good things must come to an end.

I think we are finally ready to get back to our school routine, and leave behind our Summer of 2013. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I wasn't ready for this yet. I remember spending a lot of time at the end of May thinking about how I wanted our Summer to go, and I even wrote about it. Being the girl with awesome intentions, and poor follow through...I am impressed with everything we accomplished this Summer.

I asked Savannah what we haven't done that she was hoping to still do. When I got the answer of "We did everything!"...it did make me happy! I put my best effort in, and it didn't go unnoticed. We played hard, we created the best of memories, and it was fun.

Savannah's favorite list of things she did...

Girl Scout camp
Seven Peaks
Non-Lemonade Stand
Bridal Veil Falls
Geocaching
Park City weekend
Cupcake Wars play date
Hokulia Shave Ice
and my personal favorite thing she said being with my family!

I would ask my other kids what they liked the most, but they would probably tell you the bubbles we just did 2 seconds ago. 
  
Even if Savannah won't admit it, she is ready to go to school. We have had mostly good days this Summer, but I know she likes getting away from us. Something about an annoying little brother, and a Mom that makes you clean...school sounds better some days.

I am already trying to come up with a bunch of new and different things to do for next year. I am hopeful it will be way more fun, because Sabrina and Devin will be a little older to enjoy it too!

Waving goodbye wildly...thanks for being good to us Summer of 2013.

Might I add, as I'm waving wildly to summer, don't let the door hit you on the way out! (that was to summer, not to you) September is so close I can taste it.

You are such a rockstar mom! For real. Next summer, can you plan my days for me so we can do awesome things?
