Summer Has Begun! (It's Friday: It's a Good Thing Edition)
I love summer. I love not having to hound the kids to finish homework. I love not having to wake up at six and fix three lunches before I can even think about breakfasts. I love drinking coffee because I love it and not because I need it. I love no after school activities. I love traveling to far away places. I love the fresh, crisp feeling of our new passports, and the prospect of breaking them in. I love sprawling on the living room floor with three kids and a new book, reading. I love trips to the zoo, and to museums when the zoo is too hot.
Two summers ago I finished the book I would call the "book of my heart." Last summer I got a contract for that book.
Summers are good things. Full of possibilities and hope. Friends and family.
Today: it's not quite summer yet. Today is crazy. Today is frantic getting ready for summer. Today is "how am I ever going to get it all done and survive?"
Tomorrow, though... tomorrow it all begins.
What's your favorite thing about summer?
