Kinda Happy Kinda Sad

May 19, 2011

Me: Scott, how do you feel about school almost being out?

Scott: Well, I am kinda happy and I am kinda sad. I am happy because I will get to do lots of fun stuff with you and Nate. I am sad because I will miss my friends.

Me: Me too buddy. I am kinda happy and kinda sad.

It is surreal that tomorrow is his last day of preschool. Forever. I am so excited for summer. I love summer anyway, but this summer feels extra special because in August everything changes. I am kinda happy about the changes and kinda sad. Not to get all Lifetime movieish, but I just want to soak it all in this summer. I don’t want to rush any where. I want to read books all morning, go on adventures in the afternoon, eat dinner as a family, play outside past bedtime and go to bed tired. I feel pretty lucky that those are my main goals for the summer.

I made this list randomly the other day as a things-to-do-when-we-feel-like-we-have-nothing-to-do days. I am on the fence about camping. I could be talked into it….maybe. Same with #4. I KID. I think church has been on my to do list for about 3 yrs. I like to just keep it there constantly taunting me than to actually do something about .

Lastly, this is the most hilarious paragraph to ever be written. I crack up every time I read it to the kids.

    I feel / have felt “kinda happy kinda sad” about a lot of Reese’s milestones. I’m sure I will be a mess when she is ready for school!

    I can totally relate to Lily, the yellow ranger 🙂 I’ve got some mad hip hop moves!

  3. I just wrote the longest comment ever then my internet screwed up. Guess that’s a sign from the blogging gods that my comments was too long? I’ll shorten…
    1. Call if you need a good momma cry. You know I am equally emotional about school year endings because it means they will be a year older.

    2. The Miller’s want in on the Driller’s Game and possibly Oxley Nature Park. We’re gonna tap out on the camping though! Good luck with that! 🙂
