Now I am sure as post this I will think of 10 more things that I will miss, but you get the gist of what I'm saying. And I know that each one of you identify with something on this list.
I realized very soon that this would be the last summer I would spend "alone." Next summer I will have Maddie with me to entertain/ keep me very busy.
I have enjoyed you so much Summer Break!!
