I love the summer!  I love it!

Summer in the Wood household means weekly trips to the library, swimming lessons and museum visits.  It's also chapter long read-a-louds that I can't find time to squeeze in during the school year.

This year I also added a book club with just the older kids and me.

It's been so much fun, reading a book together and discussing it.  There's only time for a few, but it's been so enriching.  I miss them so much when they head back to school each fall.

I love every school break, every holiday and summer--I just can't wait for.

We still have a lot ahead of us.  Emma goes to EFY next week, later we're heading to Yellowstone and then Emma and Anson will be gone to Girls Camp and Scout Camp at the same time.

I love the school year, too.  I'm not gonna diss it.  There's a lot to be said for schedules, due dates and consistent learning.  But ah, I love the summer!
