Hello there, friend,

It was so hot this weekend that we turned on the air conditioning for the first time. We spent most of our time at the garage sale sweating and complaining that it felt like July. Thankfully, the garage sale was fruitful and we made quite a bit of money. But I was so exhausted after a busy week and ended up with a head cold and an ear ache. I slept most of the day yesterday. Today I feel better, but not great.

So I look forward to this week with ease. We have fewer commitments, the calendar less full. I want to slow down and enjoy these last few weeks before school ends, to think about what summer will look like. I always step into summer with high expectations, and this summer will be no different. Except that, looking back, my family barely had a summer last year. Between the erratic weather and our tumultuous move, we were barely hanging on. And so I welcome this summer with open arms, ready to dive in to whatever it brings.
