As summer camp came to a close, there was a moodiness that fell over every one. This summer has been so fun and, although we are all excited about back to school, we were sad that our summertime fun was coming to an end.
But, what better way to brighten spirits than with bubbles?
If I had to pick the best investment that was made this Summer, it would have to be the baby pools. They have been filled with every thing from mud to water to cornstarch to shaving cream. And now they are filled with bubbles. I made a huge bubble maker for each girl. I did not get a set up shot so I improvised with this lovely instructional illustration. (Don't make fun)
On Monday, I will be going back to work. I am overcome with thankfulness to have a job and to be able to do something that I see as purposeful and worthwhile. I am also grateful that I will be helping my husband by taking some of the financial burden off of him. I am grateful that I have found an amazing preschool for Bug to go to while I am at work. I am grateful that Birdy seems so excited to start Kindergarten and meet new friends. But I can't help but be sad that my days will no longer be filled with my own children's laughter. I can't help but mourn what has been an amazing part of my life being at home to share in my families learning. I can't help but look at the future of this blog which has become such a huge part of my life and wonder what will come of it. I can't help but think of all of you, all of the wonderful readers who's comments have lifted me up again and again and wonder if I will be able to keep this up. If you pray, I would ask that you pray for me and my family. If not them I would ask that you send what good vibes you can. Each of us is entering in to a brand new phase and none of us is sure what to expect.
