it’s finally here!!
I cannot convey how happy I am in this moment, and how sad I am at the same time.
I love that I will have my girls all to myself for the next three months!! I love that there is no more homework. I love that the drama and crap that comes home with my girls from school will end (temporarily). I love that we can sleep in, if we want, and stay up late (but not too late). I am happy to see growth.
I am sad to see the good things of this school year come to an end. I am sad knowing that when I send them back at the end of the summer, they will advance a grade, and therefore, be growing.. even though I beg them to stop or at least slow down. in a way, I am sad to see the changes. they are not little girls anymore..
more has changed than just age, height, hair length, and what they have gained knowledge-wise. some teeth have grown in too! for some reason seeing the side-by-side makes me tear-up…
but we are celebrating, you better believe it!!
thank you pinterest for the inspiration!!
there were long hugs, cleaning-out of backpacks, and those things are packed-away, out of sight!!
