We have had one of those weeks where some days seemed long but now it is Friday and I don’t even know where the days have gone to.
Summer is almost over.
How did it happen so quickly?! Where did the summer go?!
I mean I literally cannot believe it is coming to an end. It has been the most fun summer ever. I need about 3 more weeks of pool time.
Next week the girls will be going to “camp” at church during the day. I won’t even know what to do with myself.
And then the next week is Ryder’s first week of PreK and then the next is Rory’s first week of Kindergarten.
MY BABIES ARE GROWING UP AND I CAN’T HANDLE IT RIGHT NOW.
In other news, I need a hobby.
When we last left off at my parents’ house last week I told you all about the fun we had. Well it got even better on Friday because my sister, Tasha, and her boys came in and we got to spend the day with them. It was way too short and I wish I could have seen them longer but I’m glad for the time we did have!
Clayton and his wrestling moves. Ryder giggled the entire time, ha!
We spent last weekend with Andy’s family at the river. The girls had the time of their lives. Rory tubed by herself and Ryder tubed with anyone she could. The best part was spending time with Andy’s sister and her babies! The girls couldn’t get enough of Emma and Zoe!
The ride home was amazing. They slept for a while which never happens. They didn’t want to watch a movie. They never asked for a snack or drink. They never asked for a bathroom break. It was amazing.
Tuesday we went school shopping! We had the most fun. My little cuties were so excited and loved every second of picking out things. Rory found the most perfect folder for herself. She’s a stinker alright.
This is the part of the post where I tell you a creepy kid story.
The other night I was painting something in my living room –
(This is what I was painting. Why they painted it the same as the wall color I will never know.)
After I got done I started up the stairs to turn the girls’ lights off.
As I head up the stairs I put my phone light up the stairs to see and when I looked up with the light I saw it….
A child standing at the top of the stairs staring down.
It was Rory, of course, BUT STILL. I was not prepared for that.
I ended up falling/sliding down 1/4th of the stairs and laying there trying to just breathe.
I mean. THAT CRAP SCARED ME.
I say to Rory, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! YOU SCARED THE LIFE OUT OF ME CHILD!!!!!!!!!” (While holding my heart. Naturally.)
She says, “I can’t find Ryder, Mom. I just can’t find her.”
Me: Rory, she is in her bed.
Rory: *Still standing there all creepily* I just can’t find her, Mom.”
Bless it. She never even woke up.
I want you to know I didn’t sleep that night. I mean, I know it is my child, but there is nothing worse than getting scared out of your mind by a creepy little girl staring down the stairs. IT WAS THE WORST.
This morning I found her like this.
Apparently sleep walking is our next adventure into the no sleep world.
