Summer break is here, and I couldn't be happier. No more homework, although we will be working on some math skills and of course continue reading, this will be a big fat break from the tons of assigned work and deadlines given to my middle schoolers.

Summer break means lots of housework together as a family, lots of trips to the pool, some visits to the library, making homemade raspberry jam, blueberry harvest (any day now), camping trips, fireworks, big ward parties, BBQ's, fair (ugh), relaxing, sleeping in, and warm, warm sunshine! Finally!

Here's the kiddos this morning playing with Niki's kids, and I love this picture because they are squinting and trying to cover their eyes because the sun is shining so brightly, and I say Finally! Bring on the sunshine!
