summer of '09

"There's 104 days of summer vacation
And school comes along just to end it
So the annual problem for our generation
Is finding a good way to spend it"

If you're familiar with the above lyrics, then you're a parent. This has definitely been a "Phineas and Ferb" summer for the Spann Fam.

I don't know exactly how many days of summer vacation we've had, but I DO know that there are only 12 days left! We've received the "hi, I'm your teacher this year" letters, the back-to-school meet & greet is on the calendar and we'll celebrate with a splash at our church's end of summer bash.

This weekend Claire will play in her last softball tournament of the season. It will be her first tournament as starting at first base and she's pumped. It'll be a great time.

Kelly has enjoyed his re-entry into the world of football this week. It's going to take some time getting to know the players, but he really likes his fellow coaches and is looking forward to school starting.

I'm particularly looking forward to the school routine again, especially since I've reduced my hours at work. I'll be working from 8am - 3pm, just in time to pick the kids up from school. I am thrilled!!

It's been a great summer. Lots of action. Lots of decisions. Some more difficult than others. But I haven't been this excited about life in a while. Summer 09 will not be soon forgotten!
