Hey, hey, hey... I know June 21 is still far off, but as I watch the thermometer hit 90, I can, without a doubt, state it is SUMMER in the OH.
Our pool is open, the sunblock is purchased, and school is OUT.
Summer? BRING IT.
Like last summer, Bean has made a to-do list for the weeks ahead. We are pretty excited about it. We had a great time last year, and completed the list, less one (we never did get ALL of the River Song Doctor Who episodes watched in order of her timeline).
A few of the things on this year's list are: Watch a Thunderstorm from the porch, lay in the yard and look at stars, play more board games, try a new restaurant, see The Fault in Our Stars movie, go thrift shopping, go to Coldstone, Harry Potter marathon,The Hobbits and The Lord of the Rings marathon, drive and see where it leads, and much more.
I feel pretty fortunate that my 17 year old son wants to spend that much time with me, so, I'm planning to soak it all in! This upcoming year will be his last year of High School! Sad momma bear.
I guess drown my sorrows in this lemonade.
Simple and beautiful. This starts with a powdered mix and ends with yum.
Whatever your plans this summer, I hope you take a moment, put your feet up with a cool glass of lemonade, and soak it all in.
