When I woke up this morning...after I used my Flonase for allergies and Prilosec for heartburn....I thought about what it was like on a summer morning when I was a child.
It was so exciting to get the day started.I would jump out of bed and pull on a pair of shorts or my favorite skort. You do remember skorts don't you? Those cute litttle short and skirt combinations. I loved them.

I don't wear skorts anymore, but I did put on some shorts (proudly showing off my wonderful new scar on my knee)
I would then pull on my summer Keds. My dad always took us down to the local shoe store to get us a new pair of Keds at the start of the summer. I always chose red.
Well, guess what I still wear Keds. This year I have a great pair of patch madras Keds. You do remember patch madras don't you?
How cool are these? I can definitely feel my summer kid coming out.
It was then time to head downstairs for breakfast. I loved getting to choose which cereal I wanted. Lots of choices full of sugary goodness. Rice Krispies were my favorite. Loved the snap, crackle, and pop.
Guess what I loved a fresh peach cut up on my cereal and I still do. Today I had Kashi Heart to Heart, but still brought out my summer child.
After breakfast we were allowed to watch Captain Kangaroo on some days.
I loved Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Greenjeans. I don't watch much TV anymore, but I worked the crossword. A fun way to start the day.
Then it was time to hit the great outdoors. I didn't get to play today, but it was still cool enough this morning that I rolled down my car windows and let the wind blow my hair while I ran some errands. Brought back lots of memories of car rides before we had air conditioning. You remember those days don't you? My brother, sister and I would be crammed into the backseat sweating and fighting. It was great!!
So, I don't know about you, But I am enjoying my summer inner child. Before you know it, I will be at the local Woolworths eating Tootsie Rolls and drinking cherry Coke.
