*Have your children gone back to school, yet?
My son said it best: "Going back to school is happy and sad at the same time. Sad that summer has ended but happy to start a new year."
Guess what, kid? I feel the same way.
Our neighborhood rocks summertime.
Our kiddos spend their summer in and out of each other's homes, running through sprinklers, cheering each other on at baseball games, hosting lemonade stands, and playing "Ghost in the Graveyard" at night.
My pals and I watch from front yard adirondacks or a sunroom or a front stoop. Whether we have been home all day or are just returning from "work", we usually find time
for happy hour to chat for a bit.
Our dining rooms have been highjacked my small people in swimsuits:
School started last week.
Yes, it was sad to see summer end.
Yes, we miss our little darlings.
Yes, we partied.

That's right. Not a sippy cup in sight and not once did I say "Don't put that up your nose, please."
