Countdown to Summer

Some people think of Memorial Day as the beginning of summer. I think it's more complicated than that.

There are eight more mornings to get my kids off to school.
There are twelve days (counting weekends) until school is officially over.
There are eighteen days until Jacob and Faith leave for overnight camp.
There are twenty-four days until Sammy leaves for camp.

But today I happen to have a day with just about nothing on my calendar. The kids are at school. I have a few errands to run. But mostly, I plan to write all day. 

Deep sigh of gratitude!

That sounds like an awesome day.
I hope you got a lot of writing done.
I just looked at the weather report and we're it's finally going to stay above 70 for more than a day or two. That's my vote for the start of summer! :)
