Being gone last weekend I realized I missed blogging about the beginning of Summer...the lightest day of the year! However, I couldn't miss the signs around here. When I saw this go up I knew we were in the thick of it:
Jack got his tent out to get it ready for tomorrow as he heads off for a week at Boy Scout camp. It's his 25th year of scout camp and I hope the weather is kind...it's warm and humid for the beginning of the week, but looks cool and nice by the end. He may not want to come home!
The little pool looks very forlorn out in the wilderness, but if you look closely you'll see these two little heads bobbing around:
Lexi and Addy
I laughed at this silly pic of Addy in her goggles. She's learned how to swim under water this year and she's soooo excited! Notice the purple lips...and it's not because she ate anything purple! It was time to get out of the pool! It was getting dark and she and her sister decided that catching these little guys was in order:
Fireflies...Lightening Bugs...whatever you call them, are out in force. I couldn't catch a pic of this guys' yellow, lite up butt! The girls then curled up with a snack and blankets on the wicker couch on the deck to watch the light show going on in the trees of the Creepy Woods. If you live out West, you don't see these cool guys...they do put on a fun show! The girls really loved it.
The raspberries are coming along nicely and soon it will be "jammin'" time!
We finally have our first real crop of blueberries coming on! Jack is so proud!
Green beans...check..the okra isn't doing as nice as last year, but we'll see what happens as the season goes on. The Farmer's markets are coming on so hopefully fresh fruit and veggies will be available soon. Hope your signs of Summer are making you smile...especially if you survived the past Winter! Bring it on!
