Because we have been doing our very best, and are off to a pretty good start.
Yesterday the drive-in (a unique form of happy American torture), today the beach.
We haven't even seen ALL of the cousins yet.
We've eaten popsicles, popsicles, watermelon, corn on the cob, popsicles, ice cream, and popsicles.
We will have lived an entire summer in two weeks. I think come July 15th the only thing left for us to do will be to pack all our summer stuff away and pull out the books for school. Too much summer is bad for you, don't you know. Cramming all of summer into two weeks might just be bordering on really bad for you.
I'm happy, I'm exhausted. Full of joy and appreciation for seeing almost all of my family all in one place.
We are missing the big boys and Uncle Jeff, and missing them quite a bit. We can't complain though, as they have an amazing opportunity. They are at Creation 2012, playing on the indie stage tomorrow! So cool. I know their parents are so proud of them, as are all of we. Even though we miss them, we are happy they are doing something they love and doing it so well. If you can't make it to Creation 2012, then just listen to 3 Shades of Blue here, and of course buy their music!
And now it is off to sleep, followed by cramming in more family and more summer tomorrow.
