(I wrote this post yesterday.)
I plan on taking the Summer 2011 really seriously. Starting today. We all bought bathing suits, ate tons of fresh fruit, got ice cream cones, played in the sprinklers, ran in a field. We walked home at 4pm and crashed in the air conditioning until 7pm. I cooked up pot stickers for dinner, and after that, all the kids went back to bed. Fast forward to fall, and all my kids will be in school full-time and I plan on getting a full-time job. It's my last few months as a stay-at-home mom. I'm going to give it all that I got. I'm hoping that I look back and remember this time as the good ol' days. Coming soon: A list of my summer goals.
I'll end with a picture of Rob and Ella. I took it today to remember one of the best memories Ella has of kindergarden: walking to school with Dad. It probably took them about 15 minutes to get to school everyday. Just enough time to talk and get a donut (his idea) or a piece of fruit (my idea). After he dropped her off, most days I would get a short text or a message from Rob saying how much he loved and admired Ella. This morning was no different. He texted me: Ella was so cute. Really going to miss walking her.
Here's to a great summer! Do you have plans? What's a must do on your list?
