Oh summer, why did you come and go so quickly?! I feel like we were just greeting our kids with water balloons at the bus stop on the last day of school. How can tomorrow be the first day of school already? Our summer was no bummer-- We slept in and stayed up late. We went to the pool often--almost every day. Oh, and a few days we ordered pizza for dinner, ate it pool-side & swam at night. Sparklers and fireworks were lit on the 4th of July. The kids listened for the ice cream truck and ran through sprinklers. Most days they were sticky and smelled like a mix of chlorine, sunblock, sweat and maybe some of that flavored stuff you put on snow cones. Ahhh! Love that summer smell. I hope those are the things they remember about summer. Less rules, more fun. I wish dear summer was a wee bit longer. Sigh.
Ready or not here we come 4th and 2nd grade. I hope you enjoy a little peek into our glorious summer days. I am off to pack some lunches and convince the kids to go to bed early.
