Here Comes Summer!

Well, it's official. Today was the first day of summer vacation. Man, has Brady been ready for school to be out. His district was the last one to dismiss due to the number of snow days this passed winter. He started summer camp today and he was happy to have some structure, but not too much. I'm encouraged about the format at his camp this year so we're hoping for a good experience. This photo was taken after he got off the bus yesterday. All the kids were whooping and hollering-they were so happy to be free! We celebrated by heading to the local snow cone shack-SnoBiz. Brady's absolute favorite-he even has his own punchcard this year. LOL

Tonight the boys are headed to the ballpark to watch the Cardinal game. I can't decide what to do first with everyone out of the house-scrapbook, watch a movie, clean, do laundry, go shopping. Probably will do a little of everything. I have to say, I too, love the relaxed pace of the summer months. June will be steady eddie, but look out July and August. Brady will be playing baseball and participating in a six week basketball camp through the Y so it will get busier that's for sure.

Hoping to get a chance to work in some fun things this summer. Would really like Brady to read Tom Sawyer with me and then drive up to Hannibal. We'd also like to get to the zoo, but not sure with all the road construction going on. There is also a Marvel Superheroes exhibit at the Science Center I'd like to take the boys to if we can coordinate schedules. A couple summer's ago we visited the Superman museum in Metropolis, IL-my boys love the superheroes! Brady got to visit the new children's garden at the Botancial Garden, but I'd like to take him again this summer. We'll see-the time seems to get away from us. Who knows, we may hold out and try to take a little family vacation again in October. For the moment, we're kicking back and catching our breath as we get ready to roll into summer!
