I haven’t posted in Faaaaaaa—evaaaaaaa!! We have just been having too much fun. But just a quickie.
I absolutely LOVE summer. It has always been my favorite season even as a kid… I didn’t know how I would feel about it since school would be out and I would have two kiddos for most of my days and the added pressure of having them both not kill each other and not wreck the entire house…oh yea…and work!
BUT. I. ABSOLUTELY. LOVE. IT. Please, please, please – summer never end…I love that we don’t have to rush around getting to school in the morning. I love that I don’t have to time out naps to match up school pick up. I love that I get to see Bella when she is in a good mood – and give her positive attention because we have so much time together. I love that evenings are not rushed, that dinners are outside, and that we can stay up later and it isn’t going to ruin the next day. Beyond that, I love all the swimming, playing outside, quiet reading time that is treasured instead of dreaded. I love the visitors, unusual excursions, the desire to help with chores from my older kid (surprised me too!) because they are not rushed. I love the impromptu dance parties with my kids – and the silliness they have with each other. I love that I don’t mind doing a little work in the evenings, because my days have been so much more fun with my kids.
I’m not saying every moment has been perfect…but I sure have been enjoying the last few weeks. We did cousin camp with my sissy and kids, had a great visit with the Kennedy’s going to the fair and doing July 4…and I feel like it is already going by soooooo fast.
Okay..enough…must get back to work..
I’ll post pictures of Hawaii, cousin camp, Independence day, maybe…one of these days. I hope.
Also, I have the most amazing photo of Connor, Audrey and Caden…but I promised Connor I wouldn’t post his photos online…him being a teenager and all and not wanting that and such…so just so you know…he was actually there, just not available for the publicity 🙂
