Beginning on Thursday, it will be 8 weeks and counting! 8 weeks to pack in all of the things that I would like to do during the school year, but don’t really have the time to do. Summer used to be 3 months long – a long, long time ago! So with only 56 days, I will have to get busy!!

Walk in the rain
Make a big puzzle
Read a good, inspirational book
Celebrate the feasts of St. Anthony (June 13th) and the Sacred Heart (month of June) with special food, etc.
make homemade ice cream and bread
try new recipes
take lots of photographs
Play Dance Game with the kids on the Wii
Go to mass an extra day of the week
Take the kids to adoration at St. Peter & to get snowballs afterwards

I’m sure that I’m forgetting something. I guess I’ll just make it up as I go along. That’s what is so great about summer!
