My favorite summer treats aren’t the usual ideas of summery fun. I did get to the beach this summer, and I’m adding a pic on the right of our last day there, where we caught the sunrise. You can’t see them in the picture (because I chose to enjoy the moment, rather than try to capture it and miss it), but dolphins were playing everywhere that morning.
Back to my unusual summer treats; my favorite thing about summer is that my kids are home. (Mostly, if they’d stop visiting all the grandparents.) I know that part’s not so unusual. Lots of people enjoy that.
The thing is, we’re sort of mole people. We stay inside with one of my other favorite summer treats–central air conditioning. Obviously, I’m old enough to have not had it so, believe me, I know the difference. There’s a lot to be said for low humidity and a constant temperature.
I’d think it was just me getting older, but my kids are worse than I am. “It’s so hot out there,” they used to argue when I tried to get them to go out and do things. (Don’t worry–they still exercise, just inside.)
And that brings me to my final summer treat: constant video games. Now that there’s no studying we can do anything we want. There’s reading, some TV (not as much as you’d think), and lots of video games. We play Legend of Zelda. We have several different versions of the game going now concurrently. I play Animal Crossing: New Leaf on my 2DS and the kids play different games on theirs. Fire Emblem, several incarnations, is a big one this summer for the oldest.
