Last week of summer.......

I can't believe how quick summer has gone. This is the last week before school starts. Savannah will be a 5th grader. WOW!! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, all 11lbs of her. Now you would never know it, she was one of the smallest girls in her class last year, and is the smallest 10 year old on her team. She has grown 3+ inches this summer alone, and is once again taller than her brother. Dominick is entering 3rd grade, he has grown into such a young man. He has his fathers sensitive side, but is 100% boy. Dirt and all, much to my unhappiness (those of you that know me well, know how I feel about dirt, YUCK!)

They are with their granparents (Crittenden) today, they are gonig to OMSI and then spending the night. It is the first time in a long, long time they have spent the night there, and they both were anxiously waiting my the door at 9am this morning, even though I kept telling them "Not until 9:30, and you know Grandma is always 10 minutes late", so my smartypants sons says" Mom, it's 9:40, where are they......" Soon there after the arrived, and the kids ran off to the car. It is a great thing, having Granparents live so close, and that are willing to spend quality time with our kids. I hope they know how much I appreciate it!

Summers almost over, the kids are heading back to school, the leaves are turning brown already. Where has time gone?

You know, it's just short of 1000 miles for those same grandparents to spend quality time with their other two grandchildren!!! Thank you grandparents for making that trip when you can.
