Top 10 Favorite Things About Summer--

1. The Today show- If this comes on during the school year and I see it, I’m late. During the summer, I get to sit back, prop my feet up, and spend the morning with Matt, Meredith, and Al. Ahh, the simple things!

2. Running in the AM- Rarely during the school year do I wake up in time to run before I go to school. For some reason, it’s easier for me to wake up early in the summer, and I have to if I want to beat this heat!

3. Days spent at home- with no where to go, nothing to do, and no makeup to put on! These days are still few and far between, but every now and then I get one.

4. Lunch Out- Everyday during the school year, I eat in the lunchroom with sweet little children. Getting to go out to eat is such a treat! And I get to meet Craig sometimes too, which is an added bonus.

5. Pool/Beach time- Gotta love the hours spent by the pool or on the beach-- with a good book in hand I could stay ALL day!

6. Road trips- I LOVE to go places. We lucked out and got to go to Panama City before the oil came. And in a few days we’re headed to West Virginia to see Craig’s family. Even just overnight trips make me happy- just a change of scenery.

7. Long days- I love that the sun doesn’t go down until late. I love to sit outside with Craig and the dogs, or have friends over, and just talk.

8. No school!!- This should probably be first on my list. By May, it doesn’t matter how wonderful the kids are, it’s time for a break. When August rolls around, I’ll be excited again, but right now the time off is A-MAZING!

9. House Projects- time off frees my brain to focus on the house- anything from rearranging, to cleaning out closets- I don’t get to focus enough on the house during the school year.

10. Summers @ Mayfair- There is ALWAYS something going on at Mayfair in the summer- so far this year we’ve had VBS, Summer Praise & Prayer, and now Marriage Matters. I’m also working on Connect3 this year. Always something to keep me busy! J
