I know that I wouldn't do a good enough job of it, so off to school I'll have to send them.
Until then, I'm going to enjoy every single moment with them! Well, except the arguing, boredom, disobedience, etc. Actually, I obviously enjoy all of these things as well! I seriously must be nuts!
Here are my boys on a nature walk that we took recently.
I LOVE SUMMER!!!!!
"The day is Yours, the night also is yours; You have prepared the light and the sun. You have set all the borders of the earth; You have made summer and winter." Psalm 74:16-17
