First Week of Summer

Yesterday, my parents took Dylan to their place from 10:30am-8pm.  What did Jim and I do with all that free time?  Jim planted three more trees and built one of the new dressers we got from Ikea.  I did two loads of laundry, and cleaned the living room, family room, hallway, Dylan's bedroom, Dylan's bathroom, and the master bathroom.  We really know how to let loose, and have a wild and crazy time, don't we?  (Sigh)  It did feel good to get some things done, though, and we were able to go out for dinner, which is always nice.

Every year around this time, the planning begins.  I love summer, and I feel the need to pack as much fun into the 12 weeks of summer as possible.  This first week of summer was a bit of a bust, due to all the rain, and the fact that Dylan has had a cold.  We did manage to play in the water table a bit, got new books at the library, got Dylan a much needed haircut, and went to Target to buy what will probably be the best $3 I will spend this summer.  Three dollars for hours of this...












...equals a good start to summer!

Beautiful bubbles!
-Thanks for the nice compliment on my sink, (believe me, it isn't like that all the time...I cleaned it for company and used Cameo.)

SimplyFeather told me last night you are considering reading Gone with the Wind with us. I am only a few chapters in & I am really getting into it....

oh, man, are those awesome! jaelyn's 2/3 grade class got bubbles on the last day of school and they absolutely loved them. i was so bummed i didn't have my camera with me, because 20 kids blowing bubbles in one place was the most beautiful sight i've seen! why is it that the magic of bubbles is timeless?

Jonathan is totally bored these days with bubbles. I love them. I'm more fascinated with them than he is. Is this the machine that blows them out fast? I think I'm going to get one. Maybe he'd be interested in them again if he saw hundreds of them blowing out onto the lawn.

I wish the weather would warm up just a bit so it would feel more like summer. . .
