Summah, summah, summah time!

Today is the last day of school.  Last year I was dreading it.  Like dreading it.  In fact I remember my fb status update on this day said, "76 days 'til the first day of school."  Drew and William fought so terribly with each other at this time last year and with Lauren only being a year old I just didn't want them home all day with me.  Terrible?  Maybe.  Honest, yes.  This year it's not quite so... intense.  They still fight but William has manned up a bit and the fighting is more on an even level so it's not just Drew being a pest and William crying.  Now it goes both ways and I feel more comfortable in saying, "Figure it out, don't come to me" or "I don't want to hear it" or "Keep it up and I'm going to make you hug each other" or something like that usually ends it all or at least makes them take it in the other room.  And now that Lauren is 2+ she's capable of doing more and we aren't so tied down with those crazy two 3 hour naps a day thing.  

Anyway, in true Peters tradition, I took a picture of the kids in front of the tree on the last day of school and a picture of me with the kids.  We're also meeting a bunch of school friends for lunch to celebrate the beginning! of! summer! 

How do you feel about summer?  Is it dread?  Excitement?  A little of both, like me?  

First day of school in August

Last day of school in May

Yes, Chris has good dental with the fire department.  Yes, Drew is wearing a stripper glitter shirt.  And yes, William loves his mama.  Oh, and yes.  I'm absolutely overflowing with pride and love over them all.

Don't worry, friends.  You'll hear all about our summer.  The good, the bad, and the ugly.  I hope to hear about your summer, too!


  1. I am a big fan of Lauren's gap-toothed, squinty-faced gremlin smiles!

  2. Your last year is totally describing my year this year. I make them hug too until they start laughing...or hold hands until there's no more pouting/crying/etc. I'm actually going to add forehead to forehead if the other 2 don't work. Thanks for always making me laugh with your descriptions, too :).

  3. I am dreading because of the fighting for sure! But like Lauren, Luke is able to do more. We can even skip nap and get by...though I still don't like to and it cannot be done two days in a row! Ryan is doing two mini camps at his old preschool, and a soccer camp. We will also have swimming...I'm hoping its enough to keep us busy.
