Thursday was our last day of school.
Thursday evening - I headed out for ballooning - the first time (for me) of the season.
It's going to be a fantastic summer.
I hit the ground running this morning. I wrote "SLEEP IN" on the weekly calendar, but even as I wrote it - I laughed.
I'm simply not capable. As the summer goes on, the time will drift from today's 5am wake up to a lazy 6am, but I'm a morning person.
I love the quiet, the jump start, the calm, and the way my brain calculates so much better than it does in the evening hours.
There are only a few light things on today's plan and schedule, which is how most of our summer is laid out this year.
There is no karate for the boys this summer - the first time in four years
No camps this summer - the first time in, gosh - twelve plus years.
It opens our days up for more possibilities.
I had the kid's make their summer manifestos a few weeks ago already.
Today I have to sit down and make mine. It's in my head, but I prefer to have it jotted down in a journal.
I'll share more on those tomorrow.
A favorite moment from last night's ballooning was when the balloon was on the ground and we were chatting with the land owners.
Him, pointing to his son: He just got home. He was doing cement work all day
Me: Oh yeah? Well I worked in a kindergarten classroom on the last day of school.
It was a hands down win.
