Now that the kids are out of school... How's everyone's summer going?

Mine had been very busy! Huge piles of laundry, cleaning, lots of cooking, play dates, lessons, camps, etc.

What do you wish to do during the summer?

I long for weeks of just lying on the beach, eating out, shopping, hanging out with friends... Seems like those are but a distant memory.

Tonight I thought of how the years had passed by so fast and pretty soon the children will be off to college and I don't know how I will ever handle that. Just thinking about it makes me sad.

So for now even if my days are filled with a long list of to do's, I will have a grateful heart and cherish each moment that we are together.

It's been one long weekend. My dh hasn't worked in over 2 months, I'm a sahm and the kids have been out of school since the 7 th.

We have gone swimming, BBQ'd, and just hung out. I'm probably going to take them to the beach next week :)

All I wish for is to keep enjoying it!

My kids are eating me out of house and home!

We are vacationing. I am a teacher so I have the summer off. I have mixed feelings because I love the time off, but wish my own kids still had the structure of school...

 Other than doctors appointments we're doing nothing over the Summer.  On purpose, everyone needs the down time!

Oh the fighting! When they aren't fighting, things are great. They really miss school. So much we had to go buy workbooks for the grades they will be in next year. We are moving very soon, so our days are mostly spent getting everything ready. We make sure to take time out everyday to do something with them. Even if it's helping them with the workbooks, listening to them read, watching a movie, or getting ice cream. They grow up way to fast. Makes me sad.

We still have 3 more half days of school here. But we have been getting our summer on so far nicely. Cookouts and swimming, going to the playground and hiking along with biking. I love summer time. We will be fishing and going camping. Watching the fireworks every weekend. We usually have busy summers here, along with our lazy rainy days :)
