summer is here...

i'm counting down the days to summer fun
and even more importantly, no more school!
(c'mon say it with me) NO MORE SCHOOL!
it's time for fishing, swimming pools
double dutch, icecream trucks
hopscotch and riding bikes
giggling and having fun
now you tell me
why isn't life
always
like
this
?

it can be. one love.
i do hope you have a wonderful summer
(and to all the dads, Happy Father's Day!)

Oh, I agree, it can be! Why do we reserve all of these wonderful things for just Summer? We should all try to find that feeling everyday, a little less hustle bustle and a little more Summer! Thanks for posting!

One of my goals this summer is to forget about all the stressful stuff for a while and just have fun! Hope your hubby had a great Father's Day!

I often think of those summer days after school was over and also wish they were still with me. They are but only in memory. We all need summer days in which to kick back and play.
