Joy In Weaselville

We made it!!!!! We started in late summer. Pranced through the fall. Trudged through the dark cold days of winter. Pushed on head down through the spring and now it's here. Today is the last day of school in Weaselville.

I wanted to celebrate with water balloons and popsicles in the yard. The weather, with an expected high of 65 and rain isn't going to cooperate. I won't that rain on my joy. Today there will be no chores or homework. Today there will be only joy in Weaselville.

I have already thrown away the lunch boxes. After 2 years of daily use and countless trips through the washer, they needed to be put to rest. I hate packing lunches and must admit I really took much pleasure in throwing them away. I am all about simple pleasures.

We will spend the lazy days of summer kicking it old school. Bike riding and playing in the yard will be on the top of the activity list. We will eat our weight in popsicles. Roast hot dogs over the fire pit and hardly use the oven. We will eat grilled everything. We will enjoy the sunshine just as soon as it actually arrives.

There is no summer agenda in Weaselville. We do whatever we feel like on any given day and will just enjoy the fun and relaxation of it all. I think Phineas and Ferb have it exactly right.

Can you believe it finally arrived! We have similar no-plan plans for summer.

BTW, Phineas and Ferb is the best thing since Calvin and Hobbes.

2 more days in NukeLand. Tomorrow is it. I like the water balloon idea-I'm going to buy some today. I love me some Phineas and Ferb. Reminds me of you and Melisa on a shopping trip to that giant supermarket ya'll (that's Texan for "You All") like to go to. ;)

Happy Summer! Our 1st day here is marked by a downpour. Oh well....kids won't mind. Sleeping in today is top on their list!

Hurray for summer! Popsicles and ice cream trucks, bicycles and fresh-cut grass, sprinklers to run through, lemonade stands, kids running in little packs on the streets and the ever-glorious fourth of July.

I hope you and your family enjoy this summer best of all. And write about it too.
