After today--- three more days of school!
The triple digit temperatures have always made me absolutely dread summer. We plan as many weekends away as possible and I feel like I'm counting down every day. We've been out here for over 9 years... since just after we got married. And for the most part... they haven't gotten easier to bare. UNTIL.... Sophia started kinder last year. I was shocked to find myself thrilled for the end of the year. No more homework or schedule carpools. Just a whole lot of Sophia in her jammies as long as the rest of us. It was wonderful.
After a year of first grade, where she's not home 'till after three (!) I'm even MORE thrilled for summer. The freedom in our schedule and extra time to be creative and/or lazy instead of our daily routine.... I think it'll be a good one. Memorial weekend (above) was just a tiny taste. Three more days!!
