Last Friday was Sweet Guy’s last day of school. He ended his 7th grade year of advanced placement (AP) classes with straight A’s. I thought a little celebration was in order last Saturday morning. I set the table with happy Polish pottery and linens I found at the flea market while living in Germany.
The tablecloth and napkins had the initials “EG” on them so I had to bring them home for Eric Gunn, aka Mr. Décor.
You know what I love so much about summer vacation? Fresh berries and strawberry freezer jam. Yum! I shall never tire of a dollop of jam spooned onto a fresh croissant.
Our summer schedule is busy but time is being made for fun. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings I take my online college classes, write papers, etc. Monday afternoons are spent at the library getting books for the week as Sweet Guy is participating in a summer reading program. This is also when I do the required reading for my classes. This past week we ended our outing with a trip to Sonic. A cheery limeade for me and butterfinger milkshake for the boy.
On Wednesday afternoons we work on Boy Scout merit badges. Currently we are working on the Communications Merit Badge. One requirement is attending a public meeting. We opted to attend the town hall public arts meeting. While the boy took notes and sighed heavily during the 90 minute meeting I was somewhat fascinated on how artwork and signage was selected for the town. But then I am a bit of an art nerd.
Friday’s have been deemed “Cultural Fridays”. We can either create art, visit a museum, attraction or performance. Last week my choice was the Perot Museum. This week the boy has selected going to the theater to view “Tomorrowland”.
We don’t have any big family trips planned this summer as I am in school full time. But Sweet Guy will be attending two weeklong Boy Scout adventure camps. We might make a trip down to Houston to help my cousin Linda and her family as they are moving there next month. Weeeeeee!
Have a lovely weekend,
