today was the last day of summer vacation for tucker. he had a busy summer. we didn't take any big trips, but we did keep busy. i was horrible at keeping up with the blog (still) but here's a few things i can remember.
he had swimming lessons and t-ball. he spent a week with two of his cousins at nana and papa's house. we went camping (once - super huge bummer, but next year we will go more). he went to the races with papa and natalie. he did a few road trips with them too. he had his cousin spend the night a couple times. he spent the night at papa and gram's big ol' house too. he rode his bike. he had a rummage sale with gram. he earned himself quite the little farmers tan. he helped his dad prepare for deer hunting (already). he had a few playdates. he finally started playing with the neighbor kids. he went fishing (and got skunked). he swam, drew with chalk, got dirty in the sandbox, and went to the park. he helped his dad trim up the yard. he stayed up late. he got up early. he had many giggles with his brother. he went to the library (and got books about the human body and the weather). he rode in a dozer, dump truck and skidsteer. he went to daycare and even had days that auntie natalie got to watch him.
he had a good summer and i know he's sad to see it end.
tonight he said he didn't like fall because that's when school starts. it's funny how one summer vacation can turn you into a 'normal' kid ... already mourning the long summer days of being free to do as you wish.
