I've Been MIA, But It's Finally Summer

A recent sunset from my back yard

I've been a little MIA lately. Gosh, where has the last month gone? Yesterday was the last day of school for our kids and frankly, for me too. I subbed all the way through the last day of school. I wasn't expecting to be subbing for the last couple weeks straight, so other things got put to the side...including reading and blogging.

But, summer is here! All 87 days of it! Starting today, no more 6:00 AM phone calls or waking the kids up. It's going to be a little more relaxing around here. I am hoping to enjoy many more of those sunsets from my back yard....maybe with a book and a glass of wine in my hand.

We are joining the boys on their school band trip to Canada this summer. We are going to be visiting some pretty amazing sites and can't wait to experience it all with some really awesome high school kids.

This is also going on this summer. I came home to this hole in my front yard on Thursday and this is just the beginning. We are adding on to our home and even though it will be so awesome when it is done, the mess to get there can be a little stressful. But, we are all excited to see the process while we are home. I just have a lot of work to do to get ready for indoor construction. YIKES! I'll keep you updated throughout the summer.

All of us are looking forward to a summer of enjoying the moments. These summers with our kids are soon going to be memories and like the song goes, "I don't want to miss a thing."

Here's to 87 Days of Summer!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer! The construction looks stressful but I'm sure it will be worth it in the long run.
