BlogCarnival: Summer Edition!

The school year here is winding down. Yesterday I subbed a half a day for a 6th grade teacher who sadly missed out on half a day of the 6th Grade Kickball Tournament. Apparently it's going all week long! The temperature is consistently in the high 60s if not 10-20 degrees higher now, and the weather is mostly sunny. These are the days we live for: grilling everything, having the windows and doors open, heading up to Flat Rock to swim (if the water's warm enough!) or just hang out on the rocks, watching the birds and bugs, dressing in hardly a thing...

For me the very best days are the ones when we all pile in the car and head to the lake, swimsuits on, picnic lunch packed: sketch book, colored pencils, and reading book included! When we get there, we choose a spot and spread out a big blanket. The kids run off to swim & explore (they're old enough now to do that without direct supervision!) and Jacqueline and I lie down and read or sketch or take pictures, just enjoying the sun and lake and the grass and birds... *le sigh*

How about you?

  1. sound fun. Reminds me of a quarry with water we used to go to, in high school. Climbing around and finding a place to sit on the rocks - enjoying the sun. Haven't thought about that in a long time! Thanks!
