Bring it on

As many of you already know I am a speech therapist at a public school.  Which means that I have holidays and summers off :)

Please don’t hate me!  This morning I was talking to a fellow teacher about spring break, which is next week for us, and all of the things that I am looking forward to.  Then I realized that it is almost April.  This means that summer is right around the corner.  Which lead me to thinking about all the “summer” things that I am looking forward to. 

Then I decided that I would share this with you guys, my wonderful readers :)

    I love that picture of the boys! You’ve got to frame it!

    I also LOOOVE watermelon! They’re already selling it, but way overpriced. I can’t wait for the farmer’s markets. I love it!

  4. Watermelon is my latest obsession! I’m excited about the arrival of the baby this summer, plus I get to start mat leave early which means I have 2 months to enjoy the sun with Lincoln before the baby arrives :)
