Summer Vacation and Three Promotions – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 86

Growing and Learning

Today was the last day of school for the boys and it was a really good day.  The boys woke up excited, looking forward to school (I’m thinking it had to do with today being the LAST DAY) and their talent show.

I’m sharing some more reflection on my boys, because this truly has been a year to remember.  I had two in school and one at home.  The last time I had one at home was when Elijah was an only child.  Talk about a different dynamic.  Now, all 3 will be in school this fall, an they are all ready.  This will be a new transition for us all, as I will have a house to myself and all 3 will be together among other children.  I’m not too worried about them, as I know they will all look out for each other.  My hope is that they will always think about the choices they make and be considerate of others.

all 3 Boys!!!

The boys brought home their report cards, and I’m just a very happy Mom.  So much growth over this past school year, and I’m excited to see how it all unfolds next year.  Wow, I’m going to have all 3 boys in school.  One in Kindergarten, one in 1st grade and one in 4th grade.  Where has the time gone?

It really is true that they grow up fast, and we have to cherish every moment with our kids.  Even on the days they drive us crazy, which has been quite often around these parts.  But, as I checked in on them tonight before I sat down to blog, I realized once again how blessed I have been to be chosen to be their mother.

Summer has officially begun and the summer sports are already under way.  Elijah’s been in softball for the past couple weeks and next week starts soccer for all three.  It will certainly be a revolving door in these parts this summer, that’s for sure.  Looking forward to seeing what unfolds and how the upcoming school year will be for us all.


Congrats to all the graduates as they embark on their new journeys and all the kids as they’ve been promoted to their new grades.  A big woo-hoo to all those kids who will be starting their first year of school this fall and here’s to everyone just having a great summer, and enjoying life.
