Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Summer Sensations* We’ve Managed to Fit In So Far…
* my husband’s word

1. Swimming! Lessons and general playtime.

2. Squirt guns (mostly ‘in your face’) and water balloons.

3. Watermelons–I think we’ve had three now.

4. Summer Reading Lists. My older son has earned two free books so far, and my little one has earned one.

5. Snowcones. We’ve only been once so far. The flavors picked were birthday cake and pineapple.

6. Coach Pitch Softball. Today is practice number three, and tomorrow is game number 2.

7. Summer movies. They’ve seen Surf’s Up and Pirates of the Caribbean, and are waiting patiently for Ratatouille.

8. Sunburn. Too long at the pool one particularly sunny day.

9. Mosquito bites. Just a few so far…crossing my fingers…

10. Wild summer storms. I just don’t want the hurricanes!

11. Sailing

12. Vacation Bible School

13. Slip n’ Slide. Not me personally…

I’m hoping for the barbeque and fireworks this coming week. And my vacation won’t come till later in the summer.

  1. I’m so envious! We had two weeks of gorgeous weather in early May. I think that was our summer, and it’s over now, because for 2 weeks now, we’ve had nothing but rain and cold. Snocones, swimming, all those lovely summer sensations–just don’t seem appealing when you’re wearing long pants and a sweater. :(

    It sounds like you’ve had a busy summer already! I can’t wait to take the girls to the theatre this summer. We don’t go to the movies very often, so it will be a big treat. :)

    I love snow cones…

  3. My kids don’t start their summer holidays until TOMORROW! The poor little bunnies…

  4. Your summer sounds wonderful. The stuff that memories are made of. :)

    When my kids were small I worked for the school system and I loved having summers off with them.

  5. You’re going to be plenty busy this summer….but I hope that you able to accomplishment more things to come 😉

    Kids over here are already out of school and playing in the pool lot…that if itn’t raining. Happy TTs! Thanks visiting mine :)

  6. Susan Helene Gottfried

    Your summer’s shaping up a lot like ours so far. I’m not getting much done in terms of writing, but I’m having fun with the kids. Hope you are, too!

  7. Wylie Kinson

    Water guns and Slip n Slide are two big faves around my place.

  8. Jeez. I haven’t done any summer things yet. Barely even realized it’s summer. Seriously, I need to get out more. Glad you’re having fun!

  9. Oh wow – good for you!

    I’m not sure I’d do the slip and slide…lol

    Happy TT!

  10. Sounds like you’re having an awesome start to the summer! Hopefully there’s plenty more fun to be had the next couple of months!

  11. Fun list!
    We’ve done the swimming (both lessons and playtime), I bought our first watermelon last night, but we haven’t eaten it yet, I’ve been reading and my oldest daughter reads before she falls asleep at night, sunburn on shoulders…ooops, and black fly, horse fly, and mosquito bites. Happy summer. :-)

  12. Virginia, like the state!

    No one should ever outgrow the Slip N Slide!!! :) I remember we used to add dish soap to make it extra slippery!

    Happy Friday! :)
