Look at those happy faces!  Don't they just look like summer?  Except we're not quite there.  Almost, but not quite.  
Today is Lucy's last day and it's not coming a day too soon.  She loves school but is ready for a break.  
The big girls have a half day tomorrow and then HELLO SUMMER!

bike rides
Shakespeare in the park
hammock lounging
the lake
a visit from Uncle Blake
ice cream
the botanical garden
the farmer's market
summer camps
the MUNY
the zoo
Six Flags
swim team
Shaw Nature Reserve
doing whatever we like

Just a little bit of our summer bucket list!

It's good to laugh

The sweetest sound floated through my windows this afternoon.  I followed it to the source...these giggling girls.   I asked them what was so funny and they told me "Disgusting things.  Pee, poop, and underwear".  Nothing like an afternoon in the hammock laughing your head off with your BFF, even if it's about disgusting stuff!

The weekend is here!

Right now, we're listening to B.B. King while what is probably our last pot of soup for many months, simmers on the stove.  
The weekend is here and it's awesome! 
It has been a wonderful week but Friday feels so good!  Kevin's going on a long bike ride tomorrow and has a magnificent meal planned for us tomorrow night.  I'm hoping to get at least one run in, plant the garden and sleep in!  Eleanor has some new wheels she wants to break in, Emma has a list of books that she's hoping to read and Lucy, well, she will find fun around every single corner, plus she's really excited that she gets to stay up to watch The Empire Strikes Back tonight.  

Happy Weekend to you!

Scooby Doo!

It was a terrific weekend that has us excited for summer!  We're ending the weekend cuddled up in bed watching a couple of very old Scooby Doo episodes.   Hoping the week is "like wow"!!
