The final bell will ring in an hour and 20 minutes.

Bring on the lemonade stands, reading in our pajamas past noon, grass stains, and kick ball in the park.  Bring on the swimming until we are shriveled prunes. Popsicles, sand in our toes, our hair and all over the car.  Too many hot dog dinners, going to the movie theatre and being blinded by the sunshine when you walk outside. 

Here’s to letting go… of rules, and shoulds. Here’s to making new rules, like ice cream twice a day if you want it and give mama an extra kiss.

I want to embrace childhood. Mine and theirs.

As a friend shared recently, I want to really get to know my kids this summer. That sounds just as good to me as sun on my face and an ice cold ice tea in my hand…bring it.

    I went to the pool, had hamburgers, saw Soul Surfer and had a blast with the kids all day long. Happy summer days!

  3. Goin’ to vegas, will find my riches in the sun and not in the casino, “Wow” at the Hoover Dam, plant more flowers and host my beloved Anam Cara at my golden garden party.
    Ah, blessed summer….
