Summer Happies

My children, rather, my older teen children were so excited to get whole black olives at dinner tonight. They put them on their fingers and pretended some kind of story involving English soldiers bantering with each other and also talking back to the Queen. There was also lots of quoting of funny movie lines from the three of them, and, as always, the ever flowing random songs from Violet the jukebox. The mood is high and happy in our home, seeing as tomorrow is the last day of school. The girls spent all afternoon cutting their doodles out of their school workbooks, and making collages out of them. We’ve gone swimming in our pool once, and have a half flat of fragrant strawberries in the house. Summer is here, and boy are we happy about that!
