The Start of Summer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday is our first day of summer and you know what? We woke up at the usual time – just like for a school day.  ARG!!!

I was not too happy with that since it is Saturday morning, but I guess old habits take a while to change.  After a year of being on a strict schedule, it will take some time for all of us to get used to a different schedule.

We are looking forward to a relaxing day though.  We will be going to the library this afternoon to sign up for their summer reading program and choosing some new books.

And, this evening, we are going to a cookout at my parent’s house.  So, that too will be nice.

And sometime in the next few days, we will go swimming at the pool.  And hopefully have some time at the lake and at the park as well.

This photo was taken of Ian about 4 years ago at the beach.  He was surprised about something but I don’t remember what it was.  He was ready for summer fun then and he is ready today for the summer to begin.

Today I am thankful for:

  • Spending the morning in our pajamas since we had nothing planned
  • Summer books
  • Ice cream on a hot day
  • Swimming
  • Playing games
  • Staying up later than usual

Summer… and the living is easy.   Hope you have a great summer!
