You know it’s summer when…
Homemade ice cream becomes an entree.
You don’t match up socks in the laundry anymore because everyone (except Daddy) runs around barefoot or wearing flip-flops.
There is always time for one more bike ride before bedtime.
Kool aid packets litter the counter after kids come in from the outdoors to make yet another pitcher of the lime green stuff.
The pool bag remains packed and ready at the door 24/7.
The most exciting event on Saturday morning is making it the farmers market just as it opens to beat the midmorning heat.
Time takes on a new dimension as days get longer and warmer.
The grill cover is never replaced because something is cooked on it everyday.
Suddenly you are scouring all of your cookbooks and the internet for one more recipe for zucchini.
Searching for a shady area to park your minivan while shopping at Wal-Mart resembles the hunt for Sasquatch.
You are more willing to swing a little longer, walk a little slower and breathe a little deeper.
