Today was Nicholas’s last day of the school year and we are officially on Summer Break!  I think it’s fair to say that this has to have been the single most anticipated day of the year.  Now, if only the weather would cooperate.

When the kids were younger, it was a tad daunting to be ON 24/7 all Summer. Luckily, that hasn’t been the case in years and having them all to myself is crazy awesome.  No more early mornings, no more packed lunches, no more mom bus to and from two schools…..  Just…. Summer….

We intend to play tourist in our own town, garden, hang out with friends, take a few day trips, that sort of thing.  Mostly we will be lazing about, doing whatever we feel like…. working on our tans, sipping lemonade, eating watermelon, painting our toenails…  You get the drift.

We just have to keep our austerity project in mind.  No new bikinis for Chloe (never fear, she has plenty), no new sandals for me, no…..  honestly, I can’t think of anything Nicholas will be without – or Glenn for that matter.  Unless you count a vacation of course.  Which we won’t be taking this year.  (I self-pacify in the meantime by planning next year’s vacation.  It takes the edge off.)

So, I will touch base with you on Monday.  Take care and enjoy your weekend. Happy Canada Day!!!  s. xo
