There is a love/hate relationship that this California girl has with Tennessee this time of year. It seems to have split personality when it comes to spring and summer. Where there never are enough 70 degree days before that god-awful humidity sets in. Can I make you a deal summer?
There are these twins that came into our world and rocked it. Now it seems they only have four more years in those two full size beds upstairs.
Four little ones in two and half years.
Don’t forget that neighbor lived two and half blocks away.
All of this has happened so fast.
It seemed like yesterday you two were dancing, playing, acting silly, laughing like only a sweet two year old could and now here we are finishing up your last weeks of middle school.
These next four years are going to be filled with so many memories.
New and long-lasting friendships.
Friday Night Football.
Meeting your friends at In-n-Out after the game.
Riding in your Jeep with the top down and heading to the beach with your friends.
There will be times sweet girl where you hang out at the pool with your friends. Tropicana Oil SPF 4 on your skin and Sun-In in your hair just talking about who likes who and have “can you believe it” moments. Wait that was me.
For you sweet boy, as you play football and have all those girls wishing you would catch them and not the football sometimes, just let them know that they have to get permission from your momma.
Each of them a memory for the taking in your own photo album.
Memories that will last a lifetime.
Memories that will be wonderful and special.
Memories that will make time stand still.
That’s what mine does for me.
So, Summer, let’s make a deal?
Can you go a little slower this time and I’ll make you all the strawberry pies you want?
