School's Out For Summer!

Though we finished school last Thursday, we spent our entire weekend going 100 MPH for three dance recitals and therefore considered yesterday the first official day of summer.

Here's what I'm looking forward to the most:
  • Waking up without an alarm clock.
  • Getting up at the same time as the sun...and not a minute earlier. (Side note: did you know that in July it gets light outside at 4:30am in Wisconsin?!)
  • Visiting our families in Wisconsin and Illinois.
  • New experiences for Will and Hallie. (Both are going outside of their comfort zones and trying multiple new kinds of lessons and camps this summer.)
  • Swimming, boating, movies, bowling, miniature golf, campfires, the 19th hole, farmers markets, ice cream trucks, live music, cold beer, and date nights.
  • Boredom.
  • Available tables at my coffee shops.
  • Shorter wait times at our favorite restaurants.
  • Available parking spots downtown.
  • Fewer cars on the road.

Things I'm not looking forward to this summer:
  • August.
  • Mosquitoes.
  • And, you know, the heat. Some things never change.

What are you looking forward to - and what could you do without - this summer?
