Summer Is Near!!!

     Summer is right around the corner & I can hardly wait! We've already been to the beach a few times (even though the water is cold). I just have to remember to bring our big umbrella next time because Evan & I get sunburned so easily (oh, & I bought a sunscreen with a stronger SPF of 70 so hopefully that'll save our sensitive skin).
     The boys only have a few more weeks to go before school is out for the summer. I am happy about that because I'm so tired of all them being bombarded with so much homework & so many projects!! They have it so much harder than I did.....I never remember doing so many projects & taking so many tests. So much pressure on these poor kids to excel but I'm sure that it will help them be successful later in life. I always tell them that nothing will ever be handed to them....if they have a dream, it's up to them to make it happen. They will appreciate things in life a lot more if they work hard for it. Evan has made incredible progress in Pre-K & his teacher is so impressed with his love of books. When I was little, my dad used to bring home a lot of children's books for us to read (I actually have saved most of them) & it's thanks to him that I grew up loving to read & having such a vivid imagination. I'm glad that I have passed that onto my boys. Every night, I sit on the side of Evan's bed & read him a few books & he loves it! I love it as well because I get to bond with him & hopefully someday when he reads to his babies, he'll remember those special moments :)
        Speaking of special moments, my dad is coming to visit us in a few days & the boys have no clue!! They are always talking about how much they miss him & they always see things that remind them of him. I'm super excited because I haven't seen him in a while & I miss him.....he's the only person that knows how to make me laugh no matter how bad my day has gone.  Can't wait to see the look on my boy's faces when they seem him!!!
