Summer Lovin....



In the words of Danny and Sandy....



"Summer lovin', had me a blast.

Summer lovin' happened so fast"


Truer words were never spoken...


*big dramatic sigh*





Goodbye my darling, Summer.  (Kids start school tomorrow.)


Parting is such sweet bitter sorrow.... (Shakespeare was apparently drunk when he wrote "SWEET sorrow")


I shall miss you lazy summer mornings of sleeping in....


Gone are the days of the sun reflecting off the cool waters of the beach, pool, lake....and glistening drinks. (Yes, I am including the reflection off my silver diet coke cans.)





No more late nights playing outside with the boys...catching fire flies and pop flies...playing kickball at dusk.


No more hopping in the truck, traveling with the boys to a new place.


Hello alarm clocks and rushing around in the morning.


Here we come school traffic and homework.


Then right around the corner comes fall sports....with the hustle and bustle of practices and games.


Hurry up, get a bath, get in bed....


And then we do it all over again the next day....until summer comes.


Liva la Summer! Save me a seat for June...preferably one pool, lake, or ocean side...

At least you've got one grown up kid. Granted, the "grown up" part is totally relative since I still shove oreos in my mouth for breakfast when no one is looking.

Good luck to the boys! I bet they'll be rockin school.

I wish my summers consisted of fun stuff like that. For me, it's just more of the same, "hurry up, go to bed" stuff, with kids crying because it's still light out. I actually enjoy the fall because it gets dark earlier and I don't hear about all the neighbor kids getting to stay up later.

Life changes when school starts.

I missed beach time this summer. Next year I am definitely scheduling some beach time.
