Caleb wrote this on the playroom chalkboard towards the end of July and it's been up ever since. It speaks a lot of truth. After an exhausting and stressful year due to my career change, we were able to enjoy a "real" summer. We had a full one! All Stars consumed June, then we went cruising w/ Mimi & Popo, Wes and I jetted to Jamaica, the kids got to spend a few days at Uncle Jason's, there was a week of vacation Bible school, and a week at the beach with the Kempers. Not sure we're going to be able to swing such a jam packed schedule next year, but we just might try.
Though we love summer time and all the flexibility it offers, it is time to get back in a routine. Maurer Party of Five needs a little bit of structure back in our lives. Good bye summer.... see ya next year.
