I love love love summer. The long days. The sandals. The beach. The heat. Bring it on.
My friend asked me the other day what projects I am working on right now, to which I replied, “None.” My one and only project this summer is to enjoy. It is the first summer in five years that I haven’t been either spending each evening over the porcelain bowl or scheduling around a nursing baby. The idea of freedom and flexibility thrills me.
To kick off our summer theme of “FUN” (the boys are just as thrilled as I am to pack away the winter coats and boots), we spent our family home evening this week compiling our summer to-dos.
Blake actually got really into making the bucket list. He came up with a lot of the suggestions (and pictures). He thinks we can play at 20 different parks, which may not be that much of a stretch considering we have already been to 7. We have a park within walking distance but I love to take the boys to new parks with different play structures.
A big highlight of the summer will be going to Michigan. My good husband was the mastermind behind the whole idea, even though he won’t be able to join us. He is always thinking of ways for me to stay connected to my roots. It has been two years since I’ve been home. None of my extended family have ever seen Nash. I can’t wait to reunite with some of my favorite people on the planet and walk on those sandy beaches. I can almost feel the humidity now.
This summer is going to be good.
