Summer. Is. Here.

Know how I can tell??

School's out!

I think I'm more excited than Isaac is! 

I want to make it memorable.

I want to make it fun.

I want to make it productive.

I want to savor, cuddle, teach, enjoy.

I have some big goals for summer.

High expectations.

I'm looking forward to the challenge of making it great.

What I'm most excited about is the camping. We don't have it all mapped out just yet but it's gonna be great. I have so many memories of family camping trips. Huddled around a campfire, the perfect smore's stick in hand, talking late into the night. Who can forget sleeping several to a tent, wrapped in quilts my stepmother (the most amazing woman I know) made for each (5 at that 7) of us. Waking up to a fly buzzing and then landing on any exposed skin it might happen to find, shooing it away in hopes of a few more minutes of sleep. Oh, and the mosquitos?!  It's a long standing joke in our family that they love me. And my brother, Jesse, but mostly me. Seriously, if you want to go camping and you don't want to be eaten alive by the blood sucking critters sit next to me. You won't be touched.  Promise.

Anyway, those memories are the best, most treasured times from my childhood and I can't wait to watch my littles make memories of their own. I've talked it up pretty big, it better be good.  This time around though I'm looking forward to holding a sleeping Selah in my arms by that campfire and watching her big brothers roast marshmallows, staying up late with my guy, talking and gazing at the stars.  Making memories.

What are you most excited about for summer?
