But alas, we aren't in
So in all honesty, I have a hard time getting through summer. I wake up every day wishing it was October. Maybe even November. I just want to walk outside and feel that crisp air and cool breeze. And in the mean time, when I walk outside, I'm struck in the face with hot wind. It's like a furnace blowing constantly.
This year, to help get me through the summer months, I finally decided to make a summer list. Not to mention, Isaac is now 2 1/2 and he can do so many more fun things than he could last year! It's up on the refrigerator where I will see it every day. We've already gotten started on it, considering it was 110 this past weekend. Boo. And I cannot wait to check more items off our list in the next few weeks.
Some items on the list are strictly for me and/or Ben, like spiking a watermelon, hanging curtains and going to a gun show (although we will take the kids). I wanted to focus on things for the kids and the family but still include "to-do's" without making it a goal/to-do list per-se. I think I accomplished that pretty well.
A few nights ago I took Isaac to McDonald's after dinner for ice cream. Just the 2 of us. Cheap ice cream date with my favorite 2 year old? Check!
