Can you hear the crickets chirping??

School let out 3 weeks ago.  The last time I updated my blog was.....uh, 3 weeks ago.

You seeing a pattern yet?

A few days ago, I sat at my computer and tried to come up with something.

Really, I did.

But my mind was nothing more than a blank slate (cue chirping crickets).

I desperately wanted to write something....anything.

The. words. would. not. come.

I came to the conclusion that it's time for me to take a break...just for a little while.

I need to spend time with my kids this summer because....well,  I'll never get this summer back again and either will they.

The summer of 2012 only happens once in a lifetime and I want to spend this time creating new memories with my kids.  I want to truly be present in every moment...and not wondering how I can spin the latest hysterical adventure into an entertaining blog post.

We've been spending time swimming in our new pool....

Swimming with friends at the neighborhood pool....

Swimming at the grandparents' pool....

Running through the sprinklers....

Hanging out at the park with friends...

                  Geocaching (outdoor treasure hunts - google it)...SO much fun!!!

We've gone bowling, to the movies, on long, relaxing bike rides, perusing the farmers market for tasty summer fruits, tending to our summer garden (we have grapes, lemons and peaches galore!), playing the Wii, engaging in popsicle eating contests and water balloon fights.

We are having the time of our lives.

So, my friends, I will be taking this time away from blogging to relax and enjoy the lazy days of summer with my family.

I still plan on visiting your blogs when I have time because I want to stay up-to-date on the latest in your lives.   And, of course, you'll still see me on Facebook from time to time so I hope you'll keep in contact with me.

And, who knows....I may not be able to stay away for very long.

Blogging is one of my biggest passions...I love what it does for my soul.

I love what YOU all do for my soul.

All that's left now is to wish you all a happy and wonderful summer....and I'll be back, sooner than you know. Registered & Protected

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
