School got out on Friday and up until the last minute it seemed like we would never get to summer. But Saturday came and so did the sun. There are kids on bikes zooming through the neighborhood. My husband got out and pressure washed the patio and deck until everything looked brand new. I filled the bird feeders and planted an herb garden. Last night I counted 5 kids out on the swingset in the backyard. The walls of the dining room were repainted a fresh white which is brightening up the whole house. The neighborhood got together for drinks and barbecue. I've already read two books just for fun. Summer is officially here and I can get used to it!
