What I wouldn't do...

Oh how I miss summer! I am on fall break, but I wish it was summer break! I was just helping Rich bring a load of stuff from the houseboat outside to sit in the sun. Everything that we think we might be able to save, is wet. It was a bit sad looking at everything piled up in our basement. Oh well. It's still a good day. I tried to call my mom so she could drive by my house and look at everything spread out in the yard. Anyone who knows her, knows that she will probably convulse seeing the mattresses laying along the banisters of my porch and all the chairs and cushions spread out in the yard. I can't stop smiling just thinking about her seeing it. For those of you who don't know her, she is obsessed with cleaning! I didn't get that gene. LOL I like my house to be neat, but she is the EXTREME and her yard is always immaculate.
It's funny how we seem to fall into those rituals even on those unplanned occasions. Just like the lake. We have rituals that are just understood. We put the kids' life jackets on before they get out of the car, Rich backs the boat in with us in it, I drive us to the houseboat while they sit on the back, I stay in the boat and hand everything out, Rich stocks the refrigerator, I turn the fans on, etc. I could go on and on, but it's always the same. Can you tell I miss summer? I am always looking forward to summer! Looks like we will be building a new houseboat, so I will be extremely excited this year for summer to roll around. Rich and dad are going to get some of the supplies Friday, so hopefully we will be ready by summer. Haha! I say that in a joking way, but yet I know it will take us much longer than the average. We roll that way! It took us 15 months to build our house and lots of stomach medicine for myself.
Well enough about that.

Trixie's outfit

School/team shirts 4 Emily & Meredith
