Summer is here! Yay, I am so happy. I am not ashamed to admit that I love summer vacation. I love spending time with my kids, yes, but what I really love about summer vacation is that most of the time we can take the day at our own pace.
The day seems so much longer in summer. During school we have to be up by 6:00, unless it’s acapella then it’s 5:45. Out the door by 7:15. To work by 8, leave work by 1:45 in order to get to kids by 2:45. Then on the days when all three kids have three different activities after school I can drive in a giant circle for 3 hours. This is not a comedic exaggeration (I so wish it was) one day I had to pick up kids at 4,5, and 6 all from the same school!
We are doing summer school this year, but still it doesn’t seem as frantic.
I also love going to the pool. Actually, I don’t go there to swim (I am a terrible swimmer, as I don’t like to get my face wet). But, I am a water sign, so I love nothing better then sitting next to water. I can read, knit or just stare at the water, while the kids frolic around. After that we go for frozen yogurt. I mean really could the day get any better?
Well, I am off to sit outside and read, which I can do because I don’t have to be somewhere for several hours.
Hope you have a most enjoyable summer.
