Yesterday was our last official day of school—although we have lots of reading left to do and movies to watch on rainy days, and Laurel has one paper to finish and the ACT to study for. For Duncan, it's the end of seventh grade, and Laurel has finished her sophomore year of high school. His very last assignment was to write an essay about, well, of course, our trip to France.
And today we can officially declare as the first day of summer! Randy and I kicked off summer with the Skeeter Run, a 5K to raise money for mosquito nets in Africa. The race began at 8 a.m., and it was really, really hot. It might be our only 5K of the summer, although Randy is going to be training all summer for a triathlon in August.
I'm ready for summer. I'm looking forward to afternoons in the mountains, sitting by the river while the kids swim; hiking and camping; spending lots of time with friends and family; and getting a few projects done around the house. And that's about all I hope to do!
