I'm not sure that giddiness will continue once homework and papers and exams start piling up.
But for now, I'm giddy.
I wish it was September!
At the same time, I hope the next few months slow down a bit.
I want to enjoy this summer.
My little girl will be in school all day, all week, starting in September.
My little girl is going to a brand new school, starting in September.
This begins her real school life. She's in pre-k now, and she loves it, but it's just a few days a week, for a few hours.
Next year, it's all day, every day.
That's a lot.
It is another reminder of how fast she has grown.
My little girl.
With her big blue eyes, blonde curls, beautiful smile, and her imagination that runs a mile a minute.
Summer will bring us lots of excitement.
Our first time in a t-ball league.
Her first time playing t-ball.
My first time coaching t-ball.
This summer will bring lots of baseball, just like it did every summer of my childhood.
There's something awesome about that.
This summer will bring visits from far away uncles.
That brings tears to my eyes. Oh how I miss those boys.
This summer will bring birthdays and BBQ's and carnivals and parties and swimming and park playdates and late nights playing in our backyard.
I love summer.
I will let my excitement for school go just a little bit, just a little so that I can enjoy my summer.
Life is so amazingly sweet.
