Summer is here. Just like most educators, I am so thankful that this time of year is here. You see, I spend ten months out of the year pouring my heart and soul into other people's children, and now I get two whole months to pour my heart and soul into my own precious child.

It's not that Chandler gets ignored during those ten months. Don't you worry about that for a minute! It's not that I don't enjoy pouring myself into other children. On the contrary, I feel that is what I have been called to do. However, it is nice to spend time with the child God gave to me without having to worry about other kids for a while.

Summer is the time of year that I can explore new things, refresh my mind, and do new things with my son. At four, he's at the perfect age to do a lot of things he's never been big enough to do before like go fishing at the lake, watch a movie in the theater, catch lightning bugs in a jar, go to the drive-in, play hide-and-seek at dusk, and more. He's also old enough to start making memories that he will be able to remember for years to come. For these reasons, I have decided to make the most of this summer.

Many of the things I have planned are for the whole family, like taking a trip to the zoo, catching an Atlanta Braves game, and pizza at Louie's. Other things are just for the two of us while Brent is at work. I can't wait to spend time with my sweet little guy (and the big one too) this summer.

Is everything going to be perfect? No. Will everything work out according to plan? Absolutely not.

Will there be lots of laughs? Definitely. Will memories that will last a lifetime be made? I think so.

Stay tuned for updates on our summer happenings.
