Most certainly it is summer. We're having the most ordinary summer weather here. Yes, summer. Thanks for the rain. Of course we were expecting you. Enjoy your stay.
But honestly, I could not be more elated to have a no school life. College starts this fall and my homeschooling days are over. I am off! Onward my voyage to become more learn-ed and smart-ed. My finals are over, my registration is done, and here I am, filling my brilliant mind with such a stimulating occupation.
Indeed my friends, I am babysitting. And I am tired. But to move aside from this incredibly fascinating subject, let me bring you to the attention of a doll. Because we all know why you're here.
I am very happy with her eyes. In fact, I think I'll tell her.
To whom it may concern:
Your eyes are spectacular. You looked into the sun just the way I asked, even without your sunglasses perched across your nose as the eye specialist advised.
And by the way, this book is far above and beyond. It's better than the sensation of popsicles on your tongue after a run.
And then you must climb trees. It's a summer 'yes.' If you haven't, I pity you. But don't climb my tree. For it is mine. Find your own.
Of course, if you happen to climb my tree with roller skates, by all means do so. I will watch through the lens of my camera.
All in all, the first two weeks of my little summer have been good. But it's time for a sleepover with myself. You know the kind; Pinterest until dawn, PollyAnna playing in the background, and then sleep. Sleepy sleep with no words popping into my head like babysitting, run, or get up. That is my happy. It will come, dear friends. I have hope.
