It's Unofficially Summer Now

This last week summer unofficially arrived here in the North Pole. It's been pretty amazing, actually. I've spent as much time as I possibly could just sitting in the sun on the deck, responsibilities be darned. I am seriously completely solar-powered, and my body is craving the sunshine and Vitamin D the same way it craves oxygen. And it has been absolutely wonderful.
Basking in the Sun--Finally!

Puccini is loving it, too. And so are the girls, despite the fact that Chloe yet again has a surly expression on her face. I promise she is a happy child, she is just a little anti-photography right now I guess?

Joel and I have been walking as much as we can, which is nice. It's something we never seem to do during the school year, even when there isn't any snow on the ground. It feels good to get my body moving!
Inaugural Backyard BBQ Summer 2014

Finally, we inaugurated the grill for Summer 2014 tonight. Absolute heaven. There's nothing quite like a grilled steak in your own backyard on a heavenly summer evening. Oh, and four helpings of corn-on-the-cob, too! Love that Sophia!

I'm so ready for official summer. Only two more weeks of school for the girls. I can hardly wait--I am so tired of waking up early, making lunches, signing papers, supervising homework. The long, lazy days of summer cannot come soon enough!

Happy Sunday!
