Ahhhh, we’re home.  It’s bittersweet.  I sure do miss waking up and having coffee on the patio while looking out at the ocean.  My only worries were making sure the kids had enough sunscreen slathered on them each day.  While we were gone we had some work done to the house.  The kids bedrooms had to be cleared and the kitchen too.  They still have a lot of work to do 🙁 .  I was reeeeally hoping they would be done.  Our house is turned upside-down.  Owen starts pre-school tomorrow- again, a bittersweet moment.  He’ll be with his buddy Jack.  I’m so glad they will be together.  My first day of school is Tuesday and the big boys start Wednesday.  Elle will go to Kim’s starting Tuesday too.  There will be some BIG changes in the Speelman household this week!  The photo above is from the hotel in Pratville, Alabama.  It was taken on our trip down south.  We drove home straight through yesterday.  The drive went pretty fast, however, Elle slept a total of about 25 minutes and cried at least four hours of the trip.  The big boys didn’t sleep a wink- if you know our family this is very typical.  Well, I have LOTS to do today.  Tomorrow will be the last of a-post-a-day summer.  I’m so proud of myself- I didn’t miss a day.  Of course I’ll still be posting regularly- just not every day.  I still have a TON of photos to edit from the summer.  See you tomorrow 🙂 .
