Summer Break Begins!

There are many markers used to determine the start of summer...Summer Solstice, a high school graduation, a June vacation, the flowers blooming in the yard, birds chirping in the trees...

This year, for our family, it's defined by the end of our son's first official year at school.  Sure, it was only Kindergarten but he was at a 'real' school, with 'real attendance' and homework, and a schedule.  The last day of school for him was yesterday.  Thus, the beginning of summer starts today!

For me, this means later bedtime for the kids, cooking out on the grill, sitting on the patio watching the kids run through the grass, vacations to the beach and lake house, social gatherings with friends, day trips with the kids to exciting places, day camps for the kids, swimming in the pool, driving with the sunroof open and the music blaring...

What does the start of summer mean to you?
