We made it to the end of the year, let the summer fun begin. Both Carter and Emery had great years but were ready for the downtime. They won’t get much downtime because they both have a ton of camps to keep them busy. The kids won’t miss school but I will miss my bus stop buddies. Many mornings, I got out of the house and walked with Carter to the bus stop. It gave me an excuse to get some fresh air, walk the dog, and have some coffee with two other dads looking to do the same thing.
While my kids are celebrating the end of their school year, my nephew Braxton is celebrating the end of his high school. He is all grown up and is now off to college. We took a trip back to Davenport to celebrate the occasion with him. It had been a long time since the extended family had gotten together so it was really nice to see everyone and catch up.
