It's still hot...Very hot! But school starts next week. I'm going to miss my boys. This is the first year all 3 of them are going to school. I can't believe this is going to be Austin's last year in high school. It seems like just yesterday he was 5 years old and riding next to me in the car with his feet barely reaching the end of the seat.
Next week begins the 6am wake ups and standing at the bus stop with the other kids....then the 2:45pm waiting by the door for my little men to get off the bus. I get to wave at the driver daily! I'm so thankful they let me stay here with the kids and just wave to let them know I'm here and the kids are safe.
Robert, our next exchange student, is coming Friday!! I'm sure he is going to be worn out by the time he gets here. We are all getting excited to meet him and get to know him. I wish he could go to the school welcome day but it's tomorrow. I think we will take him up to the school on Friday and show him where his classes are. I wonder if he will want to do cross country with Austin. I wonder how he is going to react to the dogs. Poor Corps! It seems like everyone is afraid of him.
Looking back over the summer it was a good one. We had a lot of fun with the exchange students. We have been playing more board game and getting organized. I have really enjoyed watching the backyard bloom this year. Each year is better than the year before! We made some wonderful memories this summer. I look forward to this school year and all it holds.
