Project 365 {week 21}

This week in Sluiter Nation, summer officially arrived.

Now, I know…summer isn’t officially here via the calendar until June.

But in Sluiter Nation? It’s summer.

May 20: first boat ride of the season.

*May 21: Squishy faced Charlie Bird

May 22: First stitches

May 23: Jamming on the new blankie from miss Melanie

May 24: Angry Birds band-aids make boo boos better.

May 25: How YOU doin'?

*May 26: At the car wash!

We have boat rides and outdoor play.

Boo boos and car washes.

Crocs and rompers.

Flowers planted and bark spread.

It’s summer in Sluiter Nation.


Speaking of summer…I wrote this piece about what teachers do with their summers: It Must Be Nice…

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. So sweet. Love the recap! 🙂

  2. Yay for summer!!

  3. Love.

  4. Charlie is already changing so much and getting big. Don’t you just want to stop time sometimes? Great pics. I’d love to go on a boat ride. Enjoy…
