It is the simple things that I think about as summer winds down. I will miss the sound of my daughters laughter and music as they get ready in their rooms upstairs. That noise of sisters enjoying time together. I will miss the nights we all stayed in to watch a movie or that impromptu trip for ice cream. Sure my house will be less loud and my refrigerator will be less empty, but I wouldn't trade the chaos for anything in the world. There is something so comforting about having your family all under your roof. I know they are happy when they are out in the world, doing their thing, but having them walk in the door at the end of the day, smile at me and say " hi mom", is what I will miss the most.
