As summer draws to a close and kids head back to school, I’m feeling bittersweet emotions. I’ve spent more time with the boys this summer than probably any summer before and yet somehow, it still doesn’t feel like enough.
I’m sad to see them go.
On the other hand, I’ve spent more time with them this summer than any other summer, AND we’re remodeling our house, which means there are many, MANY things to do and catch up on starting next week. So I’m excited to refocus my time back toward the things that have been on the back burner. I’m looking forward to making some space to create again.
I’m looking forward to space to breathe. . . alone.
But even as those words hit the page, it sends a chill up my spine and a dagger to my heart. I don’t want them to go. This summer has been amazing. Those boys are my life.
