Aside from blazing hot temperatures, I love Summer. It brings out something in me that the Winter has put to rest. As soon as the sun shines and the temperatures rise, I want to head for the pool and spend time outdoors. Yet another reason I’m happy that we moved to the mid-west from Texas, is that we can spend time outside in Summer without our faces melting off. When we have to go somewhere, I don’t want to cry, and I am okay with doing more than running from the house to the car, and to a destination with air conditioning. Here’s a quick peek at what we’ve been up to:
We joined a pool in the suburbs, but our awesome ‘hood also has this adorable wading pool at the park, bored lifeguard included. These photos were taken on the first day of Summer. The high that day was something like 75 and the boys were freezing, but they HAD to go swimming.
They have also been spending a good amount of time at the library. The public library has a summer reading program with incentives like a family pack of baseball tickets if you conclude the 12 hours of required reading. Noel & Lennon have earned a book bag and silly bands so far, and have 6 hours to go until they get the baseball tickets. I’m proud of my little bookworms. They love filling out their little cards each day after they’ve done their reading. Have I mentioned that Noel taught himself how to read? It’s true: I’m sending him off to Kindergarten already knowing how to read. I’m pretty sure we’ve earned some bragging rights.

About Laura

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." -e.e. cummings
