 Savoring these days...

What am I doing to enjoy these last few days before my oldest heads off to kindergarten every day and my middle child makes his way into the world of two day preschool? Well, I'm glad you asked. I'm making them chocolate cake with cream cheese and raspberry filling. (Really really, all for them. Just for them) I'm going on treasure hunts with them out doors. The treasure is still a mystery, but the fun is in the hunt. Always. I'm making "airplane, parachute, rockets" out of boxes, pens, string, stickers, and ribbon. I'm having picnics in the living room, and turning my head away from the crumbs. For now. I'm filling the tub up "super deep" with warm water and bubbles and letting them play in it for as long as they want. I'm cuddling with Jay and K, under our favorite green sleeping bag, while Noe takes his afternoon nap. I'm giggling with them while shushing them and telling them to rest. I'm doing my housework early in the am or late in the pm so I am not obsessing over that instead of loving on these boys I know all of our lives will be in transition so soon. So many changes. But for right now, we are just being us. A mama and her boys.
