Audrey's Days of Summer

As this cooler weather has been making Iowa even more enjoyable this summer, it is a reminder that summer is passing, fall (and football season!) are approaching and for students and teachers out there, that the time to buckle down is only a week or two away. For Tracey and I the 'end' means that we have to leave Audrey at daycare for 8-10 hours a day.

Typically this thought of the last days of summer cause way more anguish than the actual end of it. In reality it is not an end at all. I really enjoy the school year, even if I'm not looking forward to forgoing the luxury of spending my days with 'Little A'. My guess is that this slipping feeling is engrained into me from grade school years.

Even though Audrey is partly the root cause of this finite feeling, she is helping to change that. We've been able to spend great time together the last couple of days, enough for her to let me know she's numero uno  and teaching me a thing or two.

  • Enjoy the little things... and pretty much everything is a little thing. Passing gas is apparently one of the funniest things in the world. I've forgotten that, until now.  

  • Getting up early with a smile on your face is the best way to greet the day.  Plus it totally warrants a good nap later!

  • Speak and sing as often as you please. 

  • Positive energy is contagious. 

Enjoy the day,

Coach Campbell
