I'm so happy that summertime is here. (Is summertime one word or two? If it's two, I apologize. Spell check is not correcting me though, so I can only assume it's right.) School is great and all, but man... spring is a busy time. And so is fall for that matter. I'm happy to significantly shorten the list of places I have to be at a certain time and things I have to do. Okay, I still have a lot to do, but my schedule is more flexible at least!
We're only a week and a half in, but it's been good for the most part. All good except for the fact that some days my kids just like to relentlessly annoy each other just for the sake of being annoying--all the while insisting that they are not doing said thing to annoy the other person. Yeah... except for that, it's been great. So far, we've seen the Lego Movie, been to a couple library events, swam at the neighborhood pool a lot, and done a little geocaching. (Does anyone else geocache?) We've tried not to watch much TV or play a lot of video games, though I confess that tonight I just let the TV stay on after time was up because they're happily watching The Munsters and I need to get a bunch of work done.
The kids and I drew up a summer calendar and have been adding things here and there for the rest of the summer. I think it's going to be fun!
