We've been swimming a few times (not as much as we'd like due to rain) and caught a few movies. The kids have slept in....one day until 1pm and have stayed up late...one night until 2 am. We have bought ice cream, make ice cream, consumed ice cream and maybe even screamed for ice cream--that one was probably me.
We have attended a couple of concerts...free wonderful concerts with positive messages and joyful people. Sleep overs have been hosted and also attended. Fireworks were the source of awe and applause as desserts were consumed by friends that are as much as family. The husband has been making dinner at least three times a week, due of course to his new wonderful grill and we even finally bought a new patio table--which of course we've only used once since it's rained almost daily since we bought it.
All these things are good, wonderful and even needed. But even more needed has been the time. As summer...how we longed for you and are enjoying your stay. Please don't hurry off!
