summer stuff

With less than 3 weeks of school left, I am full summer planning mode.

It is amazing how quickly the calendar fills up with fun things to do.

So far we are:

Going home for our annual Memorial Day Extravaganza.
Watching Ellie in her very first recital.

Making plans for a trip to Niagra Falls.
And possibly camping.
And going to our friends island house.
And while we are missing the fair in Indiana this year (she isn't out of school yet!), E and I must still plan a week to go home.

We are taking Ellie to her first concert.
Attending a sibling graduation party.
Bible School.
Swim lessons.
Golf clinics.

We even have a babysitter for our anniversary on the 16th of June.

All of these are fun things.
And I am looking forward to every single one of them.

But the little things beckon too.
And I love the little summer things.

Sleeping in and having lazy breakfasts on the sunny front steps.
Farmer's markets.
Afternoons at the pool.
Flip flop tan lines.
My garden, which is sprouting sprouts!  I'm hopeful.
A promised first lemonade stand.
Open windows with kitties in them.
Afternoon naps on cool sheets.
The smell of sunscreen.
I get a little shiver just thinking about them.
All good things.

So remember how I am job hunting?
I have turned down 2 jobs.
I am enjoying this summer with my girl.
See you in the fall, job search.

I picked up a cantaloupe a few days ago, for 79 cents. Chickie is a cantaloupe fanatic. I should have gotten more than one.... :)

(That was cantaloupe in the photo, right? If not, my comment is totally random....)

Glad you will be enjoying the summer with your girl!
