Alright, I really feel like my kids are the only kids still in school. Jacob doesn’t get out until tomorrow (thank you 53 inches of snow in February!!), so we are ITCHING to get our summer plans started.
SUMMER!!! Summer means so many different things to different people. Maybe it means travel or cookouts or ice cream or ICE CREAM! Wait, I already said that. But whatever. Ice cream deserves a double shout out. Because I love ice cream.
Besides all that stuff, there are some things that I am really looking forward to this summer:
- NO ALARM CLOCKS – My kids don’t sleep in. Ever. They are up between 7am and 7:30am every day. That’s no good for me. I’m looking forward to them getting up when they want to and letting me sleep in. I have told them to get out of my room enough times that I have them trained to not wake me up until at least 8:30am. They may even feed themselves. A girl can dream!
- REVOLVING DOOR – There is no other time of the year that we can open the door at 9am and the kids our in and out all day long. There’s enough kids and friends of kids on our street that every day is like a block party. Bring on the sun!
- FIRING UP THE GRILL – We don’t do anything fancy on the grill. Mainly chicken and pork is what we fire up. But we do it a lot more often in the summer. It seems like the food tastes better and there is less to clean up. It’s a win-win situation if you ask me!
How about you? What are you looking forward to now that summer is FINALLY here??
