Tomorrow is the last day of school around here. I'm really looking forward to it, even though my days won't slow down until next week. My sister is a teacher, so I'll be keeping her kids while she has teacher in-service. Then it will be time for Drama Queen's stage appearance—her dance rehearsal and recital, that is.
I won't miss having to get up every morning at 6:30am. My biological pre-dispositions set me up to be a night owl, who would love to sleep until 10am, but can only hope for 8am now that I have kids. I'm sure if he could grasp what was coming, Little Man would be looking forward to not having to be dragged out of bed twice a day. Once in the morning to take Sissy to school, and in the afternoon to pick her up.
Besides the trip to Scotland we've talked so much about on the Playground, there are other things I plan to do this summer. I want to learn to grill. Maybe there will be more BBQ's in my future like I had this past Saturday when my Dad came to visit from Florida. My new backyard is ideal for get-togethers.
I want to take the kids to the park, which I rarely do because there isn't one located conveniently nearby. When the days get too hot to spend hours outside, we can go bowling. A newfound activity that Drama Queen really enjoys.
But mostly I want to sit on the deck and watch the kids play while I write. I haven't been able to do that in so long, that it sounds like heaven at the moment.
What are your plans for the summer?
