Whether you consider Memorial Weekend the start of summer, or the fact that school is out, or maybe that the weather forecast predicts temps in the 80s each day, there's no denying that summer is finally here!!  It feels a little different for me this year since I've already been on break for five weeks, and I'm not going to lie, there's a part of me that's sad.  Because summer means my maternity leave is kind of over and I'll be headed back to school in no time.  Not sure I'm ready to think about that, but luckily I've got ten full weeks of fun in the sun ahead of me. 

This summer, Brantley will be going to daycare part time--twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Honestly, this is probably the best case scenario for all involved.  I'll still get time with him, but I'll also get some one-on-one time with Holden.  Because Brantley will continue going to Miss Stephanie's regularly, he will still get time to play and socialize with his daycare friends, and the transition back to full-time this fall should be much easier. 

As for Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays...I see lots of walks, trips to the pool, early morning doughnut runs, playdates, picnics, Farmer's Markets, coffee dates with friends, lunch dates with Daddy, and tons more fun in our future.  In between pumping, breastfeeding, and caring for a newborn, of course.  (At what point do I stop referring to Holden as a newborn??)  Can't wait to see how this summer unfolds!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with some pictures of our Memorial weekend, which included our first firepit of the year, s'mores, and Holden's first trip to the pool.
