So I have created list of the top ten reasons to LOVE SUMMER!
#10. You get to Swim! Swimming is awesome it cools you off, it gets you out in the sun, the sun has important vitamins that we all need, and swimming is exercise at its most fun.
#9. Baseball, who doesn't love a summer evening at the baseball field. Way better then a fall evening of football. Trust me!
#8. Long afternoons sitting in a beach chair reading a great book with no where to go.
#7. Family Reunions, who doesn't love a good ole family reunion where Aunt Jo says the same thing every year, "Well look at you I remember when you were just a tiny thing. How old are you now 16? 33 Well where did the time go?" See family reunions are awesome where else are you permanently 16?
#6. Camping, camp fires, sleeping on the ground, delicious smores. Really do I have to go on. The smores alone SHOULD convince you that summer must not end.
#5. Fireworks, friends, BBQ. Yes, I am aware that if we don't have winter we don't have Christmas but if we keep summer we keep parties that end with fireworks. The good kind not the kind that end relationships. YAY SUMMER!!
#4. Number 4 is for you and what you like best about summer? And NO you can't say that it ends that is not an option in this post.
#3. Flowers, Gardening. Fresh veggies from the garden pretty flowers that you grew yourself. It just feels you up with all kinds of happiness. When in the winter can you find that kind of happiness? It can't be found I tell you it can't.
#2. Homework, be honest here do you really miss homework? Notes that have to be signed and the day to day questioning of, "Did you do your reading, Do you have any notes from your teacher, Why didn't you tell me about this a week ago, it is due tomorrow." Really, really do you want to deal with THAT?
#1. IT IS NOT WINTER! Have I not made my point as long as the kiddos are home it means one very important thing. IT IS SUMMER and NOT WINTER. Just remember every time those monsters are driving you crazy the top 10 reasons why it is a GOOD thing they are home.
