Bring On The Summer

I don't know how it happened but the end of this school year completely snuck up on me. The last thing I remember was Christmas break and now...somehow...there are only five days left of school.

Part of me is relieved that the 7:55 drop off time will be eliminated and we can begin a more leisurely lifestyle. But I'm also having one of those mommy moments. You know, the moments when you wish you could just freeze time and hold onto the season a bit longer.

Ahhh, how time goes by.

Now that school is practically over, I get to start thinking about fun things to do with my kids over the summer. Sure, relaxing by a pool with my laptop sounds like great fun for me but I'm one of those nerdy moms that likes to put on my "teacher" hat and find educational outings and places to explore with my kids. Learning is fun after all. And the secret bonus for me is that some of our adventures breed great story ideas!

So bring on the adventures! Bring on the summer!

Do you have any fun summer plans?

(Happy Birthday, Jen!)


  1. Oh my goodness, do you believe we have something like 5 more weeks!?!

    We are traveling a good deal this summer, vacations, camping, seeing family.

    Then in Sept. I meet you. :D

  2. Five more weeks! That's crazy. Does your school year not begin until late Sept? We love to camp too. Does your family always visit a favorite spot or do you explore new places?

  3. My hubby is a high school teacher, and he'll be off for the summer soon. I look forward to spending more time with him.

    I"m also looking forward to the Romance Writers of America conference next month being held in New York City. I've never been there, and I'm getting excited about my trip.


I'd love to hear your thoughts too!
