Summer is here! My daughter has been out of school for over a week now. There has been her 6th birthday celebration, playing in the water sprinkler, chalk drawing on the sidewalk, blowing of bubbles, cooking out and eating on our outside deck, our first trip to the neighborhood pool, and even a trip to the local zoo.
Thrown into the week and a half of summer play time has been the dress rehearsal and recital for my daughter’s dance studio. Grace was great! (Of course I think so – she is my daughter!) She was so excited when her daddy presented her with a bouquet of colored daisies after the performance. You would have thought she was given two dozen long stem red roses by her reaction. It did not matter what type of flowers they were or how big the bouquet. All that mattered was her daddy gave them to her and she knew he was proud of her. It was a precious moment.
I am excited about the time I will be spending with Grace through the summer. She and I are taking a road trip back home to Texas over the next week. It will be great to spend time with family. We also plan to go to Six Flags this summer. It will be Grace’s first time to the fun theme park. Let’s see, there will also be more trips to the pool, the Saint Louis Zoo, and a trip to the Saint Louis Arch when company comes to visit. Oh, and more chalk drawing and bubbles – of course. We are even planning a family get away to Chicago.
I will definitely spend some time pulling weeds in my flower bed. I LOVE all my colorful flowers!
Yes, summer is here and we are so happy!!!!
With all the business of summer, I have decided to take a break from my weekly recipe carnival Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I am grateful for all the bloggers who link up weekly. But, for now, I will spend my time with my family and less time on my blog. I hope you understand.
Tempt My Tummy Tuesday will be taking a summer vacation.
