Summer*, so far,

has included
  • baseball games
  • lazy mornings
  • sunshine
  • Samuel's 15th birthday
  • friends
  • making plans to travel to Indiana
  • a trip to a lake cabin
  • hot dogs
  • late-night movies
  • work for Samuel
  • babysitting for Moriah and Susannah
  • softball
  • sunburns
  • trips to town
  • bike rides
  • raking
  • staying up too late since it's light until late (like now--note the post time!)
  • playgrounds
  • cleaning
  • and soccer,
not in that exact order, of course.

And I'm sure there's more but that's what comes to mind as I try to think about all the things I could update the blog with.

Summer* is always welcome (duh) but this year it seems even more welcome.

I know it is to Samuel, who is ever so grateful to have a break from his early bus rides.
I know it is to Jim, whose schedule just opened up during the week.
I know it is to me, who worked my behind off this past school year.

Bring on those lazy, hazy, crazy dayz of summer...the Doepken family is ready!

*even though it's not officially summer yet...maybe my blog post should be called Late spring, so far,?
