Summertime Recap

I thought I would put together a top ten list of things I have especially enjoyed about this summer and maybe you have too! Some of these are usual reasons for enjoying summertime, while other reasons are more personal to me, especially this summer.

10) Wonderful, hot, glorious drought, boating weather.

9) Staying up late – this meant longer days with my kids, an extra bed time story, and more bath time.

8) Loosing a first tooth – Ryan lost his first tooth this summer, specifically August 2. He just tugged it out when he was brushing his teeth. He didn’t care about his tooth fairy money. He wanted to keep the tooth.

7) Blond curls – enough said.

6) Toddler pronunciations like – “sandbok,” “uside,” “shooooting star,” “baving suit,” “waydee bug,” “pop-i-cle.” These are the ones I don’t need to translate. There are many more but I’d have to do some serious translating.

5) Tiny feet in flip flops, crocks and bare feet.

4) Ok, this is really sentimental, but I love seeing the sunshine reflect off Brady’s eye lashes. I can see a hint of red in his eyelashes and I want to just kiss them!

3) Hunting for ladybugs, grasshoppers, caterpillars, spiders, salamanders and frogs. We haven’t found any frogs yet this summer but are doing really good on everything else.

2) Tanned backs and white tushies.

1) Watching “firsts” happen, first events that can only take place during the summer. Such occurrences as: catching a fish, going tubing, jet skiing, riding a roller coaster, camping, and riding on a Ferris Wheel.

These are the highlights of my summer, what were your summertime favorites?
