Summer has begun

Every year I love being a Mom more and more.  I count the days until summer probably more than my boys do.  My favorite days are when they are home with me all day~just can’t help it I love these little men that God has gifted me with.


I was afraid that as they got older they would pull away and close themselves off from me, but this hasn’t been the case.  We have gotten closer and our conversations are so wonderful!!  So far this stage (the pre-teen and teenage years) are the best!


My excitement was uncontainable yesterday, my boys were going to be starting summer break!  I decided to make their favorite meal and prepare a desert.  So we had “Haystacks”  This is basically all the fixings that go into a taco put on top of chips.  My Mom always used Fritos, but I learned by accident that Spicy Doritos are even better.  We ate and had a wonderful family evening that was topped off with Strawberry shortcake.  It was wonderful!


I have so many plans for this summer with my boys.  In a couple of weeks I will only be working 3 days a week (just for the summer) which means that I can take them (just them) on adventures and will be able to enjoy just being a Mom to these amazing men.


**~Congratulation's to my boys who successfully completed 4th and 7th grade~enjoy your rest!  I love you and am so thankful for you and who you are!~**
