It’s hard to believe but we are already well into summer break down here! The end of the year parties and awards ceremonies are behind us, swim team is in full swing, and the Waldvogel family beach trip is mere days away! The kids and I are enjoying the slower pace of summer, though poor Raymond is still slogging through summer school. We’ve spent a lot of time at the pool, a lot of time with friends, and even managed to sneak in a little blackberry picking. Maybe we will surprise Raymond with a fresh blackberry crisp when he gets home from school!
