Ahhh. . . Summer

Today is the first official day of summer break for me. While I am not willing to admit that I am a workaholic (for the obvious reason that I am not a workaholic), I did spend the day at school getting started on some school related projects. But this evening had an entirely different feel to it without the weight of an impending school day bearing down on me. CrazyMom and I went on a walk with our three youngest kids down to the creek to catch a crawdad. (We only took our youngest three because our oldest four kids took off for camp this morning.) It was a beautiful, carefree moment that captured the essence of summer for me.
