5 Things I ♥ About Summer!

I was tagged by Kat over at Art's Chili and if you don't know her, you don't know what you are missing! She is such a sweet gal, raising and home schooling 7 children! She is one of my new bloggy friends and I am having so much fun getting to know her, so make sure you go and check her out!

For this tag I am supposed to choose 5 of my favorite things about summer. I had a hard time deciding, but I think I found a few...although I know there are many more!!

So here we go...

1. SUMMER VACATIONS...with Ryan and I both being school teachers, we have most of our summers I love getting on a jet plane and soaring into the wild blue yonder!! This summer we took 2 vacations...Colorado and Michigan!

2. VBS...I love that the boys love to learn about Jesus and I love that our church puts on a fantastic vacation bible school!

3. SLEEPING IN...once again, with us being on a teacher schedule, we have the luxury of sleeping in during the summer! It may not happen as often as I want it to...but when I can sleep in, it is ssswwweeetttt!!!!

4. SWIMMING & HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS...since we put our pool in last summer, we have become the hostesses with the mostesses!! We love to have friends over for swimming, fun & food!

5. SUMMER FUN MOVIE TIME...this is the second summer that we have done this and it is great! Every Friday we load up and head to the movies with friends and lunch after! And the best part is is that we see 10 movies for $7 per person!

Thanks Kat for tagging me, I had lots of fun looking back through all of my summer fun! Now to choose 5 friends to tag. As many of you know, I usually DON'T do this part of tags, but this time I WILL!!!!

Great list Stacey! I loved it! I got tagged too by Hope from My Hope is in the Lord. I liked playing this game. It was fun. You did a great job. I bet you really appreciated your summers a lot since it is complete time off for you. That is wonderful. It looks like you had a great summer!

Sleeping in.....what's that?

Tim said...

Nice list Stacey! I love all of these things too, well except the swimming and I never get to sleep in. LOL

We are thinking about getting a pool in the future so I am wondering around what it costs. Got a ballpark?

Have a great weekend!

Love and Prayers,
