It is absolutely normal as long as temp. arrow stays in the range (center of gauge), coolant and oil level is correct and there is no leak in the system.
I would not worry about it ...
Enjoy summer !

it's normal, it's a design thing so you dont have to wait long periods of time for heat in the winter and also efficency (the vehicle is most efficiant at operating temps) as long as the needle doesnt go into the red it's not overheating.
