I'm looking forward to...

1. No schedules
2. Sleeping in
3. Swimming
4. Lots of baseball
5. Late nights
6. Yard work
7. Smells of Summer
8. Vacation
9. Fun with friends
10.Anything else????

What are you looking forward to the most this Summer????

Come on...let's live vicariously through you!

Adding to your list...

playing on the lake (in Arkansas!)

4th of July!

I adore can't come soon enough for me. I also love that we mostly stay in the 80s. Not too many 90 degree days here!

I got two words for ya ...

Flip. Flops.

Ooooohhhhh yeah. And even better than that ... NO SOCKS TO SORT!

(Plus, I wanna play in the 3,5,8 & 9 too!)

Oh man, I am BEYOND ready for summer - but we're just getting into the 50s up here in Anchorage and we've still got a couple months til we really see anything close to "summer". One of the things I miss most about living in TN is the hot, humid weather!

But by this summer, I'll have a baby and I'm looking forward to that most of all :-D

The Pool. The Pool. The Pool.
AND playing all day with my girls and their buddies. Making unplanned trips to see family. Just generally chillin'

I wanted to look forward to lazy days, but then I took a look at our calendar June - August and realized it's already busier than I'd like. #1 Summer indulgence = sleeping in! :)

How about...
No backpacks
No lunches to pack
No buses to catch
No alarm going off!

Iced tea in the sun
Lounging in the pool
Cooking on the grill
Dinner on the patio
Music filling the house almost every moment
Long walks
Open windows
I could go on and on and on

I am a summer girl! :)

AbbyLane said...

yes i love summer...i love....

taking walks after dinner and it's still light out...
eating watermelon...
and of course having a seed-spitting contest after..
the sights/sounds of new things--little birds, rabbits hopping...
popsicles...(banana ones to be exact)
picnics in the park....
watching fireflies (and inevitably thinking of that faith hill song...)

and it might just be me...but i think people are nicer in the summer :) love you

Definately no schedules, camping, back yard campfires, hiking, the beach, bikeriding, the pool! I can't wait!!

Looking forward to no school, no schedules, warm weather & outside play, and going to see my best friend in California. I've missed you & your blog but alas it just has been put to the side for this season in my life. I hope you're doing well! Blessings to you!!

Vacation! Flip flops, shorts, long summer nights, sunsets, enjoying the veggies and fruits from our garden we recently planted. And definitely, no schedules for the kidos!

All of your list except Soccer instead of baseball, the pool, and lots of cooking on the grill. For now we get to have 85 degree weather, that's a start. Happy Friday!

No unpacking backpacks...and no pile of school papers on the counter that need to be gone through! Yay...can't wait!!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
