summer picks…

June 4, 2008

Do you remember the picks of last summer?

1. This summer is the summer when your mother makes you read…I know, totally boring but very necessary.

These are a good start:

Josiah- Prince Caspian

Riding bikes to a pizza dinner and movie date night to follow the finishing of the book. He’ll do almost anything for riding bikes together, pizza and movies.

Jack- Elmer and the Dragon

An after school program studying My Father’s Dragon had Jack completely obsessed with maps, knapsacks and dragons.

Lucy- All board books known to man. Animal picture books preferred.

2. Popsicle choice of the summer – we have returned to our old school ways. and you can eat like a 1,000 and never get sick of them. Verde is always gone first.

3. Josiah and I were daydreaming about going to one of these stores and a workshop after listening about them on NPR.

That Dave EggersTED award, awesome books, kind of screwed up like all good writers and artists, he’s my kind of guy…

The Superhero Supply Store in Brooklyn sounds like a great stop on a short summer vacation to NYC. a girl can dream…

4. I have a feeling Mika (Me) , The Flobots (Jorge and Josiah) and Queen (Jack’s new personal favorite) are the music choices of the summer.

I swear I hear “We are the Champions” at least 10 times a day.

Lucy is still holding strong to the Across the Universe soundtrack.

5. Picking blueberries, or picking anything for that matter. Picking is part of my spirituality, always touches me on a core level.

6. Going semi-vegetarian… for us this means eating veggie all week and ordering a Cuban sandwich at a restaurant on the weekend. Does that make any sense at all?

    you’re smart, a girl with a list and a plan for the summer. here I sit with only vague plans and ideas…which may get me in trouble down the line.

    p.s. based on the previous post, you might just be a binge carnivore, or a weekend warrior in the meat category! seriously though, kudos to the semi-veg… hope it works out in your favor.

    I always loved the beginning of summer. We’d always have a big talk about what we would do, made rules we always broke and usually spent the whole summer just hanging out…I hated it when school started. You’re a good mom Pache.

    mom is sooo funny, i was just about to post how our summers growing up were the BEST EVER!!!! i loved endless hours of floating in the pool, punctuated by 15 min. speed cleanings.

    picking AND eating an entire flat of strawberries. what a great childhood we had!

    package is due at the old house today.

  4. […] during the season of total freedom…a chance to get to fill the blank slate. you can read the list from 2008 and the year before that if you are […]
