This is Summer.

I'm writing this morning from my deck.  With a steaming cup of coffee.  While the Littles are still sleeping.  The sun is shining.  The birds are singing.  And the breeze is blowing, just a little bit.

It's going to be a great day!
Starting with Bible School this morning.  And ending with Track and Field tonight.  Awww, I love it.  My days will now be filled with taking the kids to their activities, spending time in our gardens and having lots of fun with friends. 

I'm going to try and play a little catch-up from the past couple of weeks when I've been non-existent  in the technology world.   Our Memorial Day weekend was a blast, and I noticed while looking through my pictures that it will require it's own post!

Here's what we were up to this past weekend.  It was a busy one, but oh, it was a good one!

We started out with my end-of-the-year Teacher party.  This is a great group of people, and we have lots of fun when we are together.  We said our good-byes, but all agreed that we will be seeing each other before workshops begin in August.

I love having this group of friends to spend my work days with:

We got up and enjoyed a quiet morning together while the kids were still with Grandpa and Grandma.  It was the first weekend in almost 2 months that we have been at home.  We were finally able to enjoy waking at home and taking care of a few things that needed doing.  A few more vegetables were put into the gardens and we were finally able to get our window boxes ready for some fresh flowers.

Then it was off to pick up the kids and head to a graduation party for my beautiful cousin, Katie.
The kids had all kinds of fun hanging out with cousins, and we enjoyed some nice adult conversation time:

Sunday we got up and went to Church.  The kids did great, and it was first time we haven't had to take potty breaks during mass in a long time!

We finally had time to walk through a newly-opened green house in the country near our home.  I loved it!  They had beautiful flowers,  beautiful vegetables, the prices were great, and the owner was so kind and helpful.  I'm glad we found out about it- we will definitely be repeat customers!

We picked up our annuals to fill our window boxes and outside pots.  We spent the rest of the day in the gardens until it was time to head over to our neighbors to grill up some yummy steaks!

 And, last night we celebrated with some refreshing drinks on the deck to celebrate the official beginning of my summer vacation!!!!
Bring on SUMMER!
