Summer Break

Schools out... for the summer!!! I have been looking forward to this day since the beginning of September. I am not one of those moms that likes to send the kids off so I can get "me time." In fact, if I do have time for myself in an empty house, I get lonely and can't wait for the kids to return. I do like the occasional escape to the nail salon or lunch with friends though!! Actually, I love those escapes. But as most of you know, the school year was a bit of a struggle getting a certain kindergartner to happily and willingly leave in the morning. I totally get it, it is way more fun at home. Freedom to do whatever, whenever. Now we are officially on Summer Vacation!! Sleeping in, (and when the June gloom goes away, waking up to the sun beating through the window) taking our time to eat a nice big breakfast, art projects, playing outside anytime, swimming, just enjoying every moment together.

Here Alexis is making a placemat

We even used glitter and I got in on the action and made one with fireworks

After all the glitter and paint we needed a fun way to clean up... Wyatt helped with that

Then it was time for pedicures... *photo courtesy of Wyatt

I am not wonder women nor will I ever claim to be so while I am enjoying the day with the kids, the dishes will sit in the sink... possibly until tomorrow when they triple in size.
It is 2:00 now and we are pooped. (we meaning me) I am going to have to pace myself so they don't spend the rest of the day watching t.v, which would be absolutely fine with me if they did.

Happy Summer Vacation everybody!!! Enjoy the longer days and the sunshine (with sunscreen)


  1. Yeah, my sink looks the same way! We have 3 more days to go! I can't wait.

  2. Truly an amazing family. Thanks for these glimpses into your daily life!
