Summer Time, Summer Time...

Ahhh, the dog days of summer--of lying down, napping, soaking up the sun, with a little bit of exercise thrown.

Summer is just getting started this weekend. We have family and friends coming into town--so excited! Looking forward to taking them to touristy sites and things around our locale...And we have about 3 weeks of visitors in a row. It will be a blast! (from the past, of course).

But, Isn't there always a But, But....I have already purchased school supplies and have my kiddos registered for school already! Yikes! Only a couple more weeks, and school starts again.

Summer never seems quite long enough for me...And I don't understand why Colorado doesn't follow a regular schedule of Sept-June. Nope, not for us, it's Aug-May. Why do we go to school the hottest month of the year? No idea! I'd rather be lounging by the pool those dog days of summer, instead of getting kids ready, lunches packed, and all the school drama that comes with it....

Oh well! My house is cleaned, dusted and stocked with treats. Bring on the vacationers...who, by some miracle live in areas that have school in regular months! :)
