I love Summer Time. Not really the heat so much, but all the time we get to spend together as a family. Growing up, it seems my sister and I had a friend over nearly every day of the summer. If they were not at our house, we were at theirs. We even had a friend that came on family vacations with us. She became a part of our family.
My kids too have friends that they are always with. Each of them have become so much a part of our family, that it seems there is something missing when they are gone. It can get pretty hectic around the house to say the least, but I enjoy every moment of the madness.
I treasure this time with ALL my children…… the “adopted” ones too. Before long, they will not be spending their time with us. My oldest is 15, and I know that my days left with him are numbered before he will be working, and driving, and won’t want to be with mom and dad any longer.
Here are a few more photos of our time together so far this summer. These memories will last a lifetime.
