School starts in less than three weeks for us, and I’m in no way ready for fall.
When summer began I had the same feeling I think many moms do,
dreading wondering how I was going to fill all those summer days. But I forgot just how wonderful summer really is. Sleeping in every morning past eight, lounging around the house in our pajamas, with the only commitment being a daily swim lesson. There’s no rushing, no homework, and no real bedtime. We’ve all settled quite nicely into a daily routine of very little.
There’s been some motorcycle racing between Blue Guy and Yellow Guy.
Plenty of free playtime, bedhead and messes . . .
wild pony rides . . .
. . . and a little mutiny.
I’m loving this summer spent with my munchkins.
And ever since I discovered this, we’ve stayed plenty busy making a lot of this.
Time does what it does well, it flies incredibly fast. It is hard to accept the kids are back to school in less than three weeks. I look forward to a real schedule and more time for all those projects that have been placed on the back burner, but I am determined to enjoy what’s left of this break.
You’ll forgive me if the pace around here is a little slower during the next two weeks. You see, we’re incredibly busy savoring summer ~ there are only 19 days left.
