Rainy days and summer dreamin

   Today is a rainy, messy hair kind of day.  Cameron is on a field trip exploring a cave, Madi is diligently writing a paper for my language class, and Ethan is at the Jr. High,  probably still smiling from last night's talent show.  It was a hard to leave the house kind of morning. Where you linger at the front door imagining you really don't have to go.
   This is the kind of day I would rather stay in bed for.  Hot cocoa and a down blanket. Old,  favorite movies and 4 loves to cuddle with. I am sure the two pups and our cat, Shadow would join in the cuddle fest too. These are the days when you want to sit on the back porch and drink in the smell of the rain, have a  tea party, and enjoy warm biscuits with jam.  
   I long for summer. For days when no alarm clock interrupts my slumber. For long, sunny days outside with no dress code and bubbles to blow about.  I long for my kids to play until dinner time and not be worried about bed times or homework.  For camps,  fun projects and tan lines. Time with cousins to pretend, giggle and share memories of the past school year. For growth spurts and pretty summer dresses. For trips near the water and time with good friends. For my feet in the grass, the sand or in the water.  Happy Friday lovelies...Are you longing for summer also?

Yes, can't wait for summer and the beach. We're lucky to live near the water in Connecticut. It's not open ocean but it's salt water and there are salt water creatures. Loved visiting. Following on Pinterest and Linky. Linda
