We are counting down the days until school is out around here and we can start making some summertime memories.
I appreciate what each season brings. I love the busyness and brisk weather of fall. I love winter and celebrating the holidays with friends and family. I love the newness of spring (and baseball season)! But, I think I love the lazy days of summertime most of all. Although, often our summers end up being pretty busy, too. Last week we had a "family meeting" and brainstormed a list of twenty activities that we plan to do this summer.
I'm going to be honest, my four year old, who is the self proclaimed head of household, came up with most of these. I nixed the camping out idea, though. Mama doesn't sleep outside. I bet there aren't many of you out there that are planning to potty train one child, and get a drivers license for another, this summer. Fun times!
I am going to close today by sharing some of our favorite memories from previous summer memories.
