Magical Summer

In our house we “live” for summer. I am a teacher, and by March I am daydreaming of leisurely summer days with no schedule, not rushing out the door, and not having to frenetically emailing, or texting a teacher about a forgotten note or permission slip. The first weeks of summer vacation are busy, sleepovers on weeknights, staying up late, movies, ice cream, parties, swimming, the fun has begun. Then around the 15th of July the magic starts to fade.
