As a last hurrah before school started, we took a little road trip to Milwaukee. Since we didn't go on a big summer vacation, it was so nice to be able to get away for a couple of days and see some new things and have fun together. The first stop was the Milwaukee zoo. We had actually been there one other time, but it was years ago, and it happened to be like 110 degrees that day, so we didn't stay very long that time. This time it was awesome!

I can't believe I am posting about another 1st day of school.
Kade and Ky are in 6th grade this year. It is the first year that they aren't in the same class. I think it's been harder on me than it has been for them. The best thing about them being in separate classes is that they aren't already sick of each other when they get home from school. In fact, they are excited to tell each other about their days since they haven't seen much of each other all day.
My three handsome sons. Krew's first day of school was actually several days later, but I wanted to get a good picture of them all together.
This handsome Krew is in kindergarten this year! Kindergarten is all day here (cue sad music), so we miss him a ton while he is gone all day. Even though it's way too long for him, he seems to like it alright and he has cute stories to tell me every day when he gets home.
Okay, I know this is a picture of Krew's first day of kindergarten, but with her brother's backpack on, doesn't Everly look like she could be going off to school??! Not yet, baby girl. Not yet!
I had to hold back the tears as he walked into the building. I really don't like how quickly my little ones are growing up!

By the time we get to the end of August every year, my mood changes every hour between these two extremes: 1-Oh no! Summer is almost over, we have so much we have to do before school starts. I never want summer to end! I'm going to miss you kids all so much when you go back to school, and 2-That's it! I can't take another minute! Can school please start right NOW! I need some peace and quiet, I need my house to stay clean for more than 30 seconds, and I'm tired of doing fun things. This August was no exception. Multiple times a day I switched from one extreme mood to the other. Luckily, (or unluckily) I have little to no say when summer ends and school starts, so we just try to make the most of each day (or not!)
|This is a throwback to last August at the same botanical garden. It is possibly my favorite picture of these two together, and I couldn't help but thinking of it while I was looking at the pictures from this year, so I decided to include it for fun.|
