Happy Summer!

So (finally) it feels like summer in Kansas. Finally. A nice, warm sunny Saturday will be bringing me and the kids to the pool, Chris to the golf course. Any big plans this summer? Well, we'd like to (finally) redo the deck, the back door, the bedroom door, the back garden. We'd like to take the kids on vacation, but to where? We haven't figured that part out yet. :)

We WILL get together with friends, enjoy summer evenings while we chat and the kids play. And most of all, we want to celebrate our lives and how great our kids are. 

There will always be "things" to finish, tasks to complete, more things around the house that we want to improve, enhance, etc. But there won't always be time to play, knowing there is no real place we have to be. There won't always be days when my 4 kids want to hang out and play with me & Chris. 

So, I guess the deck, the back door, the bedroom door, the back garden can wait. But not me...we're off to the pool!! '

Happy summer! :)
