What I Love About Summer
Now, I was born and bred in New York, so southern summers still get to me. The difference in the humidity is amazing down here. It still shocks me. But, if I get past the humidity, there really are things about summer that I love. And no other season is like it. I love that I can turn off the alarm clock. I can let my kids sleep in until they want to wake up. (Although I draw the line at 11!) This is also a perk of being a stay at home mom. I just really enjoy the laid back schedule that we have in the summertime. Compared to the full to the brim schedule we have during the school year, it's a welcome change of pace.I love watching my kids catch fireflies. Even Izzie and Doodle still do this from time to time. Camping! I absolutely love a warm summer's night sitting around a campfire with my husband and kids. We are talking about going when Hubby gets home from his trip. Swimming in the lake is always a favorite. Or just swimming in general! Being able to go on vacation, which this year is supposed to include going to see the Nationals play! Which is another summer love-baseball! I don't keep up as much as Hubby does and he loves to go to games when he's out of town. He just went to go see the Angels at one game and the Dodgers at another and when he was in Colorado went to see the Rockies. Doodle is very jealous of this. I'm personally a Yankees fan who married a Braves and Dodgers fan. The main thing I love about summer is the time we get to spend together as a family, which is becoming scarce these days with Izzie getting ready to move out. We have always been a very close family and it's always so much fun to do things together and discover stuff! Tell me what your favorite things about summer are in the comments! What do you and your family do?
