Yes, summer is here! I’ve been waiting for a long time to say those words. It seems like the year flew by until May hit. Then everything slowed to a snails pace and drug out every agonizing second of the multitude of things we had to squeeze into the month. Thank goodness it’s a long month.

Thursday was the kids last day of school. So far so good on the not being bored. Right now all they are concerned about is sleeping late and vegging out in front of the television. Why? Because they can!

I give it a few more days and then the whining is going to start. “Mom, I’m bored. There’s nothing to do. It’s hot. I’m hungry.” Oh, my I could go on and on. So I’m devising a plan right now to stop this before it starts. At the first sign of fidgeting or drooping lips I’m swooshing them out the door. The following is a list of places we are going to visit. Even if it kills them!

Tennis courts
Walking trails
Biking trails
Any kind of trails
Grocery store – The idea is to have my girls plan a meal, buy all the ingredients and then cook it! (That should be an interesting blog topic all by itself)
Garden center

Here’s to a Great Summer!! :)
