Summer is coming . . . well, here in San Antonio, it really is here already. It's been in the 90's now for awhile.
As a child, I used look forward to and relish the lazy hazy days of summer. I loved playing in the sprinkler, going to the pool, and voraciously reading as many books as I could get my hands on among other things like VBS. I always thought about how fun it would be to be on the other side of that coin watching my children do all these things and more. As I sit here thinking about what we should do this summer (and trying not to get overwhelmed), I realize how amazing our own moms were to plan and organize fun things so we wouldn't be bored all summer. A special thanks to my mom for all she did to ensure I had fun and learned as much as I could cram into my brain each summer!
As I think back on my summer days, I remember several fun book series I read in my tween years that will forever be near and dear to my heart.
The Chronicles of Narnia
The Mandie Books
Elizabeth Gail Series
Love Comes Softly Series
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Maud Hart Lovelace Betsy Books
Francis Hodgson Burnett
L. Frank Baum
Ok, ok, I'll stop! Anyone else remember these!
