7 years, 8 months.
From last Friday to this past Tuesday, Mommy was in Vancouver; on a business trip in Canada. So after I got off work on Friday, I drove straight to your school and took you and your sister straight to Alabama; a trip that took precisely 2 hours and 18 minutes.
I left on Sunday afternoon, after a much needed nap for the 2nd day in a row.
As for you and your sister, the two of you got to experience a few days of Cousin Summer Camp!
This included making slime, shopping for a new toilet at Lowe’s, and running around in the gym during a family reunion.
It was a great way to bring your summer of 2018 to an end, as you will be starting 2nd grade in a few weeks.
Looking back, it’s been a pretty big summer, actually!
It started off by me finally going back to work after being a stay-at-home dad for 6 months. Then shortly after, our family got to travel through northern California for 2 weeks. And you even got to go to Art Camp.
And along the way, I have seen you and your sister become even closer, as her personality and social skills have development greatly over the course of this summer.
You have been very kind to share your stuffed animals with her. After all, you have the largest stuffed animals compared to any kid I know.
I’d say as far as summers go, you got your boyhood’s worth. And that’s not even mentioning earlier when you and Papa caught a snake!
I understand that it’s summers like these that will greatly form who you are. As your parent, I can feel confident in knowing that my kids didn’t have a boring summer.
If anything, you are probably due a long nice nap yourself, thanks to all the non-stop action this summer!
