Life is rushing head-long into summer! I am swimming at least 2 times per week (last Saturday I fell asleep at the pool – nice little sunburn) and eating lighter and healthier. My kids are winding down in their book clubs – several have finished and are now on to projects – and are chomping at the bit to get out of school.
