It’s almost summer. The sun is warm and the air feels right. School ends this Thursday and I’m excited to have the Princess home. in 4 weeks and 2 days, Baby Bee will be born and our wonderful family, begun 10 years ago (well 9 years and 11 months ago) when Big Daddy and I tied the knot will be complete and we’ll be closing the family building chapter and move full into to family raising I’m excited to see what the next ten years will be like, but not too anxious.
Right now the girls are playing outside on the deck. There is talk of bubbles and a shared afternoon snack. They’re playing together nicely and happily, the Princess reading a book and Littlebit skipping around doing her thing. They’re not always like this. I think they’re both in a state of anticipatory bliss as the summer gets ready to unfold in front of them.
The days leading up to the end of school and the beginning of Summer always felt like Christmas Eve. The possibilities of what could happen were endless. When you’re a kid, summer is just magical. Ripe with possibilities and adventures. All of it poised to happen in just four more days.
