Where has summer gone?

I have no idea where summer has gone. It seems to have flown by so quickly. I had plans for summer and needless to say most of them weren't accomplished. I feel a little let down, but I also realize that I have taught summer school, which benefitted some really sweet soon-to-be 2nd graders. I also have almost completed 9 hours of graduate school, which benefits me and my family. With those 9 hours down, I am left with 6 hours this fall. Meaning I will graduate in Decemeber. I CAN'T WAIT to get back the extra hours that grad school has required and use them for something I really enjoy, like my family. So I guess I have been somewhat successful this summer, but I still want to have more time watch him do this:

And watch him do this:

And spend more time relaxing and doing things like this:

But I guess like the card says, it's time to get up and going again. I'm ready for a new year and new kids and all the knowledge they bring.
Here's to a new school year, new games in the win column, and new time spent with my wonderful husband and kiddos.

Everyday is a crazy and wonderful, God-given blessing and I absolutely love every minute of it!
