- baseball games
- lazy mornings
- Samuel's 15th birthday
- 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
- trips to town
- bike rides
- staying up too late since it's light until late (like now--note the post time!)
- and soccer,
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,?
