I'm not a big fan of summer. It's just too hot most of the time for me. I prefer snuggly sweaters and hot coffee to shorts and ice water. This is one great way to cool off in our backyard.
On a day like today, where it's not hot (just hovering around 70), I move around quicker and actually get things done around the house. Today, laundry day. Three more loads to go and every clothing item in the house will be clean, perhaps not folded, but clean and dry.
There are parts of summer I like: gardening. ice cream. cold showers. swim lessons. And the moment I realize the boys go back to school in five weeks! Halfway, Moms, halfway!
