The First Summer Day

Today was the first full day off from school. It was jam packed. We went on an early morning long bike ride, took care of the gardens, looked for berries, had a picnic, went swimming at the beach, went fishing, stopped at the school, I did chores while they played their computers/playstation, went to Target, bought a new inflatable pool, had a barbecue dinner, emptied the old leaky pool and had bucket wars, and finally settled down to watch the Sponge Bob Squarepants movie as part of their big plan to stay up as late as they could. They were both in bed (voluntarily!) by 9:45 and asleep by 9:47.

My favorite things that they said today were:

Jeff: "I already know this this is going to be a great summer because you're going to
be here."

Tim: "Remember when we went on the bike ride...wait, that was today?"

We'll never forget the summer that you were "our au pair from New York" and as you can see the activities haven't changed very much around here. I'm very happy that this time it's me doing them too!

I can only imagine that the boys are thrilled to have you all to themselves for the whole summer!!! Tell everyone I say hello and give them big hugs for me!
