Since it is not normal for it to be super sunny here, when the days are great everything kicks into high gear. There is pressure to be doing, going, exploring, and not wasting a single moment. I am now thrilled for the chance to just chill out on this rainy day. It is also the first day of Summer Vacation to boot - woo-hoo... no racing to get the girls ready.
Oh, and did I mention Audrey recevied an "Always on Time" bookmark from school?? Did you hear that people? I got Audrey to school this year ALWAYS ON TIME!! (I even brought her one day there wasn't school - HA!)
Taking it super slow today.

You are Lucky Enough!
Our kindergartener graduated to 1st grade...
I just love this picture because all the other kids are in there own worlds... the true portrait of 6 year olds!! During the "ceremony" Audrey's teacher read the book "Leo the Late Bloomer" by Robert Kraus and couldn't make it through without crying.
What a great message for parents that book is. Leo's father is frustrated because he is not reading, writing, or doing anything he SHOULD be doing until one day...Leo finally gets it! That is so how our life feels right now. We expect so much of our children wanting them to reach milestones, and be respectful, and unselfish, and well... adults. But they are not.
So I am vowing in this post to stop being impatient with my little "Leo" because even I realize we are Lucky Enough!!P.S. If anyone knows how I can end up with a beach house some time in my life... please advise!

Time must be sacrificed to share together, long drives need to be taken, and trips planned. Because you never know the friendships that will be built, the dreams that will start to transpire, and the character that will come of spending time with family.
Thank you cousins :)
