In May on the last day of school we took trip to Dallas to visit Nana and Papa, and were surprised with a stay at the Great Wolfe Lodge, which the girls LOVED and still hear about two months later. I have to say I'm not a water person, I have a fear i try to hide from the girls, I worry about accidents in the water a lot. But they did great are have been since then in swimming lessons and have just recently graduated to the next level! It was a relaxing but still active fun family get away! We recently went to MN to participate in a Warrior Dash with family and again, great time! Im blessed to have great little travelers, they do great on short, or long road trips, and obviously flying. But Princess Sophia tells us she prefers flying. I only within the last couple years have become a fan of road trips vs flying, and that may be because I can over pack and it doesn't matter because its all thrown in a car vs checked luggage! I love the memory making during the travels. I also never traveled a lot as a youth, most traveling came with dating/marrying Rusty, mainly because his family was every where and I was mostly based in the best city KC! When I was 18 I wanted to move as soon as possuble, and travel , but that never happened, so taking trips is what I love! I like being able to take the girls to see other places besides KC. We are most excited for December 18'...Disney World!
There is an excitement going back to school, new classes, teachers, learning and much more. I know I have to let them go, but at least I have our summers. I will never be the mom counting down the days until the kids go back to school. I seem to have become that constant emotional sobbing mother at the start of each new school year, I guess I will just accept that role (far from the woman I was prior to kiddos) I just see it as another chapter closing but need to focus on the opening of a new chapter!
|I love them most and always!|
