Look out, here comes Summer!

So I realized today that there are only 11 days of school left for my kids.

And IMMEDIATELY I start trying to figure out how to get all MY stuff done before that happens.

Obviously, it isn't going to happen, but that's just how my mind works when I'm up against a deadline.

I am extremely excited about one thing, though; summer means no more packing lunches!
Can you hear the angels singing??!! 
I can!

I'm not even sure why I despise this task so much, but I really hate packing lunches.  Buddy absolutely REFUSES to buy lunch at school unless I make him, so I have packed his lunch EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. this year with maybe 6 exceptions.  On those days, it was breakfast-for-lunch day - mini-pancakes, sausage, syrup and the like.  It's generally the 3rd Friday of the month and a much needed break for me.

So the thought of TEN WHOLE WEEKS of no lunches to pack??!! It thrills me!

What doesn't thrill me??

TEN WHOLE WEEKS of my kids at home all the time!

What about you? What are you most excited about this summer?

  1. This made me laugh...realizing school is out and thinking "how can I get all MY stuff done?" So funny!

  2. I CAN HEAR THE ANGELS SINGING!! No more packing lunches, no more scurrying out the door...praise Jesus! (for now).
