holy moly, it is almost summer!

I'm feeling the summer itch. Has it hit your house yet? I have 6 more days of teaching! I'm starting to daydream of our summer bucket list. Do you make one?

I plan on menu planning again. Cooking has been a bit of a survival game once I returned to full-time work in Feb.


Looonnnggg, lazy days at the beach with lovely friends will be a regular event.

Baking, baking, and perhaps a bit more baking.

Home projects, library visits, bowling, museum visiting, Legoland, camping, the OC Fair...oh how my summer wheels are rapidly spinning.

Crafts with my favorite guys will keep them busy during the witching hour. I may throw in a few for this mama in desperate need of expressing some creative juices.

Oh, and lots of sleep. After getting up at 5:30 a.m. for the last several months during my long-term sub position, I'm going to teach my boys to wake up and play without me downstairs with them from the second they wake up. Wish me luck on that one!

What about you? What are you looking forward to the most?

Much love,

P.S. I'd love for you to check out my latest post on Beautifully Rooted if you have an extra moment. Happy Thursday!

hi friend! i know.. i've been mia for a while. it looks like i've got alot to catch up on.. oh man, you still have 6 more days of school?? my kids have been out a little over a week now and it's really really nice :) yes, I agree, the first thing you need to do is make sure the kids can entertain themselves (maybe even feed themselves?) for a bit when they wake up so you can sleep in just a bit longer :)
