As you probably know, we live here on campus, and it is so much quieter in the summer when the students are gone. I spent most of June on campus planning for the 2019-2020 school year and supporting the design and construction of the Lakeside Neighborhood. Our boys spent their days swimming in the Sutton pool and hanging out in the gym. They participated in Rollins’ Baseball and Soccer Camps. They loved it!
At the end of June, we set out on a road-trip adventure. We left Winter Park before the sun was up with plenty of snacks and nowhere to be until the end of July. Our trip included Savannah, Georgia, a tiny house in North Carolina, hiking to the top of Clingmans Dome in the Great Smokie Mountains National Park, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We spent most of July in Hell, Michigan (yes, you read that right) with family. It was great to spend the hottest months of Florida away from Florida! I spent most of my mornings working remotely, drinking coffee, and wearing socks with birkenstocks. We filled our afternoons with swimming, boating, and squeezing every ounce of sunshine out of the long days. Michigan summer nights are perfect for sweatshirts and bonfires, smores and lightning bugs.
As July came to an end, we headed home. We explored Columbus, Ohio and Daniels, West Virginia on the way. As summer came to a close, we spent early August preparing for the school year. Jack started first grade. Thomas started kindergarten, and Henry began his first year at the Rollins College Child Development Center. We had a great summer, but we are so glad to have all the students back on campus. We missed you!
