I've been trying to sort through and edit over 800 beach pictures. After deleting the blurry ones and the ones that were covered with a haze because of the condensation on my lens, and throwing out some irrelevant ones, I'm down to almost 375 or something. And I don't think the number is going to get any smaller. I just can't bring myself to delete pictures of Morgan Kate, no matter how similar the photos may be. Just. Can't. Do. It. I've also been attempting to work on a beach post, but have been quite distracted thinking about Morgan Kate's upcoming birthday and school starting back. Today marks exactly two weeks and three days before teachers report back. I think I may die. I don't even want to think about it. When I did devote a little of my thinking power to it earlier today, I ended up in tears. Literally. Travis walked through the door this afternoon and I sobbed in his arms. It was pitiful. Where has this summer gone? I am not ready for it to be over. Instead of catching up on laundry or blogging or even showering today, I just played with Morgan Kate. We had a tea party, we pretended we were at a store buying things, we watched cartoons and we just lounged in our PJs all day long. It was heaven. I think we may do all of those things every day for the next two weeks and three days. Seriously. 

I know I just need to suck it up and be a big girl. For goodness sake, most people in the real world would love to have just two weeks off, much less an entire summer. I should be thankful and just move on. But it's hard. I love, love, love being with my girl and it's so hard to think about leaving her to go back to work. It's funny because I am actually kind of, sort of, in a little bit kind of way, looking forward to this school year. I'm hoping to have the same students for a majority of the day (last year I had four different sets) and so I'm looking forward to getting to know them and building our little community. I'm also kind of, sort of, in a little bit kind of way, looking forward to teaching Language Arts and Math and Social Studies this year (last year I only taught Math and Social Studies). I definitely have things to look forward to and so does Morgan Kate. She will be reunited with Roddey and all of her "fins". In the last few days she has talked so much about all of them and she has told me numerous times that she misses Roddey and her "fins". And our big girl will be starting preschool. Wowzers. I think I might have just started the sobbing thing again. On that note, I'll leave you with a little sneak peek of the beach.

What am I going to do with this little girl? Almost three going on thirteen...
