The start of summer.

I simply cannot believe there was a time in my life where I blogged multiple times a week.  Becks was small and confined and napped a whole lot.  Now, he's big and active and wears himself out by 7pm (and me!) with no nap.  By the time he's in bed, I want to do mindless activities.  Like nothing.  

One of the best parts of our new home is that it's located in an actual neighborhood.  WITH KIDS!  They're everywhere, so Becks has other little people to occupy him. It also means that the windowpanes on my door are smudged up with kid prints and my doorbell is constantly ringing.  It's kind of nice.  

If summer were a handful of dollar bills, I'd feel like I already spent quite a few on pre-planned trips and meetings and things that need to be done before August rolls around and school is back in full swing.  Just today - less than a week after closing down the building for the year - we had a professional development.  Totally the last thing I wanted to with one whole day of my summer vacation.  And, with this past weekend being a whirlwind of holiday activities, I feel like summer hasn't  even officially begun.  

Maybe tomorrow, when I'm drinking my coffee before my sleepyhead wakes up...and B is at work...and we have absolutely nothing on the agenda...maybe then I'll feel like summer is official.  Maybe when I can prepare a nice, homemade dinner and have it on the table when B comes home...maybe then it will feel like summer.  Or maybe it will be when I'm at the pool, reading an actual paperback, and Becks is splashing away...maybe then it will feel like summer.  

Until then, I'm going to pop a readymade pizza in the oven, open a Summer Shandy and call it a day :)

Sippin' that coffee while the house is still reminds me of summer mornings, too. I'm jealous, I still have four weeks left of school! :(

Happy Summer! Lots of pool days for me and I hope you too!

I seriously cannot get over how grown up Becks is now- I remember when he was Baby B! I hope your summer slows down and you get to enjoy long lazy days reading by the pool :)

Summers are great! Becks is getting so tall--I looked at the picture of him holding the flag--growing up!

Enjoy your time to rest!

It sounds like rest in the evenings to recharge your batteries is mandatory not optional. Congratulations on your new home in a kid friendly neighbourhood. Summer will be here before you can process it. Those lazy days are coming and so is time around the pool as well as time for homemade dinners.
