Summertime has officially started in the Teague household! The kids finished school with a half day on Thursday and it is so nice to have a slower start to our days. 

I'd like to think that with no schedule I'll be blogging more, but I've grown quite reliant on my iPhone and Instagram.  It's so easy to take pictures of food and post them that way. 

I know half of the world is now entering into summer.  I'm sorry to those of you who are now entering into winter (unless you like that sort of thing). 

We have a fun summer planned! As our children grow older, our strategies for making memories get more expensive change a bit. 

We've joined a pool for the first time because our kids each have close friends that also belong.  Each of the kids will also be attending some sports camps. 

We've also decided to continue with our annual summer trip to the Gulf shores of Florida!  We actually decided to rent a house on Anna Maria Island for several days as a change - we'll be within walking distance of our favorite cinnamon bun cafe beach! If it's not too hot, we may rent bikes or kayaks. Our trip south will coincide with July 4th, so we hope to catch fireworks sometime that night. 

All in all, I'm just so excited!  It seems that with each year that passes, we realize that we only get to create experiences for a short time.  In all reality, Josh will be 15 this summer and our time together is fleeting.  We've grown more protective of our time together as "just us".  I've noticed that Rob is trying to work less and our hope is that our children will have very special memories of being together. 

So....what are your plans for the new season? Vacation destinations? Recipes you're dying to try? Crafts you hope to make? Plans for having fun with the kids? I'd love to hear all about it!
