Summer break.

+ I'm taking a moment to write down some of my thoughts today.
+ Our last day of school was Thursday and now we are in full fledge summer mode.
+ My children are growing up too quickly.
+ Madeline will be a junior this fall, she started drivers ed last week, and I'm planning her upcoming 16th birthday. Oh. My. Goodness.
+ Jocelyn has started summer basketball and will be practicing hard for the next couple of weeks playing in tournaments and going to basketball camp.
+ Ethan still has a bit of work to do for his online schooling before the Friday deadline, and he's also participating in a summer basketball camp this week.
+ Lily just had her last softball game on Saturday and she is the tiniest player on the team [that's her in the #2 uniform.] She will start 4th grade this fall and is so excited to find out who her teacher will be.

I've gone through a roller coaster of emotions these last few months.
I go back and forth on decisions that need to be made.
I'm feeling very much in limbo lately.

But one thing is for certain...
I love these kids.
I love being their mother.
And I've been given the wonderful opportunity to teach them what they need to know.

Reading this article this week,
To remind myself.
