18 Summers. How Many Do You Have Left?

18 summers

 

It’s the backwards count down that I make myself do every year.

We have to. It’s horrible and also a wonderful reminder.

Our oldest has 3 summers (I started counting the one after the senior year, I’m fooling myself counting that one, I know).

The middle son has 6 more summers.

Our youngest has 7 more summers.

 

the days are long but the years are short

How many summers do your children have left at home?

 
P.S. Has anyone read the book Just 18 Summers? I think I’m adding it to my summer reading list.

This room makeover is creeping along. By the time it’s done, Ty Pennington will have worn out 39 buses (busi?) with his one week makeovers. My kids will be so old they won’t even be able to get their walkers and grandchildren up the stairs to come up to this room. Chevron will be back […]

Guest Room Progress and Living in a Zoo

guest room before

Our guest room is still progressing. Isn’t every room, always? But it’s much cozier now. Remember, it started out like this? Then my sister was coming so I quickly turned it into this? But that chair was driving me crazy. So then I moved this chair in. I also was stealing from Peter to give […]
