10 Things To Love About Summer '08


1. Sleeping until 7:30 a.m. - Much better than 5:30 a.m.

2. Afternoon naps

3. Watching Gracie discover new things on morning walks - "birds, trees, cars, woof woofs" and various other things I can't yet translate

4. Experiencing Gracie's unparalleled joy over the simplest of things - i.e Marshmallows (always accompanied with squeals of delight)

5. Countless hours of scrapbooking - o.k. I'll admit it - This is a year round pleasure - I'm an addict - Maybe there's a 12 step program for people like me

6. Watching Gracie try to imitate whatever Bailey does in the pool - I love to see that relationship forming between the cousins - even with the 8 year difference in age

7. Eavesdropping on daddy and daughter time (hard to explain in words, but if you've experienced it, you know what I mean)

8. New adventures

9. Being able to watch Gracie learn so many new things - Especially her impression of a monkey and her fake snoring (with eyes wide open)

10. Being able to slow down long enough to recognize what really matters in life
