(I wont be available to chat through today,
Please come back next week! )
Today after school the Little Nies waltzed through the door with full backpacks.
They had cleaned out desks and lockers.
I feel like being sad for a minute.
I am excited for the summer and easier schedules, but so sad my 
children are growing up so fast.
Claire will be in HIGH SCHOOL next year.
I remember being a freshman like it was yesterday.  
I totally remember what I wore on the first day of school,
who I liked, and exactly how I felt.
This blows me away.
Tonight after dinner, Oliver went to the hill near our house to
 meet up with some girl//friends.
Jane sat on my bed with the binoculars spying on him.
"Mom, should I call him in now?"
"Mom he's been up there for almost an hour, should I call him in?"
"Ok Mom, it's been long enough- don't you think he should come in now".

Jane was totally protective of Ollie and in that moment I felt proud.
 I think my kids actually like each other.
