This may be a first. This may be the first summer of my daughter’s high school summers that we actually get to stay home. It’s a whole new world!
The last couple of years, by this time, we were either in – or packing for – Colorado to get her immune system out of the heat.
But with new treatments from National Jewish Health added to her regimen last year, our medical instructions are:
“Stay in the heat and humidity and see how it goes.”
As my daughter put it: I’m ready for some overrated normal.
Yesterday it was 90 and she walked to church for youth group, so … so far so good!
Having a whole summer to play with, we are committing our time to God, anticipating seeing Him do wonders right here in our hometown/city of a million.
We have some ideas in the works:
- Operation Art for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
- Producing videos for our co-op class; older kiddos playing fun bit parts to make history not only come alive, but hopefully make the younger ones laugh while they learn
- And today in the kitchen: Zucchini Bread with the hugest 3 for $1 dudes I’ve ever purchased! (Yay for the farmer’s market!)
How do you spend your summers at home?
We’d love some hot weather ideas because it’s a new one on us (again!)!
One thing I could do this summer … figure out where that exclamation point should be: inside or outside the parenthesis? Hmmm, reminds me of our summer plans. Inside? Or outside? Or cross-the-country-side?
