The End OF The School Year

Yesterday was the last day of school.  It was the last day of kindergarten for my little monster B, the last day of preschool for my little monsters M and Z, the last day of the 10th grade for teenage monster M, and this mommy will be embarking on the fall with a first grader, a kindergartner, one still in preschool, and a junior in high school.

To say the end of this year was crazy is an understatement.

And the blogging has suffered as it’s always the thing that gets put on the back burner when life gets busy.

I have a white board that I keep all events that are coming up listed on so that I can physically and easily look at it everyday…several times a day.  For the last 3 months it has had at least 10 events at a time listed on it.  I am happy to say that as of right now I only have a dress rehearsal, a recital, and some packing,  and then we are off on our first big summer family adventure!

I will admit that I will miss my few hours of “me” time in the mornings over the next few months but I won’t miss the constant chaos that comes with 4 kids in three different schools who all participate in extra curricular activities and me being utterly exhausted by the time I crawl into bed at night.

I’m hoping to get some writing done as I think it’s been a couple weeks since I even wrote anything.

And even though the kids were up at the crack of dawn this morning, it was still nice not to have to get up and get rushed out the door.  I actually finished a cup of coffee.

Here’s to summer and all the new memories to be made!
