Good Morning, afternoon, or evening, whenever you stopped on by.
Today is bittersweet.
We are sending our boy off to summer camp for a week.
He’s a handsome little rascal. Looks like his Dad. He has a heart of gold, talks a mile a minute and I love every single thing about this child.
However, it is about this time, the boys starts getting bored with summer.
Jack went to camp last year for the first time and had such a wonderful experience he asked to go back this year.
Why of course you can. Considering they go back to school here on the 18th of August, this was the perfect week to send him off packing.
This past week Jack and I were productive around the house. He cleaned out all our freezers, refrigerator, helped with the garage and finally cleaned up his room. Don’t worry, all these chores came with a price.
I of course paid him…although come to think of it, he still hasn’t asked for the allowance, so maybe he forgot.
Biggest challenge of the week was his book case. I believe we had every single book from toddler years on.
It was time to clear the book case out and make room for more.
I was actually sad going through the books. I remember so many of them. Bed time stories were big in our home.
Both our boys don’t care for reading much. However, they do like a good story and if I read it to them, they were always delighted.
One of my favorite books ever was The giving tree. I actually saved that book..perhaps even for me to read again.
I thought with school starting, reminiscing of days gone by
I would make a back to school printable. This is great even for a teacher gift, or just to print and put in your child or grandchild’s bedroom on their night stand.
It’s a quote by Dr. Seuss, and those books were also my favorite, and the boys. I could read those over and over to them and they never said Stop.
FREE Dr. Seuss printable
Thanks for stopping over today. If you are not a regular I should would love to have you back again.
If you like Dr. Seuss I also made this free printable back in the Spring.
