School's out for the summer!

Sing along if you feel the urge! Sean has officially finished his first year of law school. Congrats to you babe for a successful first year! I tried to brace myself for the worst last fall because everyone says the first year is so crazy and stressful. I can honestly say Sean seemed more at ease with school this year than he did during his final year of his undergrad. He's not one to stress anyway, but I had no idea what to expect. I was afraid I would never see him, but thankfully that wasn't the case at all. I think back to last year when we were waiting to hear back from schools and I am so glad that phase is over.

Sean started his clerkship (he gets mad when I call it an internship) yesterday. So far he really likes it and is excited that he is getting some real experience and is not just a pee-on (I know, not the most eloquent term). The attorney he is working for keeps him really involved. I'm happy he seems to be enjoying it so much.

One of our favorite parts of the summer so far? Shaved ice! We've hit up the shaved ice shack a few times already and will most likely go multiple times each week all summer. It is one of the things we've missed-- for some crazy reason it doesn't seem to exist in the east.
I am also very excited about my new flower boxes:

Let's see if I can keep the flowers alive...
So, bring on summer! The pool at our clubhouse is opening up soon so if you feel like taking a swim, come on over!

I love your flower boxes. My flowers are still alive so I think there may be hope for yours too.
