Summer Plans?

Do you have any special vacations or plans for the summer?  Do you have anything that you look forward to doing each year?

Summertime means baseball or softball games for my family.  Our trips/vacations are all centered around tournaments.  Last year, we followed one grandson out-of-state to Mississippi and Arkansas for games.  He plays on multiple teams.  The next to youngest is also playing tournament ball but his is mostly in the Houston area.  My granddaughter plays softball but is taking the summer off because her mom is having surgery.  Another grandson recently finished spring soccer but they usually go to a tournament before Labor Day. 

Another summer tradition for my family is helping with Vacation Bible School.  Ours actually starts tomorrow.

Every year I make plans to tackle cleaning out the closets and extra bedrooms and getting rid of stuff.  Mostly it doesn't get done and I am left to try to figure out what happened to summer.  It flies by so quickly. 

We do get in a lot of family time together at lunch time.  Two of my daughters are teachers and they usually come for lunch.  The grandkids are trained too.  They usually text me to see if I am cooking anything for lunch.

I hope you all have a great summer and try to stay cool!
