Summer Days!

 We are enjoying the summer over here. Nights are mostly spent at the ball field, which has been hot lately...shssh!! Long nights with catching fire flies and dodging water balloons. If I could bottle this age I would. Being bored comes the best creativity. We have made water slides from boogie boards, tents with strings and tying water balloons with spoons, but this the fun of summer and growing up!
 Learning to boogie board, finding seashells, peeling shoulders and endless ice cream cones.  We are enjoying no schedules and have already counted down the summer.....bummer! We have visited some family and have relaxed.  Gardening is a bit challenging, but we are still trying.  We love flowers and it so fun when they actually come back the following year. Can you tell I don't have a green thumb.  This year I have introduced succulents into our space and I love them. Being silly, trying to stay up really really late (this is big when your six), being able to eat two smores because mom says it is ok just this one time :) Summer is about being free, laughing, and having fun.  I know this will not be the case much longer, our almost teenager will not want to be around his boring parents....sniff sniff, but today I am enjoying the summer, family and grateful to see these experiences.   

Tomorrow is not here yet, so I hope your enjoying your summer days and nights. Eating smores and laughter.  It goes by so quickly, but today I think I will be indulging in a scoop of ice cream. How about you? Smiles, Jackie
