So can taste it!

Oohhh..Summer is sooooo close, you can almost taste it. 2 more weeks of alarm clocks and lunch boxes and then it is SUMMER BREAK!! I don't know about everyone else, but this Momma is READY!! I am ready for the kiddos to sleep at least ONE hour longer each morning, for no packed lunches, no bothering with homework, no carpool lines...just FUN in the SUN!!!
The last few weeks, we have been so fortunate to have a few more visits from friends and family. The kids LOVE having overnight guests..and Miss Mia has enjoyed having MORE sets of arms to pick her up and hold her!

We have already begun spending lots of time on the boat. Living on the lake means boat rides anytime the weather it's sunny..that's where you will find us for the next several months. Mia has really taken to the boat. At first, she wasn't too sure about it, but now she loves it. She seems VERY interested in the lake(which could be a GOOD or BAD thing..depending on how you look at it). The nights are still too cool to allow the water to warm up for swimming, but we are anxious to see how her first time in the water goes.

The kids are all doing just amazing. Alex and Mia continue to be inseparable. I swear, they have become the best of friends. It is just so sweet to see them interact.

We are STILL working on our sleep issues with Miss Mia. We almost had a nice sleep pattern right before her surgery, but l;eave it to that to go and mess everything up. She usually wakes twice in the middle of the night crying screaming, and I try to only go in to get her only once. TRY, being the operative word. It is just so hard for me to let her lay in there and cry; especially after the last few weeks where I have noticed how attached she has finally become. It is really strange to see the transition. All of a sudden, she is glued to me and does not want me out of her sight. I have waited for this moment, since bringing her home..for her to want ME over anyone else. Well, we are finally there, and it more than warms my heart, but come bedtime, I wish she weren't SO attached. A little distance would do us both some 8 hours distance..ya know??
So for now, we revel in the times when she DOES sleep peacefully and go down without a hitch...
we will get there...eventually....

Alex will wrap up his LAST DAY of 4 year old preschool next week. It will be a bittersweet goodbye, as he started there in the Moms Morning Out room when he was 15 months old. I don't know how I will say goodbye to those amazingly sweet teachers we have been blessed to have over the years...guess I better get Mia ready to start sometime soon!!!

Hope you are all enjoying your Spring and having good weather, wherever you are!!!
