Okay, another busy, successful week just ended for the kids: We had Senior Awards Night in the high school gym one evening; Ricky had his senior dinner-dance cruise another evening; Nate brought home all his art projects; and the kids have had various late-starts and strange finals-taking schedules, so we’re coordinating rides around here like a well-run taxi service. There are a few more things left (graduation practice, Nate’s class going on a group field trip, Rene’s “fiesta” at school, 6th grade clap-out, 6th grade promotion, graduation, Grad Night, and a family party for Ricky — all being planned in the midst of Father’s Day and an 8-day roadtrip that I’m planning like a Lewis and Clark explorer), but then we’re done!
This is definitely the busiest spring I’ve ever had as a parent! Good thing it’s not always like this.
But — who knows — I’ll probably look back on it and think it’s shame it’s not always like this. …
Wow, that does sound a little crazy! And yes, you will miss it! With only one child left in the home, I am realizing how crazy my life used to be and just how boring it is now! My husband works the graveyard shift, so I am used to him sleeping different hours and only seeing him for a small window of the day, but when my kids were around, I always had them to run around, cook for, watch tv with, etc. Now, I am getting used to a lot of alone time….yes, I like that too, but I do miss the chaos that used to be my life with kids!
Planning a road trip? That sounds fun, where are you going this time??
