End of Summer
As we prepare for school to begin tomorrow, I would just a moment to say goodbye and thank-you to summer.
This summer, Joey learned to ask questions. He learned to take turns. He learned that being Little Bear is a lot of fun, especially if Brother can be Little Bear, too. He learned that he can communicate with his hands as well as his voice. He learned that mountains are big, chickens peck you if you try to pet them, pool parties are really cool, and you can see tigers and elephants at the zoo. He learned that he can float in the water, and Mommy looks silly jumping off a diving board. He learned that otters like to play. He learned to eat ice cream on a cone.
Andy learned to pee in the potty. He learned that sharing toys can be fun, too. He learned that dinosaurs are real, and they are BIG. He learned that marshmallows get sticky when they get hot. He learned that turkeys gobble, and peacocks are soft (but shy). He learned to speak clearly if you want others to understand you. He learned how to get lollipops out of his Momma. He learned fireworks are LOUD.
Thank you, summer, for helping my boys grow. Good bye, summer. We'll see you next year.
