ArchiTalk Series: Summer Break
Welcome to ArchiTalks #10: Summer Break. ArchiTalks is a series curated by Bob Borson over at Life of an Architect, where a whole bunch of architectural bloggers all blog about the same topic on the same day. Curious what other architects are doing for their summer break? Check out the links to their blogs at the bottom of the post!
Summer break means so many things to me personally. There is the good: basking in the sun, long summer nights, drinks on the deck. There is the bad: mosquito bites, sun burns, scraped knees. But for me, more than anything, summer break means spending time with the family OUTSIDE! So I hope enjoy this little photo montage of our summer so far. Every summer has to start with an end though. For us that meant saying goodbye to a young lady’s first year of preschool, goodbye to Kindergarten, and goodbye to Law School. While all these goodbyes made me teary-eyed, there was a lot of relief and celebration with that last one! Without further ado… the Kalar summer break of 2015 thus far:
Summer Break means we now have a First Grader and an almost 4-year old!
Summer break means studying for the bar exam.
Summer break means T-Ball!
And a little lady who wants to be just like her big brother.
Summer break means getting caught in the rain (and sometimes on purpose).
It means taking time to fly a kite.
It means PICNICS!!!! YAY!!!
Did I mention that I love picnics?
Summer break means exploring on the North Shore of Lake Superior and….
exploring outer space!
Summer break means running through the sprinkler and…
squirt gun fights!!
It means playing at the playground and…
it means happy siblings (and happier parents because they are getting along!)
Summer break means race season (marathon #39 is under his belt… look out Boston- here he comes!)
Summer break means mastering the monkey bars and…
dancing like no one is watching.
It means relaxing and giggling.
It means the best birthday present ever: Mates of State!
Summer break means celebrating major milestones with my favorites co-workers and closest friends…
And I do mean celebrating! All because of this:
It truly has been a hallmark summer for us so far! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store for us! How has your summer been? What are your happy summer moments?
