Bright Birthday

Happy June! I know, where in the heck have I been? Well, I've been busy. I've got 3 kids, ya know. And only 1 more week of school to go. Oh, yeah! And sure, I say this now, but I can't wait to be done. Yeah, I know, I know, after about a week of them being home and 3 "I'm bored"s, I'll be wondering how long it is until they go back to school. Wondering why I was excited for them to be home all day, thinking I'm the entertainment committee. I have this same torn feeling every year. Don't get me wrong - I am glad to have my girls home and to be able to be home myself to spend time with them - most of the time. But there are times when the constant teasing and fighting, whining of boredom, lazing about and just plain ol' abundance of estrogen kinda works on the nerves. Again, poor Shawn. So for now, I'm enjoying the prospect of a great, relaxing summer. I'll be sure to let ya know how that's going by the beginning of July. In the meantime, enjoy this bright & summery card.

It's an adorable card! Cute as can be.
As for being home for the summer with the kids? I can relate, and now wish I could still do it. Of course, now they are 18 and 19...not much fun.
