Schools out for summer!  I always get a bit anxious at the very start of summer vacation.  So many long days ahead of you to fill.  Sunny days that just scream "go outside...do something productive" and two kids to entertain.  I don't know what's more annoying, trying to find something to do or packing up the kids in an attempt to get out of the house.

But I settle in.  I find a routine and then I love summer vacation.  I like just the right balance of lounging around and doing things.

And I have to say that so far that my summer is off to a great start.  I started off the last day of school going out with my teacher friends and getting totally wasted.  Like really, really wasted.  We drank and danced and sang and laughed and it was totally awesome.  I have really good drunken dance moves.  It felt so good to get out and blow off some steam, especially since I didn't have to drive (it's all about responsibility).  It felt good.  It felt fun.

Then we went upstate with some of our closest friends and another couple with all of our kids, except I left Arya with my mom.  The drive was too long and there was no way she would sleep in a pack and play so she got to spend a little QT with Grandma.  Isabella just loves the outdoors.  She had an awesome time riding the quads, petting the horses, and running around and playing in the grass.  She was so good!

Then there was a family trip to Sesame Place which was actually really fun.  You never know if Arya's gonna be a pill or not, but she was really good.  She's just at that age where she wants to run free and just can't.  

I think I've earned myself a little down time to just kind of bum around the house...and maybe a little bit of ice cream.  I just like having the freedom to do what I want without having to worry about work, grading papers, choosing an appropriate outfit, commuting.  Although I do still have two little bosses to answer to.  Happy Summer!
