Summer is here!!! Can you hear the excitement in my voice? For me this means I get to sleep in an extra 10 to 15 minutes every morning because I don't have to get up and make the girls lunches. It means trips to the local water park (we bought season passes for the first time this year). Picnics, watermelon, grilling out, hearing the girls giggle as they run through the sprinkler.
Sure, it also means summer thunderstorms, mosquitoes, sunburns (yes, I've already gotten my first of the season), hurricanes and heat advisories (which we have today). But, it's all worth it. This time of year is more laid back. No homework to worry about when we get home, instead I get to spend the time with my family.
What are you looking forward to most this summer? Any traditions you have? Do you plant a garden? Visit the beach?
P.S. The girls and I picked up their report cards this morning. I'm happy to report that both of them made the A honor roll for the entire year. I'm so proud of them!
