Back To Work!

I can't believe it's nearing the end of summer. It seems like only yesterday I was picking Gabe up to spend the entire summer with me. This is the first summer in years that he spent his whole vacation with me. I took time off from my writing and only did just what was necessary so I could enjoy his company. As Gabe grows older and is more involved with activities and friends, I know that he won't be able or want to spend several weeks at a time with Amma so I relish every minute I spend with him.

We spent nine exciting and memorable weeks together. He's a whiz when it comes to the computer and showed me a trick or two. It's amazing how quickly kids pick it up. He brought his WII, but I was lost in the dust when it came to figuring out what I was supposed to do.

We even managed an overnight trip to Philadelphia and Gabe finally got to try a Philly Cheesesteak from Pat's. He was fascinated with the subways. Another exciting event for him was having his picture taken in front of the Liberty Bell and touring many historic sites and museums. For a seven year old, he has a lot of interest in our country and its beginnings. It was an added thrill for me seeing everything fresh through his eyes.

Many days we enjoyed visiting festivals and points of interest around New Jersey and in the evenings fishing or sitting around the campfire and enjoying barbeque. We squeezed in a day to go to the Camden Aquarium to see the shark display, too. Gabe was excited to pet a shark…Amma wasn't, but touched one just to make him happy.

The house is quiet since he returned to Virginia Beach a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe he's in third grade all ready. It seems like only yesterday that I witnessed his entrance into the world. Time has a way of flying by and I only wish there was some way I could slow it down for just a little while.
