Have I mentioned how much I LOVE summer??? Oh my word...it is the BEST season ever to me! Three of the best things about being a teacher really are June, July, and August! I am almost giddy about it. haha
We had a wonderful trip to Florida. The last day we were there, we rented chairs and really big umbrellas on the beach. It was pretty much heaven. The water felt perfect and those umbrellas kept us nice and cool. It was a beautiful and relaxing day.
But....we had a very loooonnngg trip home. The trip home always seems longer, don't you think? I was so glad to be back and see Steve and Mark and just enjoy being at home.
Yesterday we went to church, then went to lunch with Ashley and John. It was Father's Day so we also went to dinner last night with my parents and Steve's parents to celebrate. We are both very blessed with wonderful fathers. They are both godly men and role models for their children and grandchildren. And I am blessed with such a sweet, hard working, loving, and giving husband. My kids all think he is the BEST dad in the world and I happen to agree! :) Here is a picture of my kids with Steve and both of their grandfathers.
Today was the first day of summer and I loved every minute of it! I am still not used to sleeping late since I get up so early every day during the year. To me, sleeping late means sleeping till about 7:00!
By 9:30 this morning, I had already put in some laundry, cleaned out the fridge, gone grocery shopping, made pasta salad, and gone for a walk! I think the thing I love most is having the whole day to get done whatever I need to do and whatever I want to do! I even got to take a nap this afternoon. Rocky and I slept for about an hour and it was great. He loves sleeping next to me!
Tonight we grilled hamburgers for dinner and had corn on the cob to go with it. I wish corn on the cob was this good all year round. Corn, watermelon, and tomatoes are just so delicious at this time of year! I planted a tomato plant on my deck a while ago and I can't wait for those homegrown tomatoes to start growing soon!
So...my first day of summer was really good. And tomorrow is another day just like this one. I have nothing specific on the agenda and that's the way I like it!
