One last hurdle to jump before we officially kick off our summer – her last day of elementary school! Helping her navigate through this transition has been using every ounce of my mama being. It accounts for 95% of the quiet around here. Excitement, tears, nervousness, and anticipation have been filling every spare moment. She has all the mixed feels about this huge change. I suspect we are only at the beginning of the mixed feels, but happy to have so much one-on-one time ahead of us to work our way though it.
Summers tend to be busy around here, but in all the best ways… meal plans, summer tomatoes (!!!), canning, lots of picnics, and ideas for easy summer entertaining on the horizon. Oh! And I have a side project brewing that I am almost ready to let out of the bag. Stay tuned…
What a huge moment for your girl! It’s a credit to you as a mama that she can feel the hugeness of this transition. Such awareness!
Thanks, Mary Helen! Now we just have to work on the handling of all the feels. Have all summer thankfully!
