2 Weeks at Home With Mom to Start Off the Summer (TONS of pics!)

This summer is off to a great start.  Everyone is relaxing and already has sun-kissed skin.  One of my favorite parts of being a teacher is that it allows me to be home for the summer.  I spend that time catching up on things that I want to do like reading and having lunch with friends, as well as things I have to do like clean out closets and prepare for next school year.  This summer I got to spend one week with each of the boys one on one.  That is something that never happens!  We did trips to the aquarium, playgrounds, movies and the pool.  Lots of summer fun going on in the last two weeks.  And it all ended with a great weekend of 4th of July parties with family and friends.  And today - off to camp and day care!  Happy summer!
