We miss her. There is no one here to reign us in, help us toe the line, create silly games, and set the table at lunchtime. She is our voice of reason, our silly sister, our great helper, our grandiose communicator, and our feeler of all the feels.
And they're off! How cute are they!?
We're holding down the fort with all things baseball, Isaac starting his summer jobs, and the start of swim lessons. It is a break from the regular school year, but we still do math every day and we continue to read fiction and non-fiction because we are hardcore book people. To illustrate the point, our library has a summer reading program and the summer long goal is 8 hours of reading per person. The program runs from June 1-July 31. Isaac is a teen volunteer at the library, so his goal was to sign up for a volunteer shift on June 2 so that he could read the entire 8 hours before his shift and get all of the prizes on the second day of summer. Mission accomplished for Isaac.
Our Sunday was spent with church, baseball pictures and practice, soft toss and nerf gun in the front yard, grilling, dinner on the deck, bedtime stories, and a little NBA finals.
With public schools out in our state, summer is in full effect here. What's your favorite summertime activity? Happy summer!
