Okay, here's a few more reasons I love summer:
Socks - or lack thereof. Since 6 of us are anti-shoes in the summer the only socks I wash and hang out are Jerry's. During the winter, we fill an entire drying rack with them.
Sunshine and heat.
Going out to the garden to grab dinner fixins.
Eating ice cold watermelon on a hot day.
Braden's birthday on the 4th of July.
Spending entire days outside. Only coming in when we start falling asleep.
Hearing the distant sound of the ice cream truck.
Butterflies and bumble bees.
Birds splashing in the bird feeder.
Eating breakfast on our back patio.
Mowing the yard.
No school drop off and pick ups.
