# kids # Time for me Thursday

Time for Me Thursday

This summer has flown by. The boys go back to their Dad's house for the school year tomorrow and it makes me one sad mama. We've had such a great summer together. We've gone nowhere, done nothing but we've had so much time together. The boys have learned it can be fun to play outside and that maybe video games aren't a necessity. We've cooked together and done laundry together. We've done pretty much everything together and they've learned how to do so many things and learned because they asked to be taught. I'm going to miss them so dang much. Luckily, the move has made it possible for me to spend time with them during the school year. They'll be here every other weekend and I'm now close enough that I can go to school events. I'm only disappointed that due to the van breaking on us yesterday, I will probably miss the school open house and I very much wanted to go so I could meet their teachers and such. Everyone please pray, knock on wood, whatever you do that the van will get fixed quickly and for a reasonable price. (Edit: The van estimate is $550. I don't know what we're going to do.)

So what am I doing for me today with everything that is going on? I'm going to get me some extra kid loves and hugs and kisses. Ben kept giving me hugs yesterday because he knew how worried i was about the van. Roger offered to sell wedgies to help pay for it. If a kid gave him one, it was $5. If a grown up did, it was $10 (because grownups pull harder). I have two of the best kids in the world and there's nothing I need more today than to spend time with them.

Have a great day all!

omg....i want to cry at how cute your kids are! offering to sell wedgies is pretty awesome!! and hugs ALWAYS help a bad day.

sorry to hear about your van....we had our share of van-crap at the beginning of the year, and it's barely holding on at this point.

prayers and wood-knocking on their way to you!

I hate the way sucky things like van repairs get in the way of important things. You've got some good boys there.
