Today is our first day of summer.
I have been waiting for this since the first day of school.
Yesterday I shed a few tears because Emily started the day as a 4th grader and walked out of school a 5th grader.
Time just goes by so fast.
We will start our day today by making a list. Every summer we make a list of everything we want to do… however last summer, our list was a bit shorter.
Last summer we completely remodeled our back yard and front yard which meant no grass for running.
Last summer our neighborhood streets were also getting dug up and re-done which meant no biking, walking or scootering.
Last summer we waited…
We waited for warmer weather that never came.
We waited for sod.
We waited for the pool to finally get done only for it to be too cold to swim.
We waited for the bulldozers to leave.
We waited for the roads to get poured.
It didn’t matter though, we still had a great time.
We were together.
This summer the wait is over and we have 90 days.
To have picnics and swim.
To garden and bike and chalk and swing.
To grill and make smores.
To do everything, or to do nothing…
Just as long as we do it together.
There is going to come a time when Emily will not find having a picnic with “Mommy” so super fun and exciting.
But she does now.
And now is all I have.
Today I feel good because I have 90 days ahead of me with my girls. I have a whole summer of feel good moments to look forward to with my family.
Here’s to a Feel Good Summer!
