School's Out!

Whew! What a busy time this has been! Wrapping up the last weeks of school with exams, closing ceremonies, and all the related end-of-school year activities, not to mention playground baseball games and tournaments, has kept me going around in circles! Hopefully, this weekend will be the beginning of a (slightly) slower pace. We kicked off summer with a few fun activities; the kids had cousins over for a pool party and we christened our new barbecue pit; I spent some time working in the garden, reading and relaxing by the pool...hoping to do this A LOT this summer. Took the kids to Barnes and Noble to select their summer reading books for school, and, of course, picked up some new historical romances to add to my growing summer reading list. Hope everyone has some wonderful, relaxing times planned for the coming months.
"We'll talk of sunshine and of song...and summer days, when we were young....sweet childish days, that were as long as twenty days are now." William Wordsworth
