SUMMER VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As summer stretches her long legs out before us, we have so many, many things to look forward to: days on end at Schoodic, lazy mornings absent of backpacks, crustless sandwiches and harried reminders to "stay focused!" while getting ready, days at the beach, camping, a trip to Storyland and Santa's Village, campfires, outside dinners, catching lightening bugs, bike rides, hiking, vegetables from the garden and the umpteen yard projects we have begun.
