“Well, maybe not officially,” I say. “But your summer vacation from school has started.” He will concede me that point.
Lazier days. Later nights. Swimming pools. Sleep-overs. Even some days with no schedule at all.
We start to make plans for special trips. We schedule the “alone” days at Grandma & Grandpa’s. The mood is pregnant with expectation. Right now, the Summer of 2012 could be anything at all.
And I feel every minute of it. Every stinkin’ perfect minute of it. In a way I haven’t really felt since my own “School’s out for summer” days.
It’s barely begun. And I can’t wait for the rest. Can’t wait to live the Summer of 2012. Really, REALLY live it!
