It’s official: school is out and summer is at hand.
Granted, we’ve had freakishly cool, gray, Seattle-like weather here in the Upper Midwest so it doesn’t really feel like summer. You will get zero complaints from this Pacific Northwestern bred, perimenopausal girl. I say temps in the sixties are sexy.
This marks the first summer that Coleman has off in full. Both kids attended year-round school programs from Pre-K to 6th Grade, and this is a summer I’ve been anticipating for a few years now.
I don’t have to wake anyone up today.
Okay, that’s not completely true. Aidan starts her summer nanny job today (her second year with the same family), and she will have to arrive there at 8:30 a.m. sharp. No worries. Her job site? Right next door. How’s that for ease of commute?
Cole, on any given day, will likely sleep until Noon, which means my work mornings will not seem all that different from those during the school year. I am worried, however, that the wake up time will creep and that soon enough, my son will be living like a Lost Boy, rising only at dusk. As long as he doesn’t start to feast on human blood, I figure it’s all part of being a male teen, right? Right.
That said, I designed a simple 3 x 4 card to celebrate the end of school. In the package, you’ll find a layered PSD (so you can change out all of the colors), a PNG (to print as is, and these colors match the Seafoam Edition of Project Life), or a printable PDF.
Here’s to summer!
Speaking of summer…
