The first week of summer is almost complete, and so far the children are enjoying the heat.
No school or homework, staying up late; oh this is fun…we can stay up past eight!
Summer camp’s fun, and time at the pool; oh why must we ever go back to school?
But before you know it, the whining begins; boredom and antsy and missing their friends.
Adventures and movies and hikes, will they do? Coloring, puzzles, and how about the zoo?
But just blink your eyes and soon you will see, another summer has passed and school it will be.
So I’ll take some whining if I get hugs and kisses, because one day it will be what mom misses.
