The Last Day of Summer





SIGH!

we made it....to the last day of summer! Tonight, the kids are going over to the neighbor's house for an end of summer party, and tomorrow Vin starts his adventure in football, so this afternoon, I piled the kids in the car and took them iceskating. I must have selective memory about skating, but I just imagined floating over the ice with the kids holding my hands, having an easy time of it. The truth was that Mattie quickly got the hang of it, Vin was less than steady on his feet for the entire hour, but did eventually let go of my hand long enough to clutch to the wall, and Charleigh pretty much dangled from my arms the entire time. I'm a little tired, but it was SO FUN. Especially when Charleigh calls the Zamboni, "The Jumanji."

We miss you tons and tons....Charleigh has been telling us that she will "maybe marry Zachy" lately.

I know he's going to love school, but it's okay to freak out. I cried the whole way back home after dropping Mattie off the first day. It gets easier, but it is definitely a whole new stage of life....

oh and he told his teacher he wants to be called ZACH not Zachy and he informed me he wants to ride the bus.
