Halfway into summer and we have taken a surprise road trip, visited MOSI twice, the zoo once, the doctor five times; had 4 pairs of swimmers' ears and two sets of new swim suits; consumed 72 cans of soda, 10 corns and 13 band aids; watched marathons of Peter Pan, Cars, Chicken Run, Meet the Robinsons, The Incredibles, Chicken Little and more; read 15 books, finished three journal projects with active kid participation and spent this whole morning waiting for our new puny Venus Flytrap plant to snap at a tiny elusive fly!
When I think of my summer days now, I also remember my childhood summers spent with my grandma. It almost feels like a past life, so different from my now! So, here's to those lazy country summers the thoughts of which always refreshed and enriched the days I spent in the city.
And before I go back to being lazy, l want to say THANKS for all the sweet things you guys wrote to me and all the good luck wishes you sent my way!!!
