June


Now that it's halfway through the month, I figured I'd better get on the ball with my lists.

Likes
Smells of summer come wafting in.  Barbeque, fresh cut grass, wet pavement after summer rain.  Heaven!

Pool time!  William is finally old enough to take swimming lessons and doesn't need me to hold his hand in the water anymore.  He loves the water.  He's like a fish!  Even Charlotte loves splashing around at the pool.

Red White and Blue!  Another flag waving holiday (Flag Day).  Gearing up for Independence Day.  Stars and stripes are definitely in fashion this month.

Farms start selling their goods.  We have many local farms and they sell their produce right from their property.  You can't fresher than that unless you grow it yourself!  Mmmmm, fresh strawberries!

All of the kids in our neighborhood come out to play and William herds quite well with them.  There's always an impromptu kickball or softball game, or Nerf war, or something going on in the back yard.

Dislikes

As much as I love sunny days, it's difficult to keep an 8 o'clock bed time when the sun is still out.

Still no school.  It's nice to have the free time, but I really miss the schedule of school every day.  

Thunderstorms.  I HATE thunderstorms.

Summer is Finally Here!

We took a short trip down to the Candland's house and spent some time at the pool.  The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold, and plenty of sunshine.  William will be taking swimming lessons this month so I predict many more trips to the pool.
