Enjoying it

So, Connor is enjoying Summer Vacation.

Today, he walked out the back door through the patio room and out to the grass. He said, "It's my summer vacation. I like summer vacation!" He spent most of the day outside, running around the yard, swinging on his rope chair swing, and just really enjoying the day.




It got even better when we put up the tent from a couple of weekends ago. I never put it away at the campsite. It's typically damp, and hard to sweep out at the site, so I just bring it home, and we set it up on the grass and let it air out that way. I think that's Connor's definite summer signal.




I had also set out the sleeping bags to get rid of the smoky smell. Connor grabbed one, as well as a pillow that I'd washed, and set it up in the tent.




Then he just layed in there, looking up at the sky through the vents, saying, "I love summer vacation!"




Smart kid. We should all do that.

I'm not sure when it all happened, but somewhere along the line, life got REAL complicated.

Thanks Connor for pointing out that sometimes it need not be that way.
