After the Boys (and Girls) of Summer have gone...

....Well, last week was our last full week of Summer Vacation. We didn't get to go anywhere. As most of you know our lives have been in a bit of turmoil with my husband getting ready for deployment. With that being said, I must say, it has been one of the best Summers I can remember. I have had the opportunity to spend loads of quality time with both of my children, and I consider it a blessing. I have really gotten to know them both, and even though at times we have gotten on each other's nerves it has been totally worth it. LOL

I have watched my son blossom and flourish in this new neighborhood with friends and bicycles and skateboards. He has transformed from a boy that was afraid of everything into a boy that is fearless. Today is "Meet the Teacher" day at his school, and they begin school on Wednesday.

Kendra, what can I say. She is a great kid. I will have only one more Summer with her before she is a Senior in high school, and then it is on to college. She is an Awesome student, and I have such high hopes for her in whatever she chooses to do in life. I know she will be a tremendous success!

So, to my kids, Thank You for making me the proudest mom in the world! (and the LUCKIEST)


  1. Sounds like you have a great relationship with your kiddos, Geri. Keep it up! You'll be richly rewarded, years from now. I don't know what my life would have been like, without kids. I don't want to know.

  2. Sounds like a good summer! All to soon, they will be gone, it will be nice to have the memories of the greatest summer ever!
