Summer Lovin'....

Not like the kind of lovin' from Grease...I mean we are lovin' summer, but that title may not have had the same type of power to make you want to read more. (Always the teacher...)

We are enjoying summer! I have been professionally developed, and now am a certifiable advanced CFG coach. If you don't know what that means, don't feel bad...I'm not always completely certain either! :) I do know I spent a couple of days networking with colleagues in other buildings discussing ways to raise student achievement, which is of course a passion of mine.

I am also being allowed to sleep in until 7:30ish, with some good snuggle time after the peeling open of eyelids. I am usually awakened by a small voice asking "Do I dot skoo doday" or..."Do I dot baseball doday?"(Matthew) or "Mama...what doin?" (Ruby) or a much louder, bossier voice saying "Wate up Mama!" followed by an ear piercing repeat of "Wate up!!!!!" I'll have to leave you to guess who wakes me up in that fashion. :)

Of course summer means staying up late, which means I feel no more refreshed than usual, but the relaxed pace of summer makes things so much more bearable.

Our favorite summer thing to do is to get ice cream! (Thus explaining my waist line....) Here's Clara being told, "Find your shoes, so we can go get some ice cream"

Here's the crew enjoying ice cream...

And perhaps my favorite picture so far this Ruby showing us all that life is meant to be enjoyed. (Notice she has not one but TWO ice cream cones in her hands!) Either that or she is teaching us the life lesson of "Don't set your ice cream cone down if you don't want your sister to eat it..." Either way, I still love this picture!

God is good. All the time.
