80 degrees

It hit 80 very briefly today.

I love summer, I even love getting sweaty!

We don't have central air, we only have window units in our bedrooms. I actually prefer no air, it makes it easier to adjust to the hot outdoors.

That having been said, there have been some 90 degree days that we've spent sitting in one of the bedrooms with the air cranked up, or begged a neighbor to sit in their cool house!

I'm excited to plant our garden in the next couple of weeks, we'll be growing most of our weekly grocery-store produce and hopefully saving a bundle of cash!

Today I pointed out to Benji that the teeny-tiny leaves on our trees will be huge leaves in the blink of an eye and then it will be full-on summer time!

I love the feeling of summer freedom, no deadlines, no one else's schedule but mine. I'm looking forward to carrying that feeling over into the fall since I'll be teaching the boys at home instead of sending them to a classroom.

It's time to think about the hose, the slip-n-slide, flip flops and sun-warmed tomatoes off the vine!

Let summer begin!

We spent the afternoon yesterday in the sprinkler and slip and slide. I love it also!

I think Ava needs a younger sibling as you implied. :) How fun would that be? Hope you have a great weekend.
