1. I thrive on set schedules, (once a teacher, always a teacher), but I did enjoy dropping everything and heading out to the beach several times over the past couple of months. Seeing my boys really start to love the ocean was also really fun to watch.
2. Noel was around! I can't remember a time where Noel would leave around 8 and come home around 6, but this summer we experienced a "normal" daddy schedule, and it was weird (it was!) but so great to see him more.
3. It is MUCH easier getting out the door during the summer. I was born and raised in NC, and am still not used to the humidity, (so I welcome cooler weather), but not having to worry about coats and socks and hats is amazing.
4. Sibling time. My sister, Sarah, goes to University of Utah, so even though we talk all the time, we don't get to see each other every day (like I would prefer.) :) We've been able to see her, my sister, Jessica, and my brother James all throughout the summer...and it's been a treat!

What will you miss most about summer? I hope it's been a good one!
