What Are You Excited About This Summer?

image Summer is here, and if you ask my kids this is the most exciting time of the year.  This year, they are off at the beach for several weeks while dear old Dad is left behind to work and continue the normal routine.  That said, there are a number of things coming up soon which I am very excited about this coming summer.  I’ve written about many of them here before, but I thought I would list them out again here in chronological order.  God willing, these are the things I am looking forward to this weekend:
