Summer is Almost Here

Carefree Days Ahead

Good morning! Do you hear the birds chirping? The sun in warm and shining brightly! It will be a lovely day! I just finished my last TOS Crew Review for the school-year. We do not begin again for at least a month. It is bittersweet, but I will enjoy a lovely rest during the month of June. What are your plans for the summer? Here is what I want to do:

1. Make plenty of ice-cold lemonade and iced tea.
2. Buy chips and burgers for lots of BBQ's outdoors.
3. Watch the children play basketball in the backyard.
4. Sit on the porch while the children ride bikes down our long driveway.
5. Attempt to teach one of the children how to drive.
6. Eat watermelon!
7. Make fruit salads with lots of strawberries, blueberries and cantaloupe!
8. Have all the older children come home for fun weekend visits.
9. Watch the sun set in the late evening.
10. Sit on the porch when it rains, to cool us all off.
11. Head into town for ice-cream sundaes.
12. Bake lots of cookies and cupcakes to serve outside.
13. Swing on the swing-set.
14. Do housework as fast as possible and then head outside for the day.
15. Find a way to set up a volleyball net.
16. Play horseshoes with my Father.
17. Have long chats with my Mother on her porch (next door to mine).
18. Toast marshmallows.
19. Drink an ice-cold Dr. Pepper.
20. Listen to the children's laughter as it makes a permanent echo in my memory.

Wonderful list... I especially like the last one. I made a bucket list this year for summer. Here it is.

Be blessed!
