It's the first day of summer vacation. I've been having bittersweet feelings about this break. I was worried that I would spend my days yelling at the kids. But, I've decided to take a different approach. Yell less, play more. Say no less, say yes more. Clean less (if that's possible), make more messes. Good idea, eh?
They spent the afternoon in Ben's room. It's a mess. I'll clean it on August 8th. Then, they found all the remote control cars from Christmas 2008 whose batteries have been dead since January 2009. 17 AA batteries later, we were playing in the backyard and drinking some lemonade.
Just a word of caution, do not, I repeat do not, let Green Lantern drive the Jeep Rubicon.
And always wear your seat belt.
I think this is going to be a fun summer. I'm very optimistic. But, it's only day 1.
