What? Is it summer? How and when did that happen?
It just hasn’t registered yet with me since our kids are in school until next Thursday, May 27th due to numerous snow days we had this winter. For some reason, we don’t ever expect it to snow here, don’t build any days into the school calender, and then when it does, all chaos breaks loose.
I work for our school administration here, but instead of having the summer off, I probably do more work in the summer. We upgrade our database and train a bunch of new teachers each summer. I have to schedule vacation time around all of this. AND, taking off the month of August is a no-no in my profession because we’re gearing up the first two weeks for school to start.
I’m going to be honest with you.
I haven’t even considered what I’m doing this summer yet for vacation. I hope to make it to Michigan with the kids and Mr. Wonderful for some time with my folks and my brother and new sis-in-law.
My brother married his high school sweetheart last month and I haven’t seen her since they graduated so I can’t wait! Here’s a tiny little picture of them at Senior Prom together many years ago.
Seriously, remember the southern belle prom dresses? Swoon.
Here’s a few shots of them getting married on a beach in Florida in April of this year.
I am not a plan every day out sightseeing type of gal on vacation. What I’d love to do this summer is rent a lake house somewhere, RELAX, and drag our boat and all our kids for a week and just spend some quality time together. If you’re from Oklahoma, and have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
