I'm going to spend the summer sorting and cataloging all the homework, artwork, handouts, and certificates that my son brought home from school in the past year.

When not doing that, we'll be hiking on nature trails, swimming in the lake, and just being lazy and happy.


My sentiments exactly. Unfortunately my kids seem to be programmed to think that they must be "on the go" constantly. What happened to the days when playing tag, rolling down hills, going to the swimming pool, riding bikes, playing hide and seek, roller skating, and catching fire flies was the cool thing to do. No my kids think that fun consists of Playstation 2, X-Box, DVD's, computers, internet & cable television is what summer is all about. Shame on me! I may declare this weekend a "no electronics weekend". I bet I'll cave before Friday night!


Well, my 5 yr old daughter is now in illinois visiting her father for a month, so half my summer plans are enjoying the quiet. (we live in sw florida). After she returns, i don't know what we are going to do to finish out the summer. There is a playgroup nearby, so might join in on that fun

I so relate. I was just journaling about this topic this morning. It is a grind! Working full time and having two small children. I want to eat popscicles and listen to bugs. Sigh. We are remodeling our house and living in a cramped apartment for the summer. Maybe next year! We'll be spending a lot of time at the in laws pool.


Frirst, your 2nd paragraph had me laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. YOU HIT THAT EMOTION right on the head- I thought *I* as the only one that felt that way! :-)

And the following paragraph-the grind--I am *so* there.... only problem is: my urchin not in school yet. Yikes! I'll get the lazy days of summer eventually!
