My World

Today is Lainey’s last day of 1st Grade. She did it! Hooray! To celebrate this special occasion, I’m taking her and Noah to McDonald’s for lunch. And as much as it makes me cringe, I’m going to let them play in the playroom. Lainey has worked hard all year, and she made the transition to a new school look easy. She is so friendly, and kind. I’m super proud of her.

While Lainey has been at school these last few weeks, I’ve been home all day with Noah. It’s been a huge adjustment for both of us. But I think we have figured it out. It’s not perfect, by any means, but we have a lot of fun together. He starts Pre-K in the fall, and I don’t know what I’m going to do during the day without his company.

Since school is out, and Summer break is officially here, Mike and I decided to let the kids go to Odessa for two weeks. My Granny and Grumpy are coming into town today to pick them up, and they won’t be back until June 7th. I’m having a lot of feelings about this. I know that this will be a great, fun time for the kids. I know they will make so many memories. And it will be good for them to see family that they haven’t seen in weeks. But I’m a little sad, too. I’m going to miss them. The house is going to be so quiet, and clean, without them here.

Mike and I are trying to be intentional with our time just the two of us. We are excited about getting in some date nights, and catching up on some shows that we can’t watch with little eyes and ears around. We even have tickets to see Johnnyswim, one of our favorite bands.

Even though I’m sad about the kids leaving, I know it’s only two weeks. The time will fly by, and they’ll be back here before I know it.

When I look into your eyes, I see the world.
All my hopes and dreams for you.
I see castles and mountains.
I see boldness and kindness.
You are so brave.
When I look into your eyes, I see the world.
Only the best things for you.
I see skyscrapers and oceans.
I see dancing and celebrating.
You are full of joy.
When I look into your eyes, you are my world. 
-For Lainey & Noah
