Mom day - that's what the kids call it when we spend the whole day together. This specific day we went to see a movie, went to eat at Elmos, played outside, and ate sno cones. I love summer! This kids are getting used to my crying "happy tears". Bella just hugs me and says she knows I love her. ha! I'm just grateful for them and for the immense beauty of being their mom.

I've made a point to have Mommy-daughter or Mommy-son days this summer. I've let the kids decide what they want to do for the day. One of Bella's favorite thing to do is to go to my school with her homework. So one most Mommy-daughter days, we go to my school and Starbucks and Duke Gardens. JT likes to go too!

This summer flew by! I've been able to take off all the summers since we've been here for my PhD program. But, this summer was different since I'm graduating. Halleluyer! Even though it was busier than normal, I think I appreciated this summer more than the others. I didn't take time for granted. When you feel like you have months at home with the kids for the summer, it's easy to let time just go by without any intentionality. However, when I knew I only had a few days a week with them, we soaked it all up! (Mostly...there are still tired days and days with too much Wild Kratts...you know, just being real y'all). Enjoy a few pictures of what we've been doing.
